This is great news! I have thought for some time the easiest way for governments to drive the uptake/education of EV’s is to switch to electric buses. I hope...

EV fast-charging network to roll-out in Australia after funding boost
42 sites, each with a minimum of two 350kW fast chargers
“That all adds up to about $1 million a site,” adds Mills. “So that initial investment (of $7 million), that gets us going.
Great to see more chargers especially...
NRMA to build EV fast charging network | The NRMA
$10 million for 40 chargers (~$250K each) seems like a lot, any idea what WA, QLD or SA works out as? I don’t think Tesla superchargers cost this much but they put more chargers per site which must be cheaper.
Edit: related report...
For anyone interested in watching live and will probably be available afterwards as well.

this is from the Tesla website and came up in a Tesla RSS feed I still follow. It is not showing on the main maps, can anyone confirm it shows in a car or better yet go past.
Looks similar to Euroa so possibly a skid.

i read this article and thought that Tesla must have a major efficiency game for model 3 with less drivers needed to test and move cars around Tesla facilities given AP2 can automate much of this. Would still need someone for part of the QA testing (human ears for checking for noises) but almost...

Good to see some competition, I wish they could launch a 7 seater. Hope they are successful and go ahead with a charging network but if the focus is commercial they may not hit freeways like Tesla.

Updates on Powerwall in AU in some articles below, I assume some TMC members will be early adopters and I am very interested to get any updates... I want to get powerwall+PV and a model 3 or if I win lotto a model X, unfortunately the AU x-rate has probably killed the x dream;-(...
I noticed this graphic and was interested as I have often thought the same things about Tesla and EVs in general. That is that the benefits to the health budget should offset quite large concessions to move to electric vehicles. The numbers below are based on powerplant polution reduction but...
