Until now Tesla Australia have taken the approach of building major SC routes based on spacings of around 200 km to allow convenient shorter rest, recharge and revive stops every 2 hrs or so. This model is based on that of more populated areas such as Europe, Asia and North America and is based on the assumption that drivers are driving longer routes in one stretch (e.g. Brisbane-Sydney, Sydney-Melbourne and soon Melbourne-Adelaide. While this is great for drivers in these bigger centers it leaves a lot of Australia left out and may not be suited to Australia's more scattered population. It also doesn't take into account any future improvements in charging speed. Once the major mainland capitals (except Perth and Darwin) have been linked Tesla should turn its attention to regional centers. Continuing the current pace and spacing of SC this will take forever. Also many regional trips may be shorter trips between regional centres of 4-600 km and so a more efficient method would be to double the spacing of SC. For example placing SC in Mildura and Hay would link Adelaide via these centers to the Gundagai SC and hence to Sydney with only 2 Addison all SC sites rather than the current standard requiring 4. Extrapolated across regional Australia this would double the rate of expansion. The opportunity for smaller centres along these regional routes would be for councils and local retail outlets to band together and install fast destination chargers to lure passing Tesla traffic to stop and spend a few dollars. In this way market forces would fill in some of the gaps. With time, faster charging and improved battery performance would also help to bridge these larger distances.
