Yeah, the count is identified cars by photo and registration number, so the well known Berriedale resident with two Model S’ is accounted for J

On EVs in general: Clive Attwater was talking about the number of EVs in Tasmania on Thursday. He said the Dept of State Growth (formerly DIER) didn’t have a categorisation for electric vehicles – in fact some people who I’ve spoken to have said they had to put a number of cylinders when registering and there was no way around it. Some have said their vehicle is therefore nominally a 4 cylinder car. Others have put 1. Really, they should be fixing their database so that fuel type is a field: Petrol, diesel, LPG, electric – preferably a way to identify hybrids and PHEVs as well. However working in IT I know that changing a database schema is not a quick or easy change.

The total given was approximately 150: This comes from counting the number of vehicles of popular models (make=Tesla, model=Leaf, model=iMieV, etc) as well as adding the “1 cylinder” vehicles, etc.

This count was done earlier in the year (total was ~120) and around 30 new vehicles are known to AEVA members. Hence the number is quite approximate!

Regarding a supercharger in Tassie.. I was surprised to hear that a representative from Tesla Motors (probably Evan) will be at the opening of the Anvers charge point this week. Sounds interesting. I understand the “planned” Supercharger maps on their website refer to sites for which they have approved budget. If someone has pre-arranged land access, council permits and suitable electrical capacity for a charging station, the location was appropriate, and the surrounding facilities (food/coffee etc.) were good, and were to approach Tesla to ask if they could put in some SCs… who knows what may happen!

So basically no? Lol... I'm sure that after the main routes are covered we will be next? Hopefully before they start building to PER...

Even if we could just get something going that wasn't even a supercharger that would help...

Nice collection LGGD, are they yours?
I thought I had good collection!
I can't find a couple of the green roadsters, I think my kids have lost them

That's a pretty comprehensive collection. They were mine briefly, today they were given out as Christmas gifts at the South East Queensland owners lunch.

Was one of the S's in this photo a prior sighting or did you only notice one?

(In fact the eagle eyes will notice there are 3 in this pic..)

Ha, yep, only the grey one in the shot is a new spot.
