Tesla: YES – We'll build a network of free Superchargers in Oz

Model S slated to land Down Under later this year

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Tesla has confirmed to The Register that a network of its Supercharger stations is planned for Australia after its Model S arrives, later in 2014.

The company has appointed consulting engineer and renewables specialist Evan Beaver to manage the Australian Supercharger program.

Tesla would not provide details on the rollout, but told Vulture South that “Australian Model S deliveries begin later this year and, shortly after, we will develop a Supercharger network in the country that enables owners to take road trips.”

There are currently more than 100 free-to-use Supercharger stations in the US, which Tesla says give its owners coast-to-coast travel, along with 56 in Europe and 13 in Asia. The stations are designed to give a range of more than 270km on a 30-minute charge, or a half charge in 20 minutes.

Earlier this year, early right-hand drive versions of the Model S started landing in Blighty, so it seems the 'leccy car maker is moving fast on international homologation.

While the company hasn't told El Reg where the charge stations will be, it's a fair bet that the Brisbane-Sydney-Canberra-Melbourne corridors will be high priorities. ®
