Across Australia, more and more drivers are considering the switch to an electric vehicle.
For many, it's because their car fuel costs could drop to as little as 2 take-away coffees a week.
Would you consider it?

Most likely, yes. On average, Australians drive about 40km a day and all the EVs out in market can support this distance. Some Teslas can drive up to 600km on a single charge – you’d only need to charge once a week.
Sure can. Depending on what car you have, you may need to stop more than a few times. Look out for locations with the Supercharger rapid chargers - some can charge up to 80% of your battery within 30 minutes.
Absolutely! There are a number of home charging solutions that can increase the speed of charging your EV at home. The charger you choose and charging speeds will depend on the your property and on your EV. Most residential properties have Single Phase power, which means the maximum charge rate is 7kW (around 3x faster than your wall socket). If your property has 3 Phase power you might be able to install a 22kW charger, though this is usually available only at commercial properties.
