Bought yourself a Tesla? Not sure if you can make it past the NSW border in one drive? Worry no more. Tesla have launched a series of brand new Superchargers in Australia which will settle their promise of connecting the eastern capital cities.
Tesla’s existing Superchargers have only been located in metro Sydney and Melbourne in the past, but now the NSW town of Goulburn has become the first to receive them along with Wodonga outside of the two major cities.
What this means is that local Model S drivers can now venture on long-haul journeys beyond their respective cities. The Goulburn Supercharger site consists of 8 bays which will allow Tesla drivers to charge their cars for free. A Sydney to Canberra return trip is now achievable with just a single 20-30 minute fast charge, whilst drivers wishing to venture further down south can do so by stoping off again at the Wodonga Supercharger site on the Victorian border.
Both the Goulburn site and Wodonga site have officially opened today to ensure free travel between Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. The American company intends to expand further up north coast in the future with a Supercharger site planned for the northern NSW town of Gundagai. This will form part of the Sydney to Brisbane route.
