If you’re in the market for a new car and like to spend time on the Barrier Reef or touring north Queensland generally, a brand-new Tesla car just might be worth considering.

The Queensland Government yesterday announced that it’s backing a move to have 18 e-car fast-charging stations installed between the Gold Coast and Cairns – and recharges will be free for at least 12 months.

The stations will be able to recharge a typical electric car in about 30 minutes.

One report yesterday suggested that early usage of the charging stations might be low, given there are only about 700 fully electric vehicles registered in Queensland.

But the Government’s move, announced by acting Roads Minister Steven Miles, plainly isn’t aimed at e-car owning banana-landers. It’s more likely seeking visits by those hordes of Tesla drivers from the usually dreaded “southern states”, ie Victoria and NSW
