The Expansion of Australia’s EV Charging Network Driven by Tesla’s Supercharger V3

The electric vehicle charging landscape in Australia saw significant growth in Q4 2023, with Tesla playing a leading role in the expansion of the network. According to a report by Next System, Tesla’s Supercharger V3 Network accounted for more than half of the country’s EV charging ramp. The report included a detailed analysis of data from Carloop, encompassing metrics such as the number of EV charging sites, the number of charging stalls, and their overall installed capacity.

In Q4 2023, a total of 50,500 kW of installed charger capacity was added to Australia, a marked increase from the 13,600 kW added in the same period in 2022. This expansion included 126 new Supercharger V3 sites, each capable of supplying up to 250 kW of power per vehicle. With peak rates of up to 250 kW per car, a Model 3 Long Range could recover up to 75 miles of charge in just five minutes.

Despite this impressive progress, the report indicated that Tesla holds just a 10% market share based on the raw number of EV charging sites in Australia. However, Tesla’s average of 5.9 chargers per site in Australia is over three times the average of other networks, and the chargers themselves have higher power ratings. This suggests that Tesla is prioritizing the development of EV charging locations that can accommodate more vehicles and provide rapid charging services reliably.

Ultimately, Tesla’s focus on enhancing the EV charging infrastructure appears to be geared towards meeting the growing demand for electric vehicle charging in Australia. For inquiries about news tips, please feel free to reach out to us.
