Is there any on-street charging?
Unfortunately, on-street charging isn't mainstream yet -- but a number of councils across Australia are currently trialling it.
For those without a garage or access to a power source, we recommend you check out your local council's website to see if they're currently trialling kerbside charging. If not, the next best thing is public charging. Check out the PlugShare website to see where your closest charging station is.
Where can I charge my electric car?
If you're at home, you can easily charge your electric vehicle by either plugging straight into a regular wall socket or using a Level 2 home charging station.
When you're out and about -- whether it's at work, the local shopping centre, or even on a roadtrip -- there's plenty of places to top up your car's battery. We recommend checking out the PlugShare website to see all of your local charging options. Go to www.plugshare.com to check it out.
What should I look for when buying a used electric vehicle?
As with buying any vehicle, there are a few important factors to consider. With electric cars, it's important to understand two things. Firstly, the battery. Check the health of the battery and the range that’s possible.
Secondly, work out how you'll charge it. Check the charging ports to make sure it’s compatible with infrastructure available near you.
