Tesla made several significant announcements last week regarding charging in Australia, which is becoming an increasingly important market for the company.
They announced a partnership to deploy destination chargers at 31 shopping centers across the country and offer one year of free charging at home to new owners.
Stockland announced that it is investing $200,000 to deploy the chargers at its shopping centers from Cairns to Melbourne.
At the Tesla shareholder meeting this past week CEO Elon Musk spoke about the Model 3 rollout and provided some more color on the Model Y.
