I'm not parochial, and not talking about our current location but viewing the current options around Australia.
WA electric highway is already in operation embraces all EV owners, but the upcoming Qld highway is expected yet to be commenced in 6 months and not support all current EV's. Now that's ironic.
Good luck for your type 2 upgrade, hope it all works out for you.
Given that there really are hardly any EVs in this country, and few owned by 'normal people', the changeover going to have a very small impact. They're doing it in New Zealand and nobody is crying.
Far more important will be the infrastructure in place for people buying new vehicles when they only come with Type 2 based charging ports - my guess is that this will be from MY2018 or thereabouts. Just watch how quickly the Type 1 based charge plugs disappear from charge stations.
And again, anything less than DC 50kW - the absolute minimum required for the average punter to be even vaguely interested in an EV - is a waste of time for a 'Superhighway' charging network. Leave the low power EVSE stuff to shops, businesses and hotels where you want to spend more than 20 minutes.
Looking forward to the small crowd of whingers. I expect it won't even make the news. New owners will be wondering what all the fuss was about. I'll get my popcorn. Over and out.
