    An interesting fact to consider about charging EV's. I recently read an article about Owners Corporations now having to consider how they will modify (and pay for) changes to infrastrucyture in apartment buildings to accommodate charging of EV's in shared garages. Not all tenants have a car, let alone an EV. And how will electricity be metered so teh EV user pays for energy they use ? Some building have individual meters on the level where the apartment is located. Imagine having to co-locate another meter on the 27th floor but with the EV charging station in the basement ?

    The article posed the dilemma faced by Owners Corporations who now have to plan for these changes and figure out who pays.. In some cases, the feed in power to the building is not sufficient to accommodate a large uptake of EV's all being charged (say) overnight. I also muse about driving any long distance in an EV, getting to a charging station and finding a lineup of cars also awaiting charge. How long would you have to wait to get on your way again ?

    And if we get a large uptake of EV's where is all the power to charge them going to come from ?

    it's a great question - and given how long the infrastructure sits around for, it takes some careful planning.

    my brothers and I are doing a development down the coast... 1.5hrs from Melbourne. It's taken a lot of time and effort (and money) with the builder, sparky and Powercorp to make sure that we can have adequate (and only adequate, not amazing) infrastructure for future EV demands on our properties. and that's just to solve from the pit to the houses. doesn't do anything to solve the issues at a grid level.

      Good for you. Always smarter and cheaper to make provision for the future than retrofit later.

        Looks like Tesla made money in Jul-Aug 18.

        No idea whether the shares are good value. Unclear yet how long they will continue to have demand for 20,000+ Model 3s a month because no one has ever built and/or sold anything like 20,000 EVs a month before. They say they hold 300,000+ paid deposits globally. And they haven’t started selling Model 3 outside US/Canada yet and have introduced a slightly cheaper version there (I think $US45k or $AU65,000ish).

        But at least they’ve shown if you make a compelling EV people will buy it and you can make money selling it.

        Consistently building 4500 Model 3 a week with target of 7,000.

        RHD Model 3 deliveries inc Australia will reportedly start mid 2019 (so probably later ha ha).

        Reports that recent results with Model 3 sales/finance performance means Model Y (mid size SUV based on Model 3) will come to market much sooner than previously expected, with production in China.

        Interesting times. Model 3 looks like the “Model T” of EVs to me.

        Jag sold about 700 IPace globally in Sep 2018. Tesla sold 22,250 Model 3 in North America.

            Another 20,000 Model 3 built/sold in North America in October, total now 116,000+ and production 4,650+ a week and rising steadily.
            Interesting thing about Model 3 is theyre not really cannibalising sales of other BEVs, either Tesla (X or S) or other brands/models, sales of everything else ticking along too. Which IMHO is the flaw in the “Tesla killer” argument - all these BEVs can happily sell alongside each other as people move from ICE to BEV. It’s not multiple manufacturers fighting for bits of 1% of the market like seagulls squabbling over a chip at the beach.
