Id love there to be government buy in to electric vehicles but I cant see them wanting to spend any real money.
Unless.....Tewai smelter is closed and the government has to suddenly find a market for all that unused electricity to prevent the share prices of electricity companies that were floated a couple of years ago from tanking and Joe Public getting angry at the government.
On rapid chargers; I've used the Dunedin rapid charger twice in 6 months (first time was out of curiosity) usually charge at night at home. I got a 32A circuit put on the outside of my house.
32amp! You basically have have your own 'pretty-quick' charger. Adding 22-ish% per hour is very useful for topping up over lunch on the weekend.
