The new Horizon Energy DC fast charger in Whakatane will be open and ready for use on Monday. 

It's a "Terra 53" (the ABB unit used by Vecotor, WEL, Unison and others) charging station with 2 x 50kw DC CHAdeMO ports and 2 x Mennekes Type 2 and 2 x CCS (type 2) (according to the Plugshare entry).

It's at 35 Quay St, Whakatane. 

This opens up Opotiki and the East Cape to EVs as well as making Gisborne a possibility (182km) with a short top-up along the way, perhaps at Matawai.

Awesome.  

 

Of course, if you have a Tesla with a big battery you can go anywhere you want right now. No problem.

Stuff also has a story on the Hyundai EV 

 

http://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/news/87630529/hyundai-nz-to-launch-electric-eclectic-and-exciting-small-cars-in-2017

 

 

The price the story quotes is very tempting for a locally sourced EV. Someone on FB called Hyundai Manukau and asked about how to buy one...and that dealership said the price in the story wasn't necessarily the price and that Hyundai HQ hadn't released a price yet.

 

The battery in these is 28.5kWh, I think. The efficiency is supposed to be really good. They claim 225km. I'd say it would be very close to a 30kWh LEAF, all things considered. I was headed for 250km the other day, headed down the southern motorway and including the Bombay Hill. 

You can see I drove just over 75km for 30% of the battery.....so /3 = 25km....times 10 for 100% = 250km. :-)  Actual, real driving rate. So how far the Hyundai Iconiq could go will be up to the driver, the drive...and the weather on the drive. :-)

News today from charge.net: the DC Fast charger in Petone / Lower Hutt at the corner of Hutt Road and Jackson St is now back online after 3 months of renovations at the Z station on the site.

 

Wellington is now at 3 DC fast chargers (if you don't count the one in Featherston), though it remains to be seen if the one at the Dowse Museum will stay as it was a replacement for the one shut down at this site during the renovations.  Charge.net say there are no immediate plans to remove it.

If you're still here? 

I hope that's not an existential "still here".

Nissan LEAF Gen2 assumed: 

 

There appears to be a DC fast charger under construction at the Warehouse in Balclutha. That would make a drive from Invers <--> Dunedin an easy thing. 

 

Dunedin to Waimate would be do-able in a 30kWh LEAF.....though a 24kw LEAF could do it easily enough with a 2 hour-ish 16amp charging stop along the way at a campground. 

 

Waimate to Timaru is a short hop (45km).

 

Timaru to Chch is another larger jump...164km. But again, a couple of hours charging at a campground along the way would remove all doubt.

 

So you could start in the morning about 6am and get to Christchurch in time for a late supper.  Not as fast a petrol car, sure....but zero emissions and a nicer ride. 

 

Tesla Model S P90D assumed:

 

Invers to Waimate. 363km.

DC Fast Charge for 90 mins in Waimate.

 

Drive to Chch.

It's free until 1 June. You can charge for up to an hour.

 

Linuxluver: It's at 35 Quay St, Whakatane.

 

No it isn't. I don't know the correct address, but 35 is the wrong side of the street :)

That's the address they (Horizon) put on the Plugshare entry. I'll be there at some stage over the next couple of week, hopefully. :-)

 

(EDIT: They have changed the address on Plugshare to 30 Quay St.)

If you go to https://www.tesla.com/en_NZ/supercharger and select '2017' you'll find the three stations planned for NZ next year!

 

 

 

Thoughts on the placement? Should make Wellington - Auckland relatively easy.

Te Kauwhata is definitely live today. 

 

Whakatane went live yesterday. This charger puts Gisborne within the realms of possibility for anyone in a 24kw or 30kw Gen 2 LEAF happy to do a short charge on the way from Whakatane and stay overnight in Gisborne to charge up. Likely, as Auckland to Gisborne is a long drive for anyone. :-) 

 

Getting better every day for EV owners wanting to roam the landscape this summer. :-)

Although unless you are a current owner, its going to be pay-to-charge

 

http://www.theverge.com/2016/11/7/13549828/tesla-supercharger-fee-january-2017-model-3-preorders

 

"Tesla is making a big change to its network of free fast-charging stations. Any customer who orders a Tesla Model X or Model S after January 1st, 2017, will have to pay “a small fee” when filling up at a Supercharger station. Customers will also have to take delivery of those cars by April 1st, 2017 — so the fees will apply to people who preordered the Model 3. Tesla says the fee will be “less than the price of filling up a comparable gas car.”"
