electricity is pretty reliable... my guess is that ice cars are more likely to need to be towed that a tesla, there is a lot more than can go wrong.

The only on-street charging point that I am aware of has been "not working" for a a few weeks now. It's in Stockport (near Manchester).

I don't have any car so it does not bother me.

Red dots are super chargers, grey are standard slower chargers.

How about equivalent maps for regular gas stations? (Just for comparison - level playing field etc)

What would be the point of that? The point of the maps is that counter to your uninformed assumption, there are plenty of places to charge.

I can get 600 mile range at a "charging" point for my diesel car in about five minutes.

How long does an all-electric car take?
How does the map look now?

It only looks good while take-up is niche.

Maybe it is time to buy into copper futures...

How often do you drive 600 miles in a day?

Not that often, but it is essential that I have a reserve of 300 miles in case my elderly mother's condition worsens suddenly.

They don't because the scale is too small.

300 miles is easily doable with a 20 minute stop at a supercharger.

Hi,

https://www.drivezero.com.au/electric-car-charging-stations/#all

Maps of Australia with available charging stations, if you click on each they will tell you who/when the last user was.

I note quite a few that have not been used this year.
Until the Fed Gov gets its act together about EV, the infusion of electric cars here will not be as enthusiastic as other countries.
