Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) will soon build a supercharger network in Australia, which would certainly boost sales on the continent. According to Mat Peterson, founder of educational app developer Shiny Things (long-time Tesla fan, and Model S pre-order holder), the supercharger network in Australia has been confirmed.

In a Tweet, Peterson said, “Australian Supercharger network has been confirmed by Tesla enabling free road trips!”

Superchargers by early 2015

The electric car manufacturer will set up supercharger stations throughout the country, and Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) owners will be able to recharge their vehicles for free.

A post from Tesla Motors chief technology officer JB Straubel on the Tesla Motors Club, which is semi-official forum for Tesla owners and aficionados, also hints about the supercharger network.

Supercharger stations in Australia will first be seen in early 2015. Those who currently own a Tesla Model S can get their machine recharged at public EV charging stations using the IEC 62196 standard connector used at Charge Point and some other privately run installations.

Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model S in Australia will have the same connector as European cars, which will be compatible with single and three-phase power, and the onboard charger is compatible with a bundled 40-amp wall charger. Australian charging station that do not use the IEC 62196 standard will get an adapter by early 2015.

In Sydney, a Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model S has been deployed a for test drive, and probable customers have been invited to drive the right hand version of the Model S. A right hand model is now under production at Tesla’s San Francisco factory.

Tesla installing superchargers globally

The United Kingdom will get a right hand version of the Model S along with its first supercharger station in the month of June. Like the United States, there will be a string of supercharger stations in the UK as well, running from Dover and Briatol up to the M25 and to the north, charging a battery within 20 minutes.

A few days ago, Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) unveiled plans to build around 14 supercharger stations in Asia. On its website the company has an updated supercharger map that shows 14 new units, including two recently announced new superchargers in Beijing and Shanghai in China.
