Free fast charging at dealers sounds great in theory but is it really a useful deployment of chargers? Good to see they are putting some of them where they are actually useful though!(on the motorways)
I know Nikki from Transport Evolved has said before that dealer fast chargers are often ICE'd or the person who has the swipe card is out for lunch etc. So a 15-30min charge can end up taking closer to an hour. Then there is the fact that they are unable to be used outside business hours!

There are only 10 Level 3 chargers in the WHOLE of the country and 6 don't work or are about to be decommissioned. ANY fast chargers is a good thing and around me there is a Nissan dealer in every town so roughly 50-100km apart so it would work fine.

Yes any fast chargers would be good. Currently WA has none and it would be handy to have a few in Perth city but the rest would be better placed outside the city close to highways with 24hr access.
