Tesla Electric car needs too much power for Melbourne homes.

This article from news.com.au THE world’s biggest-selling electric luxury car goes on sale in Australia on Wednesday December 10 but the $100,000 Tesla sedan may have its plug pulled because its special charger is too big for most local electricity grids. Unlike other electric cars, the Tesla cannot be recharged via a normal power point and requires a special charger to be installed at home or work at a cost of up to $10,000 — and may also need to have the local electricity substation upgraded at a cost of more than $50,000, according to experts.
