‘Always be charging’: is the great Australian road trip ready to go electric?

With a rise in the availability of EV rentals – and a marked increase in charging stations – Oliver Pelling set out on an 800km trip along the Great Ocean Road

The first blunder of my all-electric road trip occurs in Lorne, some 145km from my Melbourne home.
