Zero-emission, fully electric vehicles from the pioneering US manufacturer Tesla have officially gone on sale in Australia.

The company of the billionaire Paypal founder, Elon Musk, opened its first Australian showroom in north Sydney on Wednesday morning, with plans to open stores in Melbourne next year. The Model S four-door sedan is the first Tesla vehicle available for Australian drivers.

Also unveiled on Wednesday were the company’s first two supercharger stations – one at its Sydney showroom, the other at the Star casino at Darling Harbour – which can half-charge the vehicle in 20 minutes and fill the entire battery in about one hour.
