They have now announced charging stations from Santiago to Los Vilos, that's heading north half way to La Serena. The charging stations to Los Vilos will be open in November at the earliest and next year at the latest.

Interesting article, including maintenance costs for a Tesla that ran 100000 miles:

It's specially interesting because the guy has documented the trips on his blog and Twitter, so it's quite a read. Electric vehicles certainly look to be viable from a pretty financial point of view, although infrastructure development may take some time in Chile, given the current protests.

If you look here there is a good summary of the electric cars that you can buy in Chile today. This was published today. It's up to date, and accurate.

Went into pucon so the kids can use their roller skates at the park. Went to the grand hotel across the streets for a light lunch and drinks on the and noticed they had an electric car charging post in the valet area in the front of the hotel. Seemed to be a free one

Then later when getting ice cream on the main street
By the municipality there is another electric car charging post labelled Enel X and was clearly not free at a parking spot painted in solid green. Needed a card to use it

Color me surprised, albeit its only 2 spots it's a start. I thought the effort was focused on santiago and then to the north
