Chargefox, claimed to be Australia’s largest public electric vehicle (EV) charging network, has revealed target locations for all 22 locations in the first phase of its ultra-rapid EV charging network.
They have also announced a target to grow over 100 ultra-rapid sites around Australia.
With five ultra-rapid stations already open, this first phase will result in 22 stations connecting Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, with additional sites in Western Australia and Tasmania. All ultra-rapid stations will be powered by 100 per cent renewable energy.
“We’re committed to making EV charging simple, fast and clean, and are thrilled to be leading the way in making this a reality for all Australians,” Chargefox CEO Marty Andrews said.
“Our plans to complete the first phase of our ultra-rapid network are well underway now. From our rapid growth over the past two years, we’re learning how drivers in Australia use EVs, and are now using those lessons in future planning to grow the network Australians need.”
The next 17 locations in the first phase of the Chargefox ultra-rapid network:
- NSW: Gundagai, Sydney, Ballina, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Karuah, Cooma, Shell Cove and Goulburn.
- Victoria: Ballarat, Moe and Horsham.
- Tasmania: Central Tasmania.
- South Australia: Greater Adelaide and Keith.
- Western Australia: West Perth and Australind.
