The NSW government has pledged $5 million to invest in fast-charging infrastructure and charging points in car parks.
Transport minister Andrew Constance said the government wanted people to be able to take long car trip in electric vehicles.
“More people are embracing electric and hybrid vehicles and we need to do our part to ensure we have the infrastructure in place so that people are confident to use these vehicles right across the state,” Mr Constance said.
“That’s why we’re planning fast-charging points for major regional corridors including the Newell, Great Western, New England, Pacific and Princes Highways and the Hume Motorway.”
The government is now on the hunt for a partner to co-invest and deliver premium coverage and charging.
