Australia’s largest public electric vehicle (EV) charging network has announced its plan to grow its ultra-rapid sites to more than 100.
Chargefox has revealed the target locations for 22 sites in the first phase of its fast EV charging network, connecting Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane with additional sites in Western Australia and Tasmania, delivering 450 kilometres of range.
This follows on from C&I’s report last week announcing Chargefox’s fifth site in Victoria.
Marty Andrews, Chargefox CEO, said, “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.”
“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,” Andrews continued.
The next 17 locations in the first phase of the Chargefox ultra-rapid network include:
NSW: Gundagai, Sydney, Ballina, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie, Karuah, Cooma, Shell Cove and Goulburn
VIC: Ballarat, Moe and Horsham
TAS: Central Tasmania
SA: Greater Adelaide and Keith
WA: West Perth and Australind
As well as the 22 ultra-rapid site locations, Chargefox manages over 1,000 plugs across 450 locations, and has processed more than 50,000 charging sessions for EV drivers in the past two years.
