Chargefox, Australia’s largest electric vehicle (EV) charging network, has further expanded with the opening of its sixth ultra-rapid charging station in Sydney – the first in New South Wales. Located at Zetland’s East Village Shopping Centre, the charging station is capable of delivering up to 400km of charge in 15 mins (or 200km of charge in 8 mins), backed up by 100% renewable energy.
This is the first of 9 ultra-rapid charging stations that Chargefox has planned for NSW, all built with investment from NRMA. It adds to the already expansive network of 47 fast charging stations operated by Chargefox in the state. Fast charging stations are capable of adding up to 60 kms of range in 15 minutes.
When combined with the current 25 fast chargers operated by NRMA (plus an additional 15 to be rolled out before the end of the year), NSW is fast becoming one of Australia’s best serviced states for EV drivers.
Chargefox recently announced their plans to roll out an additional 50 ultra rapid charging sites around Australia and revealed the locations of the next 16 sites they have in development. The Chargefox ultra-rapid network will soon connect Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Cairns. Additional sites in Western Australia and Tasmania are also planned.
