Chargefox has received a $1 million grant from the Victorian Government to fund the installation of the world’s latest technology for electric vehicle charging stations.
The ultra-rapid stations will be capable of charging at up to 350kW, which can potentially add over 400km of range to an electric vehicle in 15 minutes. They will be the fastest of any charger currently deployed in Australia.
The funding will be used to install multiple stations across two different sites, located in Euroa and Barnawartha North near Wodonga.
Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily d’Ambrosio said today:
“Electric vehicles are the future, and we’re doing everything possible to make them a real option for Victorians.”
With many manufacturers bringing new electric vehicles coming to market in the next year, including Jaguar Land Rover, Hyundai and Audi, Chargefox hopes these stations will help Victorians feel more comfortable choosing to buy an EV as their next car, and to take the opportunity to tour regional Victoria as a result.
