A full list of locations for an ultra-fast charging network that includes sites on the edges of cities and stretches from northern Queensland to Adelaide, Tasmania and Perth has been revealed by Evie Networks.
The first of a 42-strong string of ultra-fast chargers that can add driving range at a rate of up to 350km per 15 minutes – depending on the vehicle – will open at Coochin Creek on the Sunshine Coast in coming weeks.
It will be followed by nine more locations, that are currently under development, by the end of Q1 2020, with chargers spread approximately every 150km in addition to city fringe locations.
“Spacing is important,” head of sales and marketing Geoff Brady tells The Driven.
“When you look at the eastern seaboard, we space at around 150km because it’s important we design a network for all vehicles, not just big battery Teslas,” he says.
“That will cater for all the vehicles on the market to get around.”
The locations, which include 8 in Queensland, 14 in NSW, 2 in the ACT, 8 in Victoria, 4 in South Australia, and 3 in both Tasmania and Western Australia, will compliment rather than compete with existing locations being rolled out by other network providers such as Chargefox.
“We tried to avoid duplicating existing coverage…it’s about filling the gaps,” says Brady.
The first ten locations to roll out will include Sutherland, Yass, Taree and Tarcutta in NSW; Seymour, Mulgrave and Werribee in Victoria; Noarlunga in South Australia; and Coochin Creek and Townsville in Queensland.
