RAA Chief Executive Officer Nick Reade said construction of the RAA Charge network was progressing well.
“RAA is proud to play a pivotal role in opening crucial regional routes in our State this summer, making popular tourist destinations more accessible for EV drivers.
“Once complete in 2024, the charging network will cover 140 locations with over 530 charging points, with 98% of them less than 200 km apart, making range anxiety a thing of the past for EV drivers.
“South Australia currently has over 5,000 battery electric vehicles on its roads and this number is steadily increasing each year.
“Through RAA Charge, we’re ensuring the necessary infrastructure is in place to support the fast-growing demand for EVs, so potential buyers can be confident about the available charging options,” Mr. Reade said.
EV drivers can download the Chargefox app to locate their nearest charger, initiate charging and complete payment.
The RAA Charge network is being delivered with the support of a $12.35 million grant from the Government of South Australia.
