Ultra-rapid network.

Australia's largest open,
ultra-rapid EV charging network.

Connecting Australia.

We’re committed to sustainable mobility. Our network of ultra-rapid EV chargers will help Australians move around the country without the need for long charging stops.

By the end of 2019, the Chargefox network will have over 100 Fast DC chargers operating. The full public network is growing towards 1000’s of chargers in the years to come. 

Part of that public network of Fast DC chargers is the Chargefox ultra-rapid sites. Chargefox has 4 ultra-rapid charging sites already open, and another 18 in development. All 22 sites will be completed by the end of 2019. These chargers capable of charging up to 350kW and can deliver up to 400km of charge in 15 mins, all powered by 100% renewable energy. 

Using the Queensland Electric Super Highway as part of the extensive fast charging capability on the Chargefox public network, EV drivers will be able to drive from Adelaide to Cairns without lengthy charging stops.

Hit the road, sooner.

How long does it take to charge your EV? Let’s talk facts.

Our ultra-rapid charging stations are open to all modern EVs and can deliver up to 400kms of charge in 15 mins, or 200kms in 8 mins. These chargers are capable of power output of at least 150kW and up to 475kW, which will be the fastest of any charger currently available in Australia.

Keeping up with Australia’s Electricity Management.

We work with AGL to manage electricity demand across Australia. Demand management is all about helping to ensure there’s enough energy to go around during periods of high demand – for example, when extreme weather hits. The Chargefox app allows drivers to opt in to the AGL Managed for You Program, shifting load from peak times to off-peak times. Find out more here.

Charging FAQs

Where will the charging stations be?

On major highways connecting Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, as well as three locations in Western Australia (Perth and north and south) and a station in Tasmania. This will then be expanded to access popular travel destinations such as Gippsland Victoria, and south of Sydney along the coast and down into the snow fields.

How do I use the network?

Simply download the Chargefox app for iPhone or Android, plug in, and start your charging session. The app will let you know in realtime how your charge is going so you don’t need to keep checking back.

How much will it cost to charge my car?

Pricing will vary depending on the model of your car and on the station. Some are free at all times, some charge a per kWh rate. You can see the individual cost of a station when you view each individual location’s details from the map.

How long will it take to charge my car?

Ah, the age old question. The ultra-rapid chargers are capable of adding 400km of range to a modern EV in 15 minutes. Actual charge times vary depending on your car model and the current charge state of your battery.

Charging up to 400km in 15 minutes? Is that possible?

Yes, absolutely! New EVs are supporting higher and higher charging speeds, and there are cars available in Australia that are capable of charging this quickly.

What is security like while my car’s charging?

Firstly, the charger locks while charging, so nobody can disconnect it from your car. Secondly, our sites are always well lit, and are next to cafés and facilities with long opening times (24/7 where possible). We aim to make all our locations safe for families to stop and charge their car, even at night. All sites will also soon have CCTV cameras installed for added security.

What plug types are supported?

All modern electric vehicles with CCS2 or CHAdeMO plugs can charge at our sites. Tesla drivers can use a CHAdeMO adapter to charge their vehicles.

What renewable energy will the sites use?

All our sites are backed by 100% green power. In many cases we also add solar and batteries on site to facilitate charging via solar energy.
