Adelaide charged up as hub for electric vehicles


Adelaide is now a hub for South Australia’s electric vehicle charging network with eight new fast charging stations now located within a new dedicated electric vehicle parking area, adjacent to the Central Market precinct.

A further 11 charging stations will be installed in the Adelaide Central Market UPark by the end of November.

In a Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partnership, the City of Adelaide and Government of South Australia have collaborated with SA Power Networks, Mitsubishi and Tesla to offer super-fast direct current (DC) charging services.

The Electric Vehicle Charging Hub (the Hub) on Franklin Street, will fully charge a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV providing a 100 per cent electric driving range of 52 kilometres in 30 minutes.

The Hub will also house Tesla Superchargers, which are the fastest charging solution in Australia, providing 270km for Model S and Model X vehicles in just 30 minutes. The superchargers are the first of a network of 50 charging points across South Australia, and form part of the agreement between the State Government and Tesla to deliver the world's largest lithium ion battery, to be built at Jamestown.

This addition also allows Tesla owners to travel from Brisbane all the way through to Adelaide.
