Tritium, Evie sign deal for 158 new charging stations in Australia

Manufacturing News

Fast DC electric vehicle charger company Tritium and Evie Networks have announced a deal that will see two new chargers installed at 158 locations around Australia.

The chargers will be new RTM 50 kilowatt models made by Brisbane’s Tritium, and the rollout part-funded by an $8.85 million grant through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency announced last month.

Tritium CEO Jane Hunter said the new charging infrastructure would help alleviate range anxiety and lift the slow rate of EV adoption in Australia.

“We’re very pleased to see federal government support for the rollout of electric vehicle charging infrastructure,” Hunter said in a statement. 

While the e-mobility industry does not require subsidies to support the transition from petrol cars to EVs, it benefits greatly from governments indicating their support for the change via policy statements, which enables public confidence when buying a new car.”

The new chargers are able to add 50 kilometres of range to a vehicle in ten minutes.

Evie installed its first Tritium charging station in late-2019 at Coochin Creek, north of Brisbane.
