The NRMA Electric Vehicle Fast Charger Network has today launched in Newcastle, one of approximately 40 fast-charging electric vehicle stations to be rolled out across NSW and the ACT.
The Wallsend fast-charger will enable electric vehicle journeys between Sydney and the Hunter region and is a vital step to unlocking Northern NSW for motorists.
It comes on the same day as the NRMA released a policy paper calling on the Federal Government to do more to address the uptake of electric vehicles in Australia.
NRMA Group CEO Rohan Lund said “While the electric vehicle market in Australia is in its infancy, there is an opportunity to develop an ecosystem to support the adoption and rollout of electric vehicles in Australia.”
“As Australia’s largest membership organisation our focus is to keep people moving and the NRMA believes it has a key role to play in leading the transition to electric vehicles,” Mr Lund said.
