Tasmania increases suitability to accommodate electric vehicles

After yesterday’s launch of the Electric Vehicle Fast Charge Network, electric vehicles will now be able to travel nearly everywhere around the state. The Network consist of 14 fast charges located across the state from Geeveston to Scottsdale, and Queenstown to Burnie, as well as the Midlands. The number of charging locations across the state are believed to grow over time as the volume of Electronic Vehicles increase.

“It is clear that transport globally is undergoing a transition towards low emissions vehicles, and we are ensuring we have the infrastructure and networks in place so that Tasmanians, and visitors, alike can benefit.” Said Peter Gutwein MP.

“We will continue to support the uptake of electric vehicles, which is why we have invested around $600,000 to support the establishment of the Network which has stimulated $2.5 million in investment in charging infrastructure through our ChargeSmart Grants Program.”

“Our funding has supported the establishment of 14 fast chargers across Tasmania, as well as 23 workplace and destination chargers.”
