Why EV Up?

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) estimates that there will be 670,000 EVs on the road in Australia by 2025 and that over 7,000 DC fast chargers will be required to support them. As of mid-2019 there’s a grand total of 71 – we have a long way to go!

As early electric vehicle adopters, the EV Up team is acutely aware of Australia’s slow implementation of charging infrastructure compared to other developed countries. There are places we simply can’t go without long waits to charge on slow chargers or time wasting detours.

EV Up wants to change that by installing rapid electric vehicle chargers in easy to access, cost effective sites across Australia, opening up routes for other early adopters and giving potential electric vehicle owners confidence that they won’t be left stranded.

We are actively seeking investment to install more chargers and develop the EV Up experience for our customers. If you’d like to join us in the electric vehicle revolution, let’s talk – [email protected]
