Australia: ChargePoint plug-in servo for electric cars in Adelaide hills

AS the number of pure electric and plug-in hybrid cars slowly grows, a Hills business is installing two charging stations.

Mitsubishi has put 150 $50,000 i-MiEV pure electric cars on the road in Australia – mostly to government and large fleet companies – with Nissan adding the Leaf in June and Holden promising the Volt range-extender electric car this year.

The Organic Market and Cafe in Stirling and electric vehicle infrastructure company ChargePoint aim to help extend the range of electric cars by providing charging stations outside the cafe.

ChargePoint already operates the solid-oxide fuel cell charging station in the Central Market carpark.

Chief executive James Brown said the new stations extended the potential range of electric vehicles.

“When fully charged, electric vehicles can cover more than 100km, but they expend more energy when climbing hills, so having public charging stations outside the city perimeter is a smart move,” he said.
