Whangarei becomes NZ’s first city with fast charger for electric cars – National News | TVNZ

Moves are underway to boost the low number of electric vehicles on our roads, with the country’s first fast charger available from today.

The uptake of electric cars has been slow, with fewer than 200 on the nation’s roads.

It’s believed that’s because of high price tags and fears of getting stranded with nowhere to charge up.

Electric car owner Steve West says it has been a real issue.

“If we want to take a road trip, if we want to drive to Whangarei for the weekend, we have no choice but to take a petrol car and burn fossil fuels,” Mr West said.

But that could now change with the country’s first ultra fast electric charger in Whangarei.

For the foreseeable future the charger will be free to use, with the fast charger capable of providing 80 per cent charge capacity within 30 minutes.
