A company known as Chargefox will be provided with $6 million to help it set up 21 ultra-rapid charging stations for electric vehicles along major driving routes from Brisbane to Adelaide, including around Sydney and Melbourne, and separately in Western Australia.

The first of these charging stations will be set up at Euroa in Victoria and Barnawartha North, outside Albury Wodonga on the New South Wales-Victorian border.

A statement from Energy Minister Angus Taylor said the money was being provided through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and all the charging stations would be powered by renewable energy.

The total cost of the network of charging stations is projected to be $15 million, with stations positioned not more than 200 kilometres apart.

The technology used at the stations would mean that a 15-minute charge could provide enough power for a vehicle to run 400 kilometres. Currently, charging takes several hours.

All electric vehicle owners will be able to use the charging stations which will support all models sold in the country.

The statement said the network would help open up inter-state travel and regional communities to the potential of electric vehicles.

Electric vehicles can lower transport costs, enhance fuel security, and increasingly create more sustainable cities with less pollution and better health outcomes for our communities, the statement added.
