New Electric Charging Hub at Bus Station
A new electric vehicle charging hub has opened next to Central Bus Station.
The eight fast charging stations within a new dedicated electric vehicle (EV) parking area is adjacent to the Central Bus Station, off Franklin Street.
A further 11 charging stations will be installed in the Adelaide Central Market UPark by the end of November.
In a Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partnership, the City of Adelaide and Government of South Australia have collaborated with SA Power Networks, Mitsubishi and Tesla to offer super-fast direct current (DC) charging services.
The Electric Vehicle Charging Hub (the Hub) on Franklin Street, charges an Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to 80% capacity in under 30 minutes.
The Hub also houses Tesla Superchargers, which are the fastest charging solution in Australia, providing 270km for Model S and Model X vehicles in just 30 minutes.
The Tesla superchargers are the first of a network of 50 charging points across South Australia, and form part of the agreement between the State Government and Tesla to deliver the world's largest lithium ion battery, to be built at Jamestown.
This addition also allows Tesla owners to travel from Brisbane all the way through to Adelaide.
