The new 75kW electric vehicle (EV) DC charger is now open at Bungendore and features CCS2 and CHAdeMO plugs.

Providing an additional charging option, whether it be for drivers on their way to and from the South Coast or locals wanting a quick top up while out and about, ActewAGL’s new EV charger is located in the rear carpark of the Bungendore Service Centre on the Kings Highway.

The Bungendore station can simultaneously accommodate two EVs and caters to the full range of EVs in the current market, including Tesla, BYD, Hyundai, Nissan and Mitsubishi. 

Available on the Evie Networks public charging platform, EV drivers are able to use the Evie card or app for a quick and seamless charging experience.

With EV adoption hitting an all-time high in the ACT and thousands of Canberrans regularly embarking on trips to the South Coast, ActewAGL is installing EV charging infrastructure designed to alleviate the potential for range anxiety.

The new Bungendore EV charger is approximately 100km from existing Batemans Bay chargers (located in the car park of the Village Centre) – within the range of EVs available in the current market.

ActewAGL Retail General Manager, Rachael Turner, said, “We’re pleased to bring the first DC charger to Bungendore. With several more stations in planning, we’ll continue to provide accessible and convenient charging solutions to make EV ownership even more attractive.

“With the new ActewAGL DC fast charger being able to provide up to 75km of range in 10 minutes, drivers are in for an efficient and convenient charging stop – whether they’re local and out and about enjoying cafes, shops and galleries, or visitors making their way to and from the coast.”

ActewAGL’s evHub was awarded Winner of the Zero Emissions Early Movers category at the 2023 Climate Choices Business Awards. 

ActewAGL said its evHub will continue to evolve with new offers for home charging products and energy plans tailored for EV owners.
