With electric vehicles becoming more popular throughout Australia, the nation's transportation infrastructure is getting a big overhaul. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Queensland Electric Super Highway.
From what we can gather, this is the longest electric superhighway in a single state, anywhere in the world. According the the qld.gov.au the Queensland Electric Super Highway hosts 31 fast-charging hubs in total, allowing locals and visitors alike to get around between key Queensland hotspots like Cairns, Brisbane, Toowoomba, and Coolangatta. Yeah Coolangatta… How cool is that!
The first phase of the Queensland Electric Super Highway installed 18 fast-charging sites in total, and Phase 2 has introduced a subsequent set of 13 more in locations like Ipswich, Port Douglas, Mt Larcom, North Lakes, Gin Gin, Forest Glen, and Ayr. It’s never made more sense to switch to electric in Queensland. You don’t need a big budget for a high range Tesla or Porsche Taycan either. A lower range Renault Zoè or MG ZS are now practical choices for some of the most remote areas in Queensland thanks to the Queensland Electric Super Highway.
This is great for tourism too, EV tourism that is. It’s so simple for EV owners to cruise along the Queensland coastline, stopping off at some of Australia's most scenic destinations along the way. With range anxiety in Queensland, quickly becoming a thing of the past.
What’s the catch? Well, it’s probably greener charging on the Queensland Electric Super Highway network than at home. All Charging Station on the Queensland Electric Super Highway network use of green energy, which is covered either by offsets or direct green energy credits, resulting in a completely carbon-neutral, pollutant-free form of transportation. Yes Queensland….
