A few interesting angles ...
  • The Round Australia Electric Highway is rated at an available charge rate of 100km/h+ limited only by the charge rate of the vehicle and its cable.
  • Every type of electric vehicle can use the route. They just need an adapter to a standard Australian 3 phase electrical outlet, which the route is based on !
  • As of May 2018 the Round Australia Electric Highway is complete around Australia to 400km max spacing, and only 4 sites off 300km max spacing (200 average). The Red Centre route is 100% driveable, with slow charging still at 2 points, and full completion by the end of 2018.
  • Close to 17,000km of route has been mapped, charging access discussed with every site, and outlets provided where not existing. Over 10,000km of outback interstate routes are based on the Australian 32 amp 3 phase outlet, including the Nullarbor, Stuart Highway and Top End where there are very few other charger types.

Great to see various electric vehicles taking on the Around Australia journey, the Kimberley region of WA has a very low population with large distances between settlements that can make the driving an EV appear very difficult, Horizon power have stepped up and installed 3 phase charge points at suitable locations to ease the range anxiety.
