Just before Christmas Evie Networks opened its 100th electric car fast charging site in Toowoomba, QLD and confirmed it hopes to have 300 sites by the end of 2023 with a presence in every capital state and city.

This is an impressive aim for this year considering it took Evie 3 years to open the first 100 sites, after starting at Coochin Creek (on Bruce Highway 60 kilometres north of Brisbane) in late 2019.

Personally I’ve used 8 Evie rapid chargers during my electric car trips so far: Sutton Forest, Casula Mall, Tarcutta, Avenel, BP Northpoint, Taylors Lakes, Warrenheip and Red Rooster Vermont.

It is unclear how many fast charging sites Evie’s biggest competitor Chargefox has because there haven’t been any updates to the Chargefox blog since mid-2022 when it was purchased by Australian Motoring Services (RACV, NRMA, RACQ, RAC, RAA and RACT).

Evie Networks’ CEO Chris Mills said:

“The launch of our 100th site is a milestone that celebrates access to more public charging, enabling more EV journeys across the nation.”

“Our 100th site at Toowoomba caps off an incredible year of milestones for the Evie team. On the 14th of December, we celebrated 2 million kWh sold on our network and two days later, we exceeded 90K individual charging sessions across our network.”

Evie’s ambition is to ensure that no Australian is more than 5km away from an EV fast
charger. For me they’ve already achieved that with 2 Evie locations recently opened within 4km of my house in Sydney.
