MG Motor Australia and New Zealand will capitalise on its position as a leader in the electric vehicle space, pioneering an exciting new initiative that will see the roll-out of accessible charging infrastructure across Australia.
Over the next three years, up to 3,000 electric vehicle charging stations will be deployed to support local businesses across Australia, including hotels and resorts, which represents a multi-million-dollar investment by MG Motor.
The state-of-the-art wallbox chargers will be compatible with all electric vehicles fitted with a Type 2 charging plug system - not just MG vehicles.
Peter Ciao, CEO for MG Motor Australia and New Zealand, said: “In Australia, purchase price is the biggest barrier to adoption of electric vehicles, closely followed by concern at the lack of public charging infrastructure.
“When we launched the MG ZS EV in late 2020, we offered the model at a price that delivered great value to customers. This has, in turn, changed the conversation about pricing of electric vehicles in Australia.
“We have achieved our ambition of delivering value and driving discussion. Now, we take the next step by supplying charging hardware that can be used by many electric vehicle owners in Australia.
“This initiative underlines MG Motor’s commitment to the Australian community which has supported us.”
The new EV charging network – based on MG’s own award-winning Aurora charge hub – will be donated to operators spanning the entire country.
These chargers will not only enhance each venue’s customer experience, but will also reassure electric vehicle owners that they can drive around Australia with ease.
The only cost to a successful applicant will be installation, and MG's team of EV experts will be available to advise on the most cost-effective method to suit each application.
MG Motor has opened applications to prospective venue operators.
Interested parties are invited to submit their expressions of interest at the official MG website https://mgelectric.com.au/, with the first 300-1000 to be delivered within 12 months.
