Mitsubishi Motors Australia has unveiled the very first public EV fast charging unit in Australia.
The unit has been installed in front of the company’s Adelaide, South Australia head office and is designed to offer the convenience of a fast charge facility for drivers of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric vehicle.
The FCU is an Aker Wade unit installed by Club Assist in Australia and is powered by 100 per cent accredited green electricity provided by AGL Energy Limited.
Normally, the i-MiEV is recharged on a standard 15 amp household power point over a seven hour period. However, the fast charge unit can recharge up to 80 per cent of an i-MiEV’s battery in 30 minutes, or provide an extra-quick top-up of around 50 per cent in just 15 minutes.
