Up to 400km in 15 minutes
We’re building a network of hyper-rapid (300kW) charging stations as EV infrastructure needs grow and the demand for faster and higher power charging increases.
Hyper-rapid charging network
The 300kW hyper-rapid charging stations are the fastest publicly available EV chargers in New Zealand, adding up to 400km in 15 minutes for some vehicles*. Each station is capable of charging three vehicles simultaneously, two CCS vehicles at up to 300kW and one CHAdeMO vehicle at up to 62kW, which will significantly reduce queuing and wait times.
At the moment, you’ll find the hyper-rapid charging stations at Bombay and Taupo. With the support of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) and the Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund, over the next 18 months we’re building hyper-rapid sites in Auckland, Bulls, Christchurch, Dunedin, Kaiwaka, Rotorua, Tauranga, Queenstown, Waikato, and Wellington.
50kW chargers will continue to be indispensable to our network, but quick ‘Stop and Go’ hyper-rapid charging sites along the main routes will remove an extra barrier of uptake and help accelerate EV adoption, ultimately reducing household transport emissions and helping New Zealand transition to a low carbon future.

How long will it take
to charge my EV?
At a ChargeNet DC rapid charger, you can usually expect to add about 100 km range in 15 – 30 minutes. The two main variables are: how many kWh you want, and what type of connection your EV will use. You can stop a charge at any time if you need to get going.
