If you've got an electric car, we've made it easier for you to go further. RAC built the very first Electric Highway® in Australia, so you can charge up your car while driving from Perth to Augusta – and back. The RAC Electric Highway® features 11 locations in Perth and the South West with publicly accessible electric vehicle fast-charging DC stations supported by the Chargefox network.

Using the RAC Electric Highway®

The Highway is open to all electric vehicle users in Western Australia and is now part of Chargefox, Australia’s largest EV charging network. To use the RAC Electric Highway® charging stations, simply download the free Chargefox app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store and follow the instructions below to charge.

Alternatively, if using the app is not an option, see instructions here for requesting and charging with a Chargefox RFID card.

    How long does it take to charge?

    DC fast charge

    0% to 100% in ~30 minutes

    AC slow charge

    0% to 100% in 4 to 8 hours

    Charging time depends on the size of the battery pack and method of charging, DC or AC. Please refer to your vehicle manual to seek clarification about charging times. 2 Ultra-rapid charge stations will be added to the network shortly.

    Why we did it

    The RAC has spent more than 115 years working for safer, easier and more sustainable ways for our members to get around their community. The RAC Electric Highway® supports our sustainable mobility agenda and work in reducing carbon dioxide emissions from cars in WA.

    The RAC Electric Highway® charging stations have been funded by RAC but are owned and maintained by local governments.
