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 12 locations in Perth and the South West with publicly accessible electric vehicle fast-charging DC stations supported by the Chargefox network.

As an RAC member, you can now save 20%* when charging your electric vehicles at any Chargefox ultra-rapid site in Australia.
