A number of stations on the Electric Highway are out of service. Due to a global supply issue of parts, attending to these issues are taking longer than expected. Please contact Chargefox direct on 1300 518 038 for urgent tech support or via the Chargefox app for station updates. We apologies for any inconvenience caused.

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 16 locations in Western Australia which includes 12 ultra-rapid or fast charging options supported by the Chargefox network.

As an RAC member, you can now save 20%* when charging your electric vehicles at any RAC Electric Highway® location (including DC ultra-rapid charge, DC fast charge and AC slow charge) and any Chargefox ultra-rapid site in Australia.
