Los Angeles, CA and Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) June 25, 2011
Australian based Club Assist, the leading supplier of mobile, car electric and road services to motoring clubs worldwide, today announced the installation of its first Level II Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station, located at Dandenong, Melbourne.
The charging station is capable of charging an EV from almost flat to full charge in around 4 hours. It uses a JI772 connector, which is fast becoming an industry standard for EV’s, and is compatible with a number of vehicles including Mitsubishi’s i-MiEV, as well as upcoming vehicles including the Nissan Leaf. A number of European car manufacturers also look like adopting this connector including BMW, Mercedes, Peugeot and Citroen.
Club Assist continues to lead the way internationally in the Electric Vehicle arena. Recent attendance at the World’s first formalized EV Charger Technology and Installation Accreditation course in Houston, Texas, affirms Club Assist as a dominant leader offering expertise and professional advice in EV Charging Systems.
Earlier this year, Club Assist installed Australia’s first Level III DC Fast Charger in Adelaide Australia, for Mitsubishi Motors. More Level III DC Fast Chargers are expected to be installed before the end of the year, including one at NRMA’s North Strathfield site, a joint initiative between NRMA, Club Assist and Canada Bay Council.
Additionally, plans are in place to roll-out more Level II chargers available for public use throughout Australia, along with developing a number of EV Roadside Emergency Charging devices to ensure solutions are available as EV’s become more widespread throughout the country.
The Level II EV Charging Station is now available for use during business hours, located at 237-239 Frankston-Dandenong Road, Dandenong.
