Holden installs Volt charging post at its headquarters
Installed by supplier ChargePoint, the unit provides owners of the Holden Volt, which reaches Australian dealers later this year, with access to charging in the city. Holden and ChargePoint have also installed six units at the manufacturer’s proving ground in Lang Lang, to be used by its employees working on the Volt programme.
Holden’s Executive Director Engineering Greg Tyus, responsible for preparing the Volt for Australian customers, said: ‘Our engineering team is doing the final validation work around the launch of Volt in Australia. We’re really excited to have our first cars on the road and we’re looking forward to announcing more details to customers soon.
ChargePoint chief executive officer James Brown added that the new market would require a supporting infrastructure: ‘In the coming years more and more of the world’s most respected car manufacturers will head down the EV path and ChargePoint will be there to ensure use of the best possible technology to support the charging requirements of these vehicles.’
