Jaguar have released their full interactive map of electric vehicle charging stations across South Africa.

The 54 charging stations, which make up the Jaguar Powerway, are dotted along the Gauteng, Durban and the N1 between Gauteng and Cape Town.

In addition, Cape Town is connected to the Garden Route all the way up to East London.

These have been installed in partnership with electric vehicle charging authority GridCars, making the use of electric and hybrid vehicles easier across the country for both short and longer trips.

“As the rollout of public charging stations intensifies and the dots between existing locations are connected, it’s vital that EV drivers are able to view the status of chargers remotely. This live map makes that possible,” Brian Hastie, network development director, Jaguar Land Rover South Africa, told BusinessTech. 

According to Jaguar, the majority of these are on the public network as 60kWh fast chargers. This means that it will take 20 minutes to charge up to 100km range for a Jaguar I-Pace. A charge from 0 to 80% will take around 72 minutes.

Currently, South Africans can buy the Nissan Leaf, Jaguar I-Pace or BMW i3 electric vehicles.
