The Transport Agency believes it is important that electric vehicle drivers feel confident to roam across New Zealand’s state highways.

The following maps are a view of the current state of the nationwide network.
According to charging stations operators, there will soon be the following coverage across New Zealand:
If you know of public charging infrastructure, not included in our maps, that meets the requirements above, and services our national, regional and arterial state highways, contact the EV programme with details.
The charging stations must also be located within reasonable proximity of the roads in question.
The Transport Agency strongly encourages investors to work together to achieve connected journeys along national, regional and arterial roads.
The One network road classification system can be used as a tool to identify priority journeys, so that the roads that deliver the greatest benefits are addressed first.
This system takes into account the quantity of people and goods that move along the road and has been jointly developed by road controlling authorities. It is a prioritisation system that also considers the social and economic value of a road.
Please contact the EV programme if you would like to discuss this further.
