MG is encouraging local EV adoption by encouraging the purchase of its MG ChargeHub.
In response to a grant from New South Wales for the installation of electric vehicle chargers aimed at boosting regional tourism, MG announced earlier this month that it would cover the cost difference for successful grant applicants.
The grant process provides 75 percent of the funding to the Regional Council for the installation of four AC destination chargers. The chargers are intended for installation in places such as motels, wineries, food stores and natural attractions.
The NSW government grant will also cover 50 percent of the two-year charger software subscription.
MG’s 7kW ChargeHub costs $ 1990 excluding installation, while its 11kW unit costs $ 2090. These can also be purchased directly from MG dealerships.
This incentive scheme is in addition to MG’s hotel subsidy scheme announced last year.
The Chinese automaker has announced that it is offering up to 3,000 discounted EV AC chargers for regional three-star hotels and resorts across the country.
Danny Lenartick, MG Australia’s product director, said: “The reason for this strategy is that those who drive EVs are offered access to regional or rural areas which they think they cannot afford in electric vehicles – and now they can,” said Danny Lenartic, MG Australia’s product director.
