The GridCars National Charging Network

Connecting major cities along some of South Africa’s busiest highways

Our extensive national network of EV fast-chargers has been a game changer for EV drivers as it makes long-distance travel possible within South Africa.
At the end of 2018 GridCars, in partnership with Jaguar, established the foundation for the future of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in South Africa through the deployment of 82 public charging stations nationwide. Since then, through our partnerships with various players in the industry, including OEMs, GridCars has effectively grown the national charge point network. Our most recent partnership with Audi includes four 150kW DC super-charging stations as part of a national roll-out of 70 new EV charge connectors across 33 sites.

About Us

Since our establishment in 2009, GridCars has become renowned as an independent authority on Electric Vehicle Charging Service Equipment (EVSE) and Charging Station Infrastructure and Management Systems. GridCars was also a founding member of the Electric Vehicle Industry Association. Today, almost a decade later, we continue to play a leading role in building the EV and eMobility industry in South Africa through engagement with various players in the industry, including OEMs, property managers and traditional fuel companies, in order to effectively grow the national Charge Point network. In September 2017 Solareff (Pty) Ltd, acquired a 75% stake in GridCars. The Solareff investment provides a significant boost to the GridCars balance sheet – providing the critical mass for us to scale up quickly and move far beyond what was possible as a small start-up enterprise.
