The GridCars and Jaguar Powerway
Connecting major cities along some of South Africa’s busiest highways
Through our partnership with Jaguar Land Rover SA, we have successfully established a national EV charging highway – the Jaguar Powerway – consisting of 22 charging stations along the N3 between Gauteng and Durban and the N1 between Gauteng and Cape Town. Cape Town is connected to the Garden Route with a series of charging stations along the N2 all the way to East London. The majority of charging stations on the public network are 60kWh fast chargers.

Since our establishment in 2009, GridCars have 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 vehicle manufacturers and various other stakeholders.
In September 2017 GridCars became part of JSE listed company Alviva Holdings Ltd, when it’s subsidiary, 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.
