Rising housing costs, fuel prices, and inflation: it’s no wonder Aussies are turning to apartment dwelling and electric vehicles (EVs) to minimise costs and live within their means. 

The 2021 census revealed that about 1.3 million people now live in flats; an increase of 1.1% compared to 2016. The Guardian says: “Australians are turning to apartment living in record numbers, as the gap between private property rental prices and apartments continues to widen.”

Not only are we seeing a shift in our choice of home in favour of affordability and a rising population growth in Australia’s capital cities leading even more of us to turn to apartment living, but EV use has risen dramatically, too. The Electric Vehicle Council claims that the number of Aussies buying electric cars tripled in the last few years, with 20,665 sold compared to just 6,900 in 2020.

There’s no doubt the transition to EVs is happening – it’s just a case of how rapidly, and for local councils, it’s wise to get ahead of the game.

How Does EVX Work?

At EVX, we offer a robust, cost-effective charging solution for local communities, offering the best smart charging functionality, allowing local councils and governments to provide residents EV charging with centralised management and maintenance provided by us. Our charging is based on consumer parking behaviour and not purely on rapid charge solutions that become inaccessible when needed. Long-term, our charging stations will drive revenue: through advanced data propositions, but ultimately through EV charging alone.
