10 July 2012 – Holden will use the Better Place electric car recharging network for its new long-range Volt electric car.

Holden Energy and Environment director Richard Marshall said that while Volt could take less than six hours to charge using a 240V 10A charge through a regular household outlet, Better Place
could shave that time to less than four hours.

Better Place will develop a number of membership packages for Volt customers including the installation of a “Charge Spot” unit at home or work, and zero emissions charging provided through the purchase of renewable energy or 100 per cent government-certified renewable energy certificates.

Better Place will also install a Volt Charge Spot for participating Holden Volt dealers to enable them to charge their demonstration vehicles when they arrive later in the year.
