The 25% gap comes following a $20 million-dollar announcement from the NSW Government earlier this week, with the state government pledging to cover up to 75% towards the purchase of four approved destination AC EV chargers.

MG Motor Australia will cover the remaining 25% gap for successful regional NSW applicants who have purchased an MG ChargeHub. 

The grants will be made available to eligible destinations across regional NSW include motels, wineries, cafes, restaurants, natural attractions, visitor information centres, museums and zoos.

Peter Ciao, CEO for MG Motor Australia and New Zealand, said this is a positive step and builds on what the company has already been doing in Australia to help promote EV travel locally.

“We want to grow local economies and support small businesses in areas impacted by COVID, bushfires and floods and that’s why we’re filling the gap in cost for our MG EV ChargeHub in conjunction with the grant," Mr Ciao said.

MG's offer comes into effect immediately and will be in place as long as the NSW Government subsidies are live or until those funds are exhausted.

For destinations, MG's ChargeHub is priced at $1,990 for a 7Kw option or $2,090 for the 11Kw option - both excluding installation.

Under the terms of the NSW Government grants, destinations are expected to contribute to the cost of installing the charging facilities.

MG notes its ChargeHubs on offer are manufacturer agnostic, which means they will charge any EV vehicle that has a type 2 chargepoint, including Tesla.

Data from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries 'VFACTS' report revealed MG's own ZS EV was Australia’s second best-selling EV last year behind the Tesla Model 3.

"When we launched the MG ZS EV in late 2020, we offered the model at a price that delivered great value to customers which has changed the conversation about pricing of electric vehicles in Australia," Mr Ciao said.

“We have achieved our ambition of delivering value and driving discussion - now, we take the next step by supplying charging hardware that can be used by many electric vehicle owners in Australia.”
