In its efforts to pioneer ultra-fast public charging in South Africa, Audi has installed the very first DC 200kW ultra-fast charger in South Africa, which is installed at the largest shopping mall ever built in a single phase – Mall of Africa. The solar photovoltaic (PV) system installed at Mall of Africa is one of the largest of its kind in the Southern hemisphere, ideal for when loadshedding hits.

The newly added 43 chargers are spread across the provinces as follows:
