Electric Vehicle Parking

Park And Charge Your Electric Car in Adelaide

We have 28 electric vehicle charging stations at our UParks around the city.

Please note: As there are limited spots, you may not always be able to charge your car on arrival at the car park.

Using the Charging Stations

To use our 22kW fast chargers (all car parks with EV charging – except UPark Grote) you must bring your own cable with a Type 2 (Mennekes) plug.

At UPark Grote Street, you must bring a cable with a conventional (AU/NZ) wall plug to use the 2 x 15-Amp EV power points available.

Availability

The EV parking system has occupancy sensors and overhead indicator to show you available car parks.

A red light means the space is occupied, an orange light means a space for an electric vehicle only, and a green light means a space is available.
