Genesis teams up with Bangalay Luxury Villas to provide EV charging

New EV charger now available for guests at South Coast tourist hot spot

Genesis has teamed up with Bangalay Luxury Villas to make electric vehicle touring a bit easier, installing an EV charger on site for guests.

Bangalay Luxury Villas, described as the “epitome of luxury” hospitality, is located at Shoalhaven Heads on the south coast of NSW, boasting views of the golf course and close proximity to wineries, Kangaroo Valley, Berry and right on the doorstep of Seven Mile Beach.

There are also some great driving roads in this region, including through Kangaroo Valley and up to the Southern Highlands, through Jamberoo.

With the installation of an EV charger at the resort, it brings peace of mind to electric vehicle drivers interested in touring the area. Speaking about the pair-up, Connal Yan, head of Genesis Motors Australia, said:

“At Genesis Motors we believe that every drive deserves to be a discovery, which is why we are thrilled to join hands with Bangalay Luxury Villas to elevate the convenience of eco-travel and support our shared direction as we move towards sustainability.”

Details on the charger in terms of power output and power source haven’t been mentioned, but it is now available for guests to use. Karen Dempster, from South Coast Tourism Industry Association Green Travel Experience, said:

“Tourism operators are leading the charge in supplying EV charging infrastructure to road trippers. Wineries, accommodation providers and resorts such as Bangalay Luxury Villas are all popular destinations for EV drivers travelling to the South Coast due to their EV Charging Infrastructure. The South Coast is a popular road trip destination, and we welcome further investment in EV Charging Infrastructure to our key destinations.”

Genesis currently offers three fully electric vehicles in its fleet, including the GV60, GV70 Electrified, and G80 Electrified.
