Premier Peter Gutwein has officially opened the state's electric charge network in Launceston.

The network will ensure mid-range electric vehicles can travel to almost any point within the state where there is a bitumen road.

Tasmania now has a dozen 50 kw chargers in Burnie, Devonport, Scottsdale, St Helens, Swansea, Derwent Bridge, Queenstown, Kempton, New Norfolk, Geeveston, Hobart and Launceston.

There are also two ultra-rapid 350 kw charger locations in Campbell Town and Kings Meadows.

Electric Highway Tasmania Managing Director Clive Attwater says the opening of the network isn't just a win for the environment, but also a significant development for the state's tourism.

“Already we see interstate drivers using the network and on social media mainland EV drivers are discussing their planned tours of Tasmania. Green tourism is the future,” Mr Attwater said.

It's hoped more fast chargers will be introduced in the future to further increase the coverage, convenience and capacity of the network.
