Electrify Canada Network

Mon Jul 23, 2018 6:53 pm

This topic is started to track the development of EC's network in Canada, to complement the "Electrify America Network" topic for the U.S. Via GCC:
Volkswagen Group Canada forms Electrify Canada to install network of ultra-fast electric vehicle chargers
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2018/07/20180723-vwcanada.html

Volkswagen Group Canada has formed Electrify Canada, a new company that will build an ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) direct current (DC) charging network across Canada. Volkswagen expects the network to be operational starting in the second quarter of 2019. . . .

The initial Electrify Canada plan includes the installation of 32 EV charging sites near major highways and in major metro areas in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. Each charging site will have four chargers on average and use the non-proprietary DC fast charging technologies (CCS and CHAdeMO).

Charging power will range from 150kW to 350kW for the expected longer range, larger battery vehicles coming to market and will also deliver 50kW charging power to support today’s EVs from all automotive manufacturers. . . .

If that's at 30-32A it's a good deal.
