BIG NEWS from Tesla Motors about the Supercharger Network in Canada!
“Tesla the California-based carmaker of the award-winning Model S electric premium sedan and Model X SUV, is heavily investing in the expansion of its Eastern Canada Supercharger network with the opening of six new stations in Quebec and Ontario.
Just ahead of summer, the Grimsby Supercharger, which opened last week, now enables travel between west New York, Niagara Falls, and into Toronto and Detroit. The station is open 24/7 and free for Tesla Model S and Model X drivers.
Besides Grimsby, Tesla plans to open additional Ontario stations in Huntsville and Parry Sound and new Quebec stations in Magog, Montreal, and Riviere du Loup this summer. These stations will join the company’s existing nine Supercharger stations in Eastern Canada creating a convenient and seamless charging experience for Canadian Tesla owners.
The Tesla Supercharger adds up to 200 km of range in as little as 20 minutes of charging. Superchargers are designed for city to city travel, allowing Tesla owners to travel for about three hours, take a quick break, and get back on the road. Tesla currently has more than 600 Supercharger stations and over 3,000 connectors worldwide. A full map of these stations can be found here.
Tesla Superchargers allow Model S and Model X owners to travel for free between cities along well-traveled highways. The Tesla Supercharger is substantially more powerful than any charging technology to date, providing up to 120 kilowatts of power and nearly 200 km of range in 20 minutes.
Supercharger stations are strategically placed to allow owners to drive from station to station with minimal stops. Stations are located near amenities like roadside diners, cafes, and shopping centers so roadtrippers can stop for a quick meal and have their Model S and Model X charged by the time they’re done.
Tesla Motors’ (NASDAQ: TSLA) goal is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy with a full range of increasingly affordable electric cars. California-based Tesla designs and manufactures electric vehicles as well as renewable energy storage. Tesla has delivered more than 120,000 electric vehicles to customers worldwide.”
