Electrify Canada Arrives in British Columbia with Ultra-Fast Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

The electric vehicle DC fast charging network will open upwards of nine stations in the province this year

Toronto, ON (June 11, 2020) – Electrify Canada charges forward with its national expansion, announcing nine new electric vehicle (EV) fast charging station locations in British Columbia projected to open throughout 2020.  The first station, located in the city of Merritt, marked the company’s official debut in western Canada when it opened to the public in May.

Electrify Canada is working to provide a convenient and accessible charging experience for EV drivers, and within B.C., the stations will be positioned along the Trans-Canada Highway and Highways 97 and 99. As various restrictions lift and it may become more feasible for Canadians to travel, these new EV charging stations gives drivers the range confidence to travel to some of the province’s most popular attractions, including the Nicola Valley, Banff National Park, Discovery Trail and Riverside Park Beach.

“British Columbia has been at the forefront of the electric mobility movement and we’re excited that electric vehicle drivers in B.C. will now be able to benefit from the Electrify Canada network,” said Robert Barrosa, chief operating officer at Electrify Canada. “Our expansion to the west coast is another strong step in our journey to provide high quality fast-charging options to the ever-growing Canadian EV community.”

Planned Electrify Canada charging locations for British Columbia include the following:

Electrify Canada opened its first ultra-fast EV charging station to drivers in Toronto in the fall of 2019 and soon after announced five additional locations planned in Ontario. Each Electrify Canada location offers four or more chargers and power levels ranging from 50kW up to 350kW, offering the fastest charging possible for EVs in Canada today. Drivers can access the stations by downloading the Electrify Canada app or using their credit card at the station. The newly announced British Columbia locations are among 32 locations across four provinces planned for the company’s first phase of development.
