Tesla opens first supercharging station in Canada

After putting the finishing touches on its charging network in the U.S., Tesla has begun expanding its Supercharger network into Canada.

The first station, set to open this week on July 17, will be located in Squamish, B.C., along the Sea-to-Sky highway. This will allow Model S drivers to go on zero-emission road trips between Vancouver and Whistler.

Tesla says this is the “first of several” superchargers it plans to open in British Columbia, which will also allow Model S drivers to travel to Whistler from as far south as San Diego, Calif. Tesla’s superchargers are designed primarily for city-to-city travel; they can replenish a Model S anywhere between 20 to 30 minutes and allow for approximately three hours of driving.

As of this moment, Tesla has 102 superchargers open in North America.
