New corporation, Electrify Canada, will operate 32 charging locations in B.C., Alberta, Ontario and Quebec, as of the second quarter of 2019.

Volkswagen Group Canada has announced the formation of Electrify Canada, a new limited partnership that will build an ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) direct current (DC) charging network across Canada to support EVs from all automotive manufacturers.

“The Canadian electric vehicle market is growing, creating a great need for charging that is fast, convenient and available in key locations,” said Daniel Weissland, President and CEO, Volkswagen Group Canada, Inc. “We are thrilled to be able to offer this service and to take a leadership position in providing this key EV adoption enabler to the Canadian market.”

Initially, each of the planned 32 charging locations will have four chargers on average, offering a range of 150kW to 350kW for the expected longer range, larger battery vehicles coming to market in the future, while also delivering 50kW charging power to support today’s EVs.
