Today, Suncor Energy’s wholly owned brand Petro-Canada, officially launched Canada’s Electric Highway DC-Fast charging network that connects the east and west coast with high-speed electric vehicle chargers.
This network is quite possibly the longest non-proprietary charging network in the world. And, it was built in less than a year. For the electric car owners in Canada, this means they can now travel from coast-to-coast as quickly and conveniently as they would have in a traditional car.
The Petro-Canada network spans from coast to coast with more than 50 locations across the country, connecting EV drivers in way that was not possible before. This significant achievement was made in part by funding through the Natural Resources Canada Electric Vehicle Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative, and was attended by the CEO of Suncor, as well as the president of Electric Vehicle Society.
