VW electric charger network spreads to Canada



Mirroring its Electrify America network of public fast chargers for electric cars in the U.S., Volkswagen announced Thursday that it will set up a similar network in Canada—called Electrify Canada, logically enough.

Electrify Canada plans to set up 32 DC fast-charging stations in major Canadian cities and along highways across the country.

Like Electrify America's stations, each will have several fast chargers, with an average of four chargers per site.

The stations will include a mix of 150-kw and 350-kw fast chargers, along with some Level 2 chargers that will support existing electric cars that don't have fast-charging capacity.

Sounds to me like VW has taken a page from Musk's book - install a charging network so your EVs can travel most places. Of the automakers I think VW has the most to gain by going electric and dumping ICE as soon as possible, if for no reason other than to get rid of the stink made by their diesel engine cheating.

Maybe someday, the network will spread to NJ, where our politicians will steal the money for something else.
