Tesla has installed and opened their first Supercharger station in Canada. The new 6 stall Supercharger is in Squamish, British Columbia, just about halfway between Vancouver, BC and Whistler, BC. According to Google maps it is 67 kilometers north of Vancouver – or about an hour drive without traffic.
The new Tesla Squamish Supercharger is located in the Garibaldi Village Shopping Center at 40167 Glenalder Pl Squamish BC V8B 0G2 and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As always, Tesla Superchargers are free to use for life. This is the first of several Superchargers that Tesla Motors plans to open in the near future in British Columbia to support long distance travel in the region.
What’s really cool about Tesla Superchargers is that they can give Tesla vehicles a free charge very quickly – up to half capacity in as little as 20 minutes. These charging stations are also located just off major highways and in close proximity to restaurants and shops.
Once I get my Tesla, I’m really looking forward to taking it up to Whistler Blackcomb – and will undoubtedly be making great use of the new Tesla Supercharger in Squamish – Canada’s first Tesla Supercharger! Pretty cool, eh?
