Ivy, ONroute and Canadian Tire make it easy to charge your next road trip
Electric vehicle fast-charging now available at six ONroute locations along Highway 401
Electric vehicle (EV) drivers can now charge at select ONroute locations along one of Ontario’s busiest highways. Ivy Charging Network, ONroute and their partners, Canadian Tire Corporation (CTC) and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) announced the opening of six EV fast-charging stations:
- Cambridge North
- Cambridge South
- West Lorne
Each of Ivy’s level 3 fast-chargers at ONroute locations will support the charging of all EV models, including charging ports for Tesla drivers.
- Ivy Charging Network is installing a total of 69 level 3 fast-chargers across all ONroute locations, with the possibility of further expansion. Each location will have between two and four chargers to serve EV drivers.
- Ivy’s ONroute Charge & Go locations will offer charging speeds of up-to 150 kWs, delivering up to a 100 km charge in 10 minutes.
- This partnership is part of CTC’s ongoing expansion of EV charging infrastructure across Canada.
- Ivy Charging Network is a joint venture between Hydro One and Ontario Power Generation.
Natural Resources Canada, through its Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative, invested $8-million to help build the Ivy Charging Network.
