As many of you know, I've been helping Sun Country Highway with the development of their charging network. I just thought I'd let you know about some exciting new developments.
Yesterday, in St. John's, Newfoundland, a Tesla Roadster started on a long journey. It will wind its way across the continent, visiting cities all along the Trans Canada Highway, before ultimately arriving in Victoria, British Columbia. Along the way, all charging will be provided by the new Sun Country Highway electric vehicle charging station network. That's right, it's now possible to drive coast-to-coast entirely under electric power!
In a recent tweet Tesla Motors called it "the World's Longest/Greenest Highway Project!"
Chris Misch is tweeting about his progress at Sun Country Highway (SunCountryHwy). They dodged a bit of a bullet today, managing to squeak by just before a landslide washed out the Trans Canada!
At the end of the journey Sun Country Highway will roll out the full charging network, facilitating long-distance travel by electric vehicles for all Canadians. Tesla owners will be particularly interested to know that the majority of these charge stations are capable of 70A power.
