TORONTO — Electric vehicle (EV) drivers can now charge at 16 ONroute locations along the province’s busiest highways, due to an agreement between Ivy Charging Network and ONroute and its partners, Canadian Tire Corporation (CTC), the Ministry of Transportation and Natural Resources Canada.
Each of Ivy’s ONroute Charge & Go locations has between two and four chargers to serve EV drivers, with the possibility of further expansion, supporting the charging needs of all current EV models, including charging ports for Tesla drivers.
In February 2020, Natural Resources Canada, through its Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative, invested $8 million to help build the Ivy Charging Network.
“We are excited to deliver on our commitment of bringing Ivy’s trusted and reliable Charge & Go fast-charger network to Ontario’s busiest routes in time for EV drivers to enjoy their summer road trips with confidence and ease. Through this partnership and the funding provided by Natural Resources Canada, we’re ending range anxiety by providing reliable charging at convenient and accessible locations on Highway 401 and 400,” said Michael Kitchen, General Manager, Ivy Charging Network.
“This partnership supports our travelers’ charging needs at their local ONroute. This summer, stop in to charge-up for the next leg of your journey and discover that ONroute is more than you remember,” said Melanie Teed-Murch, Chief Executive Officer of ONroute.
