TORONTO — 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
Napanee
Odessa
West Lorne
Dutton

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.

“Our partnership with ONroute, Canadian Tire and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation will end range anxiety for EV drivers travelling on the province’s major highways. These new fast-charging locations will give drivers the confidence they need on their road trips, to get them where they need to go this summer,” said Michael Kitchen, General Manager, Ivy Charging Network in a statement.
