Quebec’s network of electric vehicle charging stations showing strong growth
10 new fast-charge stations on the way as province continues shift to EVs
BOUCHERVILLE, Que.—Quebec’s electric vehicle charging network is beginning to stretch out across the province, with new stations cropping up regularly. The Electric Circuit, the largest public charging sharing network in Quebec, and Les Rôtisseries St-Hubert, in partnership with Nissan Canada, have announced the commissioning of ten new fast-charge stations for electric vehicles.
“I am delighted that Québec-based company, Les Rôtisseries St-Hubert, and a manufacturer like Nissan are offering the charging infrastructure needed to support the adoption of even more electric vehicles on our roads,” Quebec’s Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Pierre Arcand, said.
The 10 new stations will span 10 different cities from Laval to Piedmont, and add to an already impressive network of charging stations for EVs. The Electric Circuit notes the addition of the fast-charge stations is “great news” for the province’s current and future EV drivers, making it easier for drivers to make intercity trips.
“We are thrilled to see how quickly the Electric Circuit has grown in the past few months thanks to the support of all its partners, including Nissan,” Christian Meunier, president of Nissan Canada, said. “More Quebecers are opting for electric vehicles, like the Nissan LEAF, and will continue to do so as long as the public charging infrastructure also continues to expand, making it easier for electric vehicles to cover long distances.”
The Electric Circuits network has grown to comprise nearly 500 public charging stations across 16 different regions of Quebec. Since its launch in 2012 it has secured more than 5,000 members and over 100 institutional and corporate partners.
