Sun Country Highway charging stations now connecting Montreal to Detroit (+video)

Sun Country Highway is expanding its network of public charging stations with 20 new 240V stations along the 401 Highway in Ontario, allowing EV users to connect Montreal and Detroit.

This is the result of partnerships with municipal governments and local businesses and organizations to install the stations and provide electricity at each location.

On October 7th, a convoy of plug-in cars set out on a trip to inaugurate the new EV-friendly corridor.

"The 401 Highway is the busiest highway in North America, and now business travellers and eco-tourists have the option to travel emission-free -- a huge step toward a more sustainable future," said president Kent Rathwell.

The Sun Country Highway network spans across the entire Canada and offers free charging to EV users.
