    A pretty decent article, but did they say most (Canadian) EVs are fleet-owned?

    I have no idea what they're talking about on that one. I've not been seeing electric fleet vehicles around here anyway.

    The Powerstream charger is a level 3 Chademo and J1772 coupler.

    Does this mean we can charge?

    I assumed the second plug was CCS/SAE Combo Edit: [as stated by eMileage], or whatever they're calling the standard used by BMW (and a few other companies too, but which don't sell EVs to individuals in Canada).

    I wonder what 3rd-party manufacturer will be the 1st to offer a Tesla connector on their 25-50kW stations.

    Sadly, Ms. Yates seems like one of those "experts" who neither drives, nor has much in the way of personal experience with EV's...that "fleet-owned" statement is absurd at best..:rolleyes:.

    She also appears to grossly misunderstand the "leaving your garage with a full battery after an overnight charge" benefit...her quote..

    "The map does show hundreds, perhaps even thousands of level 2 charging stations in Canada. But almost all of those will take four hours to charge a car."
