Got a tip last night that a new Supercharger is under construction at the London Drugs at 2032 Lonsdale Ave. The source was actually from a PlugShare location that was added last night with 1 photo of construction workers onsite and a lot of conduits sticking out. I called the London Drugs this morning and I was told EV charging stations are being installed. I think it's safe to assume these are Superchargers, but I will wait to add as someone from TOBC is going out this morning to confirm

PlugShare

This location is going to be packed haha. When I stopped by there, I saw at least 10 Tesla's in the parking lot. Also West Vancouver has the highest % of Teslas per capita. I mean when the average home is $2 mil haha.

8 stalls is not enough, 16 would ~maybe be sufficient.

Same with Richmond with 20 v2 stalls it is always almost full, 24/7 :(

Agreed, but it’s a good start. I won’t be using this new location since I have charging in my condo garage, but I’m happy to see the first Superchargers coming to North Vancouver! Any sign of the transformer?

Glad these are V3 and not Urban.

True this is amazing it is V3, also 4 cabinets which can expand to 12 stalls later in the future! :D

Even more progress as of yesterday. Things are looking good. All of the terminals look ready to go with their white casings on.
But is the transformer installed yet?

I don’t know about Canada, but in California the final step of the local utility installing the transformer and connecting it to the grid can take weeks.
