Tesla Supercharger Station in Saskatchewan

Posted by

Construction has begun on a Tesla Supercharger Station in Saskatchewan! Finally, the large gap in Supercharger Stations across the Trans-Canada highway is about to be reduced. According to Tesla, many more Trans-Canada Superchargers are also scheduled to come online in 2019.

YouTuber, InternetDude just posted a short video of construction in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Thanks InternetDude!

Trans-Canada Highway – Tesla Supercharging

The above map shows part of the current North American Tesla Supercharger network. Red markers indicate currently open Supercharging stations. Grey markers indicate “soon to be open” stations. The red oval highlights the large gap of Supercharging stations along the Trans-Canada highway. In fact, from Calgary, Alberta to Sudbury, Ontario, there isn’t a single Tesla Supercharger station. To clarify, that’s a distance of over 3000 km/1864 miles along a major highway! Won’t be long before that changes! (Note: There are a number of slower destination chargers along the Trans-Canada route.)

Canada is a massive country with a relatively small population. On the flip side, 90% of the Canadian population is concentrated within 160 km/100 miles of the American border. Moreover, the cities along the gap have a combined population of over 1.25 million people. Furthermore, adding more Supercharger stations along the Trans-Canada highway will reduce “range anxiety” fears. Therefore, I expect Tesla will noticeably increase their sales in these areas as more Superchargers are completed.

V3 Supercharging Coming?

Tesla recently announced new V3 Supercharging technology. V3 will dramatically speed up charging times. In fact, V3 charging time could be as little as 15 minutes. Will the “opening soon” Tesla Superchargers utilize the new V3 technology??? I can’t wait to find out!

Saskatoon Supercharger?

Currently, Saskatoon isn’t listed on Tesla’s Supercharger webpage. Saskatoon is a 2.5 hour drive north of Regina, and the Trans-Canada highway. On the other hand, Saskatoon is a major transportation corridor. Finally, Saskatoon has a sizeable population of 275,000 people. Therefore, I’m hoping Tesla will build in Saskatoon a.s.a.p.

  1. This is great news. After that, perhaps they could install at least one Super Charger in each of Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland/Labrador and/or Cape Breton Island for the Cabot Trail. or… sell me at a REASONABLE cost, a L3 charging adapter so I can drive one of Canada’s best scenic highways.

    1. Hey, managed to find a Internet here in Brazil so was able to check out this article before I head into the rainforests. Great news about the super chargers. Sadly though, this still make EVs a more urban consideration. As from you map it is evident that a large portion of Canada will still be a desert in terms of charging. It will not be economically viable for a company to outfit the far reaches. This is a space where the federal gov should pick up the slack. The costs should be negligible and part of the extensive Canadian highway network. They could easily subsidize the outfitting of select gas stations in suburban areas. Even it is just the more generic charging station would still be better than nothing. This would greatly ease the decision for choosing EV. Well Iā€™m off.

      1. Thanks for your input Doug. It will be interesting to see how the Supercharger network progresses. It will be great to see a number of stations all along the Trans-Canada!
