Tesla has started construction of its first new Canadian Supercharger in 2024, with crews getting to work this week on a new station in North Vancouver, British Columbia.
The new North Vancouver Supercharger is located in front of the Choices Market at 801 Marine Drive. Based on photos of the site taken by @mancaveenergy on X (formerly Twitter), construction is still in the very early stages with excavation complete and underground conduit being laid this week.
Can you build a new super charger station in a snow storm? North Vancouver drivers have no idea there are 20 charging stalls underway here… pic.twitter.com/rlsp1BSzlK— road racer (@mancaveenergy) January 18, 2024
Based on the amount of space blocked off for construction, it appears as though the North Vancouver Supercharger could be 20 stalls or more.
As you can see in the photos above, Vancouver has been hit with some snow this week, which could slow the pace of construction, but it is believed Tesla is aiming to open the new North Vancouver Supercharger in February.
This will be the second Supercharger in North Vancouver, bringing some much needed additional capacity to the lower mainland’s north shore. The existing North Vancouver Supercharger is located about 3km away at 2032 Lonsdale Avenue, and is frequently fully occupied. It was originally just an 8-stall station, but was quickly expanded within a year of its opening to 12 stalls.
