The Tesla Supercharger station in Kingston, Ontario has just started a much-needed expansion to help alleviate long wait times often experienced by Tesla owners.
With just six 150kW V2 Superchargers at the current location at 97 Dalton Avenue, it is not uncommon to see multiple cars waiting to charge at the busy location. The good news is construction has already begun to expand the number of Superchargers to 8 stalls.
It is unknown at this time if the expansion will include an upgrade to the latest V3 Superchargers, which are capable of charging at up to 250kW.
Update: Thanks to Drive Tesla reader Jesse Vandermeer for providing us with the first photos of the construction already underway.
While the addition of two more Supercharger stalls in Kingston is welcomed news, it is not what owners in the region were hoping for. Earlier this year there were rumours Tesla would be adding 12 V3 Supercharger stalls at King’s Crossing Power Centre, across the street from the existing location. So far that has yet to materialize.
This is the second expansion of an existing Supercharger in recent months. In August Tesla owners in Kamloops also welcomed two new Superchargers, bringing their total to six V2 Superchargers. Since that expansion did not include an upgrade to the new V3 technology, it is unlikely Kingston will receive the faster Superchargers.
