Richmond, the region with what is likely the highest concentration of Teslas in British Columbia, is set to receive its second Supercharger station.
Construction has just begun on a new station at the Ironwood Plaza (11666 Steveston Hwy), located just off Hwy 99 in south Richmond.
According to a photo of the site taken by William de la Cruz and shared on Facebook, crews have begun digging up an area in the middle of the parking lot by the Save-On-Foods grocery store.
Based on the area under construction it appears it will be at least a 12-stall Supercharger.
Although there is no Tesla equipment on site yet, it was confirmed to be a Supercharger with us by Supercharger sleuth Marco (@MarcoRPTesla). It also makes sense that it would be a Supercharger given Tesla’s recent installations in Save-On-Foods parking lots in Surrey and Revelstoke.
According to Tesla this station is scheduled to open in Q1 2023 but given that construction has already started we should hopefully see it open in Q4 2022.
When it does it will be the second Supercharger in Richmond, and welcomed by local Tesla owners as the existing 20-stall station at CF Richmond Centre is frequently subject to long line-ups of owners waiting to plug in.
