A second Tesla Supercharger station in Kamloops is under construction, but it is not in the location we expected it to be.
A 12-stall V3 Supercharger is being built by the former ToysRUs building in the Sahali business area at 1380 Summit Drive.
According to a photo of the site taken by one of our readers, all of the ground work has been completed and it looks like crews are waiting for the Supercharger equipment to arrive. Even the Tesla parking signs are already up.

Last year we learned there was going to be a second Supercharger station added in Kamloops. The Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc First Nation announced it was going to be built at the Petro-Canada gas station at 301 Southern Yellowhead Hwy, making it what would have been the first Supercharger on First Nations land in Canada.
We are not sure if this location is still going ahead. We have reached out to Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc but have not received a reply at the time of publication. We will update this article when we get a response.
According to Tesla, the second Kamloops Supercharger is scheduled to open in Q4 2022, but based on the construction it looks like this station will open in Q3.
UPDATE: This article was updated to reflect that it will actually be a 12-stall Supercharger, not 10 stalls as originally reported.
