Electrify Canada is an extension of EA, it is basically the same company
Specifically to US, EA's putting in fast DC charging was a court settlement in US. Not sure if Canada sued to get Electrify Canada but EA has specific court mandated network to build out in US. Not a marketing decision where they can change their mind.

Yes I believe the initial investment came from a settlement with VW

What's of particular interest to me is that in the USA, EA is on par with, if not ahead of where Tesla's Supercharger network was in late 2017 when Tesla owners were touting the superiority of the Supercharger network.

Furthermore, you can basically triple the number of non-EA DCFC stations available to the MME. So in reality, there are far more CCS DCFC sites than Superchargers.

*This doesn't even take into account the additional stations coming online in the next six months.

Very true but keep in mind the older ones are 50kWh, 200 miles an hour charging. That's still fine by could be an hour stop vs. 20 minutes.

Electrify Canada is a shadow of the effort in the States. Petro Canada is killin' it with their stations up north.

70kW or greater are now the majority of CCS stations in the USA.

We're looking at 501 CCS stations in the USA+ Canada of 70kw+ per Plugshare. Add aanother 250+ CCS stations of 50kW as bailout locations and we're at over 750 CCS stations.

Then of course there's quite a few Chevy, Harley and other random 25kW chargers floating around out there that a Tesla could never take advantage of.

Yes for now Petro Canada are the stations of choice for the MME on the move, hopefully Electrify Canada will get on the move so we have more choices.

I listened to a 2019 podcast interview of Harvey Hoicher who drove across Canada from Vancouver Island to St. John's then back home thru the USA. He said Canada was doable in his e-tron but sort of slow going because of the 50kW chargers at the time. His experience using EA going back to BC was just a real game changer for him.

With Petro Canada and soon to add Electrify Canada to the station count, it'll really make the MME ownership experience for Canadians quite nice and versatile.

Other than EA, haven't see any 70kW CCS stations around here. EA's at 50/150/250 and EVgo's at 50kW. Who is the vendor?

In Oregon, I think you guys have just the Madras station with 62.5kW and everything else is 50kW.

If you look nationally on Plugshare.com and de-select for EA, you'll see a ton of EVgo stations that are 70kW+ as well as random ones like the Takoma Park, MD station that pulled out their gas tanks and installed 150kW chargers or 200kW Recargo (owned by Plugshare) out in Salinas, CA.

yeah, i thought EA didn't have 50kW CCS either but it turns out they have like 15-20 of them. Here's an example:

I think it was News Coulomb on YouTube who said that when EA initially got started, they contracted with EVgo to get their first stations up and running so their very early stations are/were 50kW.

EA has 50KW at the two Ohio locations I stopped at for a look-Youngstown and the rest area on the Ohio Turnpike.,
