Sept. 30, 2019 – Electrify Canada opened its first direct-current electric vehicle (EV) charging station at Toronto Premium Outlets in Halton Hills, Ont. It is the company’s first of 32 planned charging stations set to appear near major highways and in large metropolitan areas in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec.

During the opening, the company also announced the launch of a new mobile app, pricing structure and tiered membership options, in an effort to encourage more consumers to purchase an EV.The mobile app, available on both Android and iPhone devices, allows users to find a nearby charger, start, track and pay for an EV charging session using their smartphone. Electrify Canada says members will also be able to view their charging history using the app and track energy delivered, session costs, member savings and more.
