Group Germain Hotels are first to join Tesla Destination Charging network in Canada
The programme has already seen strong take-up in the US, where the electric carmaker has teamed up with restaurants, hotels and other locations to install Level 2 chargers.
Now Group Germain Hotels has become the first venue in Canada to join the network, providing guests with access to a private network of over 20 EV charging stations capable of delivering a full charge in four to eight hours.
Jean-Yves Germain, co-president of Group Germain Hotels, said: ‘Our EV-driving guests can now have peace of mind knowing that they can get a full charge overnight or while attending on-site meetings. As a Tesla driver myself, I am thrilled to be able to recharge at almost every one of our hotels and I look forward to one day taking an emission-free road trip from coast to coast.’
‘Tesla Motors is pleased to partner with Group Germain Hotels and provide accessible charging for patrons travelling with Model S and other electric vehicles. Their commitment to sustainability is a quality that resonates with our customers, and we're excited they will have extra charging options as they explore eastern Canada,’ added Tesla spokesperson, Will Nicholas.
Universal and Tesla charging stations ranging from 60 to 100 amps are currently available at Le Germain and Alt Hotels in Quebec City, Montreal and Toronto. The Alt Hotel in Halifax currently has a universal charging station that is connected to the VERnetwork. Additional stations will be deployed in Calgary from the New Year.
