In a good news for the users who want to top up their Tesla using an extra-speedy V3 Supercharger, the EV maker said that 26 of the 46 Supercharger stations under construction along the Trans-Canada Highway will be V3 models.

This is the first large-scale deployment of the faster chargers — there are only a handful of them in the US.

This is an unusual focus for Tesla when it tends to serve the US first, but it makes sense given the realities of the Canadian driving. It’s a more sparsely populated country with longer stretches between cities than you see stateside, Engadget reported on Sunday quoting The Verge.
