MONTREAL – Electric vehicle pioneers will soon have less to fret about as they travel Quebec roads because Canada’s first public network of charging stations is about to power up.

By March, the first 90 240-volt charging stations should be operating at 60 sites in the Montreal and Quebec City regions, those behind Quebec’s Electric Circuit say.

The 90 stations, which can be used by all-electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids, will be joined by another 30 in the summer, bringing to 120 the number of charging stations in the network.

“We are following the rhythm of the arrival of electric vehicles in Quebec,” Pierre-Luc Desgagné, Hydro-Québec’s senior director of strategic planning, said Thursday at the Montreal International Auto Show.
