Canada: Electric Tesla Roadster completes cross-country trek

Kent Rathwell imagines a day when there are electric car-charging stations from coast to coast.

To prove a point, he drove in a ‘full-electric’ Tesla Roadster from the Toronto car show to the Vancouver International Auto Show.

“To show it could be done,” Rathwell said at a booth advertising the 2,000-kilometre, all-electric journey and the Sun Country Highway car chargers he installed along the way to get him here. “It was pretty tight,” Rathwell said of his cross-country quest. “Swift Current (Sask.) got their charger the morning that I arrived.”

Kal Tire installed a host of chargers, and the upscale Banff Springs Hotel now houses one of Rathwell’s machines.

Three main variables affect charging time – the power of the charger, the speed with which the vehicle can accept that charge and whether the charger is running on conventional 110-volt or appliance-level, 220-volt current.
