The United States and Canada has teamed together to create a new binational EV corridor. This corridor provides EV charging stations accessibility to travels driving through Canada and the United States at certain routes. The corridor goes from Kalamazoo, Michigan all the way to Quebec, City, Quebec and passes through I-94 highway, Highway 401, Highway 20 and Highway 40.
“Canada and the United States have built the world’s largest market-based energy trading relationship, which provides a firm foundation as we strive to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions,” Canada’s Minister of Transport, Omar Alghabra said. “This first cross-border alternative fuel corridor will help drivers to travel across the border and charge or refuel worry-free. It contributes to bringing us another step closer to making our air cleaner while helping people save money on traditional fuels.”
Drivers who travel long distances or plan on taking road trips can struggle with range anxiety and must meticulously plan their routes to ensure EV charging stations are available on their trips. Some remote areas are still charging deserts, meaning there are not a lot of EV charging stations in the area. That will soon change with the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program where the goal is to have EV charging stations every 50 miles on major interstates across the country.
