The world’s largest furniture retailer, IKEA, announces that all of their twelve Canadian stores will receive electric charging stations. The Level 2 charging stations will be free to use and each location will be outfitted with two stations, both rated at 60 amps.

“Charging will be provided to customers at no cost, on a first come first serve basis,” the company said.

The charging units and service has been contracted through Sun Country Highway.

“Electric vehicle charging stations are an important step on IKEA Canada’s continuing journey towards sustainability,” Ikea sustainability manager Brendan Seale said.

Last year just over 5,000 EVs were sold in Canada. Through June approximately 2,700 EVs have been sold, mostly the Tesla Model S cars.
