The vice president of Sun Country Highway, a company started and owned by a Huron County businessman, says one of the challenges for electric vehicles has always been the availability of charging stations.

Chris Misch explains one of their missions was to create an electric highway across Canada by installing charging stations in towns like Blyth and Goderich and up the Bruce Peninsula to Owen Sound.

Misch says they made that point recently by staging a cross-country race, asking electric vehicles to travel across the continent and accumulate points at each Sun Country charging station they visited, before arriving at the finish line in Vancouver.

Misch says the winners live in Oregon and drove their electric Tesela to St. Johns, Newfoundland and then back to Vancouver all on the Sun Country Highway network, for a total of 24,000 km in a month.

Misch adds this year Sun Country Highway is installing another 1,000 high-powered charging stations in Canada.
