Are you driving an electric car? Wondering where to get your next charge?
Look no more – Wawa has multiple stations available.
Electric Car Basic Mileage Information
New fully electric cars can typically travel at least 200 kilometres on a single charge. Some plug-in hybrid electric cars can travel 40-80 kilometres on electric, with an additional 500-900 kilometres of gas range. The distance an EV can travel depends on:
- the vehicle technology (battery electric or plug-in hybrid)
- battery size
- weight carried
- accessories in use
- an individual’s driving style
EVs do not run out of charge unexpectedly. As with gasoline-powered vehicles, the dashboard display will indicate your level of charge so you can plan your trips accordingly.
There are levels to charging stations as well:
Level 2 charging, common in both private households and in public places, use a 240 volt system (similar to a clothes dryer plug) and adds 30-50 kilometers of range per hour.
charging stations (also known as Direct Current Fast Chargers or DCFC) use a
480 volt system and can add more than 100 kilometres of range per hour. These
stations make longer trips feasible for EV drivers.

Our EV fast chargers are DC fast chargers, also known as level 3 or 3+. Our chargers provide the two universal standard connectors – CCS & CHAdeMO. These chargers are currently capable of offering up to 350kW at most sites.
As long as your vehicle is compatible with level 3 charging. Our EV fast chargers are compatible with all plug-in electric vehicles that have a CCS or CHAdeMO connection. For Tesla Model S and X owners, you’ll need a CHAdeMO adaptor (available through the manufacturer and many Tesla authorized retail locations) to charge at our locations.
Charging speeds reach between 4 km and 30 km of range per minute of charging. Each of our EV charging stations offer up to a maximum of 200kW or 350kW of power output, depending on the station.
There are plenty of factors that could affect charging speed; for example:
- your vehicle’s maximum charging capacity
- the state of charge and condition of the vehicle battery
- the outdoor temperature
- the number of vehicles charging at the location simultaneously

6 Superchargers Available – 24/7 Up to 250 KW
Supercharger stations are conveniently located near desirable amenities like restaurants, shops and WiFi hot spots. Each station contains multiple Superchargers to get you back on the road quickly. The supercharger location in Wawa is located close to the local Tim Hortons, which also provides free wifi as well as restrooms.
Below are additional program details which apply to Tesla vehicles under the Supercharger program.
- Where possible, owners are billed per kWh (kilowatt-hour), which is the most fair and simple method. In other areas, we bill for the service per minute.
- When billing per minute, there are two tiers to account for changes in charging speeds, called “tier 1” and “tier 2”.
- Tier 1 applies while cars are charging at or below 60 kW and tier 2 applies while cars are charging above 60 kW. Tier 1 is half the cost of tier 2.
- Tier 1 also applies anytime your vehicle is sharing Supercharger power with another car.
Supercharging is simple and convenient—just plug in and charge up. Supercharging history is automatically populated in your Tesla Account showing the credits used or, if applicable, the amount billed.
If you do not have a Tesla – its not a problem! Most electric cars are compatible – visit the Telsa website for more information.
