Hyundai IONIQ 5 EV Road Trip to Canada: Maine-Québec-New Brunswick Loop

From Plug and Play EV.

If our Quick Charge session with KEMPOWER up in Canada piqued your interest in the fast charging options serving eastern Canada, here’s the wider trip in our 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5.

This video focuses on Québec and New Brunswick, with a soupçon of northern Maine’s DCFC limitations dropped in at the end… hopefully that will change soon, as NEVI funding goes to work.

Note that many of the charging stops on this trip were not optimally planned, as I made decisions around testing apps/cards and progressing from 50kW to 100kW and then the full dynamic power of the KEMPOWER solution (video here: They became separate videos, in the end, but the flow still serves to showcase how EV travel has changed in the past five years.

We were last up in Canada with our 2017 Bolt EV when 50-100kW hardware was the norm, as you can see here: Updated hardware from Electric Circuit and new installations from Petro-Canada and Electrify Canada have since upped the power and stall count, in busier regions.

This IONIQ 5 EV road trip to Canada emphasizes both the latest hardware for DC fast charging and the gaps that we still have to fill on both sides of the border.

We hope you find the information useful. If so, consider fueling the channel with a cup of coffee via Ko-Fi so that we can make more!
