Pilot project – Public charging network for medium- and heavy-duty trucks
The Electric Circuit is creating Québec’s first public charging network for medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicles. The first charging station in the pilot project is located on Rue Cunard in Laval. It is an ideal location, since its configuration facilitates access for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles with trailers, which can park on either side of the two charging stations on site. The stations have a combined charging capacity of up to 350 kW with SAE Combo and CHAdeMO connectors.
We have launched this pilot project to identify key elements for the successful rollout of public charging stations for electric trucks. The initiative will help us gain a better understanding of heavy vehicle charging patterns so that we can develop an offer that is in line with their specific requirements.
To meet the charging needs of medium- and heavy-duty truck users while they’re on the road, we are currently evaluating other locations to add new charging stations by 2024. Our goal is to provide dedicated stations for the safe charging of electric trucks that take into account their turning radius and trailer length.

Frequently asked questions
Where will the next medium- and heavy-duty truck charging stations be located?
We are in discussions with several partners to determine ideal locations at which a maximum number of medium- and heavy-duty trucks could charge while they’re on the road.
What is the charging cost at the stations?
The cost to charge medium- and heavy-duty trucks is the same for all the 100 kW+ stations in the Electric Circuit. Go to the Cost of charging page for more information.
Will it be possible to charge medium- and heavy-duty trucks at Electric Circuit charging stations for light vehicles?
Yes, if the layout of the charging site permits.
The charging station on Rue Cunard was part of the light-vehicle network. What are the charging options for the EV drivers who used it?
These fast-charge stations are located nearby:
- Cosmodôme: 2150, Autoroute des Laurentides, H7T 2T8
