Tim Horton’s, the Canadian coffee chain that’s home to the legendary “double-double”(the local slang for two cream, two sugar in one’s coffee), has announced a pilot project to install EV charging stations in the parking lots of its coffee shops.
A store in Oakville, a western suburb of Toronto, will be the first to get a charging station. Oakville is home to Ford’s Canadian headquarters, so no surprise that the C-Max was photographed getting a charge at the store. Tim Horton’s says that negotiations are already underway to expand the program, which will provide charging facilities free of charge to owners of EVs and plug-in hybrids. Who knows, maybe this will offset the reduced range that’s certain to be brought on by cold, Canadian winters.
