Over the past five years electrical cars have been becoming more mainstream, and slowly adopted by the masses. The primarily automotive leader in this space; Tesla, has been expanding its charging stations throughout the country.
Currently, there are no Mississauga Condo buildings which offer electrical car charging stations. The closest ones are about 5KM away from the downtown core, as shown here.
New condo builders like Pinnacle International have recognized this new trend and will offer buyers the option to purchase a charger for their individual parking spot. The first condo project to offer such an option is Amber condo.
The cost for such an upgrade at the moment is $10,000. We do expect this number to come down in price as more and more builders adapt this practice.
Aside from having a private car charging stations, we do anticipate that new condo developers will begin to add electrical vehicle chargers to some of the visitor parking spots found in condos.
For those living in a condo which does not offer electrical charging stations but which to purchase an electrical car, the first step would be to approach the property management. If enough residences in the building raise concerns about not having the charging stations, the property management might consider installing them.
