IKEA Canada wants to be the destination for drivers of electric vehicles.

The Swedish retailer is installing electric vehicle charging stations at each of its 12 stores across Canada.

The rollout is set to be completed by late August and will be provided at no cost to customers on a first-come, first-served basis.

IKEA is partnering with Sun Country Highway on the project, which includes the installation of two SCH-60 “Level 2” 60-amp charge stations.

“Installing electric vehicle charging stations at all IKEA Canada stores reinforces our commitment to sustainability,” said Stefan Sjostrand, president of IKEA Canada, in a statement.
