    Ontario EV Rebates Cancelled July 11, 2018

    Also - when the Model 3 First was orderable in Canada - Tesla Was Not on the Ontario Rebates List anymore (Since in March they Capped it at the $75,000 Limit, and the S & X were all above that), the Model 3 got listed later as it was likely in process at the time, but not yet Priced so could not...

    Ontario EV Rebates Cancelled July 11, 2018

    I think Free Ridership is unmeasurable in this current program, as opposed to a Cash For Scrap Program, where you get the Rebate only when you Scrap an ICE Car to buy an EV Car (Or SUV). (In B.C. that adds 50% to the EV Rebate, going from $5,000 to $7,500 if you Scrap an ICE Vehicle, as I...

    Western Canada Superchargers

    I did send an email to the Supercharger Team Congratulating them on getting the 2017 Map Plan up, but also shared the Disappointment that there was nearly no more Superchargers connecting Sudbury with Winnipeg, or Winnipeg with Calgary & Edmonton, as well as Edmonton with Prince George, and Hope...

    Dashcam Option

    With the Coming Mobil-eye system with 8 Cameras for the Autopilot functionality - if they have room for them - they could add one more (High Res, 4K, 120 frames per second, would be super), included for drivers records, insurance, and recording those 1/4 mile runs - facing forward, and - for...

    Mexico Superchargers

    I guess - since they had a Popup Store in the Mexico City Area - this is likely the neighborhood with a lot of interest / demand - for the Model S, and maybe - the Model 3!

    Supercharger - Port Huron, MI

    And yet - it was shown on Supercharge.info - as added on June 1st, in the 'Changes' tab, in-spite of the knowledge that is was permitted in April! So - know we know - the date listed in Changes - is generic and related only to the date they receive the notifications from volunteers! Even...

    Erie, PA Supercharger Updates

    To Clarify - I said - "the worker stated", but as we can see - there may have been some misunderstanding, as it does not seem they would bring the press there if the Charging Stall Heads are still bagged! Also - As to his job, he was surface Coating the Parking Spots, after he removed the Snow...

    Erie, PA Supercharger Updates

    I took some pics, on my cell, but they are not so much different that the ones above, except the amount of work on the housing enclosure, but I heard from a worker there who was removing the fence and preparing to seal the parking spots: He mentioned that today there would be a Press Event...

    Central Canada Superchargers

    While it is currently obvious that Tesla plans to connect Calgary with the US, and Winnipeg with the US similarly, on a straight North-South Connection for 2016, we keep hearing that there will be an updated Tesla Supercharger Map (I expect - with 2017 Forecast plans at least - if not 2018 as...

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Details of Permit Stage - what it means or might mean? Peter - thanks for getting back to me with your thoughts at least. I guess Tesla's supercharging team is too busy to respond to this question with any details, as it likely varies from each place they go into!

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Back to the topic at hand - "SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc" - does this 292 days in 'Permit' stage - not seem like the longest piece of Red Tape Ever? When compared to Port Macquarie, Australia, that was in permit stage all of about 4-5 days, it seems like the Coal and Oil Lobby...

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Thanks for 'Getting it' Peter! Correct - that was the question: and - as this is from the phone app, which as I know my phone does good screen captures - a couple different ways, does the Tesla Screen have the ability to do a screen capture of it?

    Powerstream SAE charger at 400 & MajMack

    Actually - that line maybe should be - "looks like it was produced by an engineer (with Poor vision, so they made it big to see it better!)." Also - I understand CHAdeMO - is Analog, while Tesla Model S & Supercharger Plug/Communications are in Digital format - so multiplexing of data can be...

    Doug, I wonder how the BMW i3 is with it's Carbon Fiber Body in these Cold Cold Temps? Does the Vehicle Shell Material make any difference? Would a good Foam-Core Composite Shell on a Vehicle keep the heat from leaking out better than the metal ones we use now (Steel OR Aluminum - both good...

    Well, for our population ratio of about 10% - that means - we are about 4 short: 292 X 10% = 29(.2), 29 - 25 (your numbers) = 4 short. Look forward into 2016 - and you see the ratio improving - with the USA-Calgary Link (+ Edmonton), and the Winnipeg Link, and the extras in Ontario North of...

    Looks like a decent amount of amenities there, too, plus the Cedar Creek Golf & Country Club - which would be nice if you were only using a Model S HPWC, but you would just be blocking a SC Stall much longer than needed if you played round of Golf! Also - there is East Side Mario's at 555...

    What's the Ideal Distance Between Superchargers?

    Funny! $40 is what it cost me to Drive from San Antonio, TX to Toronto, ON - but - that was when Gas was a Buck a Gallon = 40 Gallons for the trip (~1988)!

    Who in Canada will order the new P85D?

    Yes - you could buy and get rebates for up to 5 EV's a year at first notice. The number might even have been upped since i read that - Eligible Electric Vehicles(BEV) rebates. Oops - found it: 25 vehicles per year - Electric vehicle incentive program.

    Here is an Idea - Use the Tesla Model S HPWC's located in areas where future SC's are to be added!
