    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hi, Currently at the site. It is being setup by a Tesla person. Super nice man. Power is on but I was told not to use it as not fully setup. Will be running either today or tomorrow. Notice the lit up Tesla name! So happy! Regards, Bertrand

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hi, Went there today and no change. Tested the parking for supercharging. As someone said earlier, typical parking so no real issue other than the Model S is a big car and navigating that parking lot is going to be "fun". Still not turned on... Have a great week. Bertrand

    SuperCharger - Magog, Qc

    Hello, I'm currently at the charger. Hydro-Quebec is working on the pole to kook things up it seems. The site has repainted love Med and all the greenery has been completed. So.... If we're really lucky, we may have an active site by the end of the week. Here are some pics I took. Have a...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    @RiverBrick : I don't quite understand why this would have anything to do with having Tesla Superchargers. My understanding is that Tesla is the responsible entity to decide where they put SCs, not the provinces or states. I am not aware of our government (Federal or Provincial) being in...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hi, Yes, the configuration is quite different and no, there is not that much space. It is slightly larger than standard but not much so tight between the chargers. The electricians a fairly consistant as they told Anibal2 the same thing they told me yesterday... So, we'll see. Still...

    SuperCharger - Magog, Qc

    Hi Ben, I agree that it won't happen. You actually saw me this morning go through to see the state of things. I'll be going through Drummondville to go back home today because of this. Hopefully it will be up this week anyway. It's the first time I see the Chargers up without their...

    Hello everyone, I am going to Sherbrooke tomorrow and should be at the site by 12:30 or 13:00. I will let you know what happens. Really looking forward to it and crossing my fingers! Regards, Bertrand

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hello, I passed by the site today and asked the 2 electricians on site. They told me that they were mostly done with everything and that it was Hydro-Quebec that needed to hook things up now. I saw them working on the transformer again today. They told me that it would take 2 weeks for...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hi, Update just in! We have transformers on the pad!!! Here are some pics. They are not hooked up yet but that should be soon methinks. Really excited. Will go back at the end of day tomorrow. That's it for today. Good night. Bertrand

    SuperCharger - Magog, Qc

    Hello Everyone, Time for another update. This is a good one. I spoke with the electricians that were on site finalizing the installation of the Tesla equipment. They told me that by the end of this week, they will have completed all the electrical work, including installing and hooking up...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hi, I really like the red pillars! That will help distinguish that section of the parking lot. I guess there is no transfo yet. Drove past last night and the pad was still empty. Looking forward to see a MX in the flesh @Martin VanB ! Regards, Bertrand

    SuperCharger - Magog, Qc

    Hi, Well, came here earlier than expected. To be honest, things are advancing really slowly here... The St-Laurent SC is going up much faster. All things are here except for the transformer. Here are som pictures as promised.

    SuperCharger - Magog, Qc

    Hello everyone, Seems not to be too many people going to the Magog site... I just wanted to let you know that I will be going either this week-end or, for sure, on May 25th as I have a meeting in Sherbrooke and will need to charge in Magog on my way back. Hopefully, I will be able to use the...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hi, Humpday update. The pictures above have not changed much. Here are some new ones from today. Asphalt is now in place as well as all the plastics for the superchargers. No lines yet painted. You will notice, as the picture posted earlier by Jeeps87, that there is still no transformer on...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hi, Thanks for the arrows. That makes a lot of sense. Very non standard for Tesla drivers used to the back-in SCs. This is the way the others in this parking lot park so that will not be disruptive for them. Hopefully, there will be bright green paint including the electric car logo on the...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hi, Well, that is not relevant for someone who has business in Montreal and needs to go back West... I think it's still a great thing that there is a SC in Montreal but it would be also nice to have one in the two spots I mentioned above. Also, one must keep in mind that while destination...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    UPDATE!!! Hello, Thought I would give you an update on this site. I dropped by the SC today to check on progress. There will be 12 stalls and the way they are positioned, in case they are busy, will be a nice use of auto park. There seems to be 2 in each row that are really close to each other...

    Supercharger - Montreal, QC - Cote Vertu Blvd.

    Hello everyone, First, let me say thank you Tesla for building the electric infrastructure that most governments don't have the courage to do. Tesla didn't have to do that and many people don't understand that. I don't see BMW nor GM nor Nissan, to name just these three, building any kind of...

    SuperCharger - Magog, Qc

    Hi, Having actually used the Chademo at that location, I can tell you that having a SC there is extremely useful. I live in Montreal and my extended family is all in Sherbrooke. I can do the return trip on one charge (70D) in summer but not as soon as temps become 10C or less. It also makes...

    Fantastic news! Thank you very much for letting us know. Now, that is what I call live coverage!!! Now crossing fingers for a Plattsburgh Supercharger also. Would cut down on driving time for me. Have a great day. Bertrand

    Supercharger - Burlington VT

    Hi, I just looked at Google Maps and using the actual address of the Supercharger in Burlington, I get 397 km and 4h51 to get to the Albany Supercharger. When going through Plattsburgh, I get 359 km and 3h39. Of course, I don't have an address for a supercharger in Plattsburgh... So, yes...

    Supercharger - Burlington VT

    Hi Todd, Thank you very much for the updates and your dedication in helping us that essentially require this Supercharger. OK, require may be a bit strong a word but really, it is very useful to have it now (or really really soon). Happy you got to be the first car on it too! I've just made...

    Supercharger - Burlington VT

    hi @zax, Indeed it is. however, there are no superchargers there. The trip woul need to go via New Lebanon which is much longer. Of course, were there a Supercharger in Plattsburgh, that would be even better! at least the black hole is now filled... i only have a 70D so stressful to...

    Supercharger - Burlington VT

    This is SSSSOOOOOOO cool! This is THE supercharger I was waiting for to be able to effortlessly go to NYC from Montreal. Really happy that it is up and running now. Looking forward to see what stores are around to shop in/eat while charging. Thank you so much for the follow-ups with pictures...

    Firmware 7.0

    Hello again, Had a few more drives with the car today. Over 90 km of autopilot use in 2 trips. Mostly highways (40 west around Montreal) and a bit of little town road. Markings were perfect on the roads. The software performed flawlessly. Really happy with it. i tried Autopark yesterday and...

    Firmware 7.0

    Hi, Quick update from Canada. Received the notification at midnight on the 19th and installed today (19th @ 5pm). Everything seems to be working well. Tried autopilot (against what is recommended) on a sigle road, wet at night and it still worked some. Will do more tests in the coming days...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Hi, I also have the shudder on my 70D. It's about 2 months old. It only started after the last software update (about 1 week ago). As with the previous posts, the shudder is pretty noticeable when i coast. It doesn't do it all the time but about 90% of the time. I'm thinking it will go away...

    New tesla 70D owner!

    Hi Lex, its not not that bad really. I don't think you should avoid it at all and the staff is extremely friendly. The curve at the store is not that bad and quite on par with the Drummondville SC. Good night. berty

    New tesla 70D owner!

    Hi Kratus, As Kushari says, the chargers in Montreal seem to be in need of a checkup. There was a car next to me and that had some influence on the Amps I was getting as you can see from the graph. However, the other Supercharger used, Drummondville, gave me similar results with regards to...

    New tesla 70D owner!

    Hi Kratus, Thanks for the formula. I've tried it but it doesn't seem to work when I work with the data I have. If I understand correctly, I need to know the rated Wh/km from my car at the beginning of the charge. If I estimate it (or use the average of 200 Wh/km - which is close to my current...

    Supercharging the 70D

    Hi, This is not actually a calculation to fit a curve as I did during my studies. These are simple graphs of raw data, real world data of me supercharging my 70D. This represents only my car. It would be great to see other graphs from other cars! My car is 2 weeks old and currently has...

    Supercharging the 70D

    Hello everyone, As promised, I have taken data down when supercharging my 70D. I have supercharged her 4 times so far. The attached graphics are from 3 supercharging sessions. There were 2 in Drummondville on Supercharger 1A and 1 at the Ferrier Street Tesla Store on 1B (as per Kushari's...

    New tesla 70D owner!

    Hi Kushari, I ordered a 70D in blue also and will be getting it at the Montreal Store. The question i have for you is how long between you got the "In transit" and the car actually showing up ready for delivery in Montreal? I got my "In transit" confirmation (website) today!!! Timeline for...
