    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    I agree that the Supercharging strategy is a bit wacky but I recall I first learned of it when the Tesla Supercharger team did their very first 'high speed' crossing of the USA, which they did once the density of Superchargers was in place to allow such a thing. Specifically, I recall their...

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    Anyone have updates on the proposed Levis, Quebec Supercharger? I have an annual summer trip to the Maritimes in July, and it would be so ideal to have it in place. I haven't posted for a while but I just recently got back from a winter road trip to Wilmington Beach, North Carolina in my old...

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    I just stuck with straight Trans Canada, using 30 to bypass Montreal. Going east, after Drummundville SC, I used: - Circuit Electrique in La Pocatiere with Lance's adapter - Sun County in RDL and/or Edmunston (via Plugshare options) If you take breaks, you'll find plenty of options via...

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Just got back from my road trip to New Brunswick. It was the most smooth trip yet and the bonus loan of an adapter from Lance made it go even faster. If/when we get those SCs in place in Levis/RDL/Woodstock, an electric car road trip to Canada's east coast will be truly delightful. I really...

    Hi Lance, thanks for offering. I'll be driving east on Saturday, July 2 coming from Ontario. I usually try to avoid Montreal city centre by using highway 30. Depending on where you live, please let me know what options there might be for a hand off of the adapter that would least hassle for...

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Hi slyastro - I tried to send an email via the club website but no reply. I'm looking to see if I can borrow the adapter, and join the club. Please let me know. Thanks.

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    This deal sounds perfect! Is there any way that some kind of pickup could be arranged from a location on the TransCanada south of Trois Rivieres? I ask because I'll be coming west to east and the detour up to Trois Rivieres would use too many kms. Have you ever done something like this before?

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Thanks for detail everyone. I'll investigate the options and see what works. I know the best solution for all of us would simply be that the Tesla gods make this SC appear by the end of June!

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Related question for everyone here. I'm anticipating that I will have to do my trip in six weeks without an SC at RDL, so I'm planning a route that uses the Circuit Electrique at Lac Pocetiere. The catch is that I don't currently own a Chademo adapter. I've seen options for people that are...

    SuperChargers - Rivière-du-Loup, Qc

    Just going to add my voice to the chorus on this thread. I've got family in New Brunswick and I've done the drive out to Woodstock area twice in the past two years in my old school S60. It sure would be nice to have that RDL charger up in the next six weeks as my next trip is the first week of...

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    "All six superchargers in Kingston were occupied for about 10 minutes around 6pm on Sunday evening, although with the flow in and out there was never a line-up." That's interesting as I left the Kingston charger at about 5:30 pm and 5/6 stalls were taken at that point. I was really surprised...

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    I'm the guy that always asks about Cobourg, but today I wonder about Quebec City and Riviere-du-loop. I drove out that way in the summer (in my old school 60) and both would have been very welcome, I tell ya. I'll be doing the drive again in the spring, and boy would it be nice to have them by...

    Charge port problem

    I agree with mknox on this one. I have had several replacements of ports and connectors over the past 2 1/2 years. I am equally concerned about the long term durability of the Tesla's connector design as it seems to degrade over time, ie repeated plug-ins bends/shapes the plastic in a way to...

    Just completed a road trip in my 2013-era 'old school' 60 all the way to Woodstock, NB. A few observations after hitting Superchargers in Kingston/Cornwall/Drummondville and using Sun Country (with various odds and sods the rest of the way): 1. Superchargers really rock. Obvious statement but...

    I'm holding up both hands...and one leg... to vote for Cobourg. I've been waiting for this one since the day I bought the car in March 2003...when a dot for Cobourg used to be on the SC map...then went away after a few months...then came back. Lately, this thread had been getting pretty quiet...

    Anybody know where the Ontario Supercharger team is at right now? I assume they use a different team in Quebec, but we haven't heard much about the Ontario team since they finished Comber.

    Any know...or want to speculate...on where the Tesla Ontario Supercharger Contractor/Build team is right now? I assume it is the same group moving from site to site, and I'd love to know where there are now. Anybody here want to stick a GPS tracker on their trucks?

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    Congratulations long suffering Ontarians! Kingston and Barrie open in January 2015, amazing. I've got a feeling that will save a few marriages (ie. road trips north and east finally in the winter without stress). BUT...now that the roving Tesla SC install team is free to move onto the next...

    COBOURG, COBOURG, COBOURG!!! If we actually get a Cobourg Supercharger this winter then Tesla will have a NEW image problem (instead of Teslas driving 95 km/h on the 401 all winter long), which is scores of Tesla owners doing this kind of dance all over Ontario!!!!!

    I'll back up Doug here yet again. The SC dot in Trenton/Cobourg needs to come back for the reasons mentioned here. I've driven my 60 all the way the east coast of Canada, and to New York City. Both trips were in the dead of winter (Christmas and March Break respectively) and we saw snow, high...

    Who in Canada will order the new P85D?

    Any way you slice it, lower-priced used Teslas bring a whole new type of buyer into the marketplace. The value proposition is huge when you think of what buying a 3-5 year old Tesla means. The car just doesn't age like a regular ICE, so buying a used Tesla is like getting access to a much...

    So how disappoionted are you that the D event wasn't also an X event?

    I'd go one step further and say that I took the event to mean that the Model 3 will be completely unbelievable with everything they just showed, working flawlessly in three years time once it has been road-tested with the D and X, and some things we can't even imagine. I will definitely be...

    Canadian Superchargers

    "Toronto to Kingston at 260 km is pushing that on the high side." Broken record comment response to Doug G...the best solution to that that long-ish stretch between Toronto and Kingston would be an SC in Coburg or Trenton or Belleville...just like they always use to have on the SC map until...

    Canadian Superchargers

    Everyone keeps saying Tesla is reading this thread, so I have to register my disappointment that, although there has been a Supercharger dot on the map in and around Trenton/Belleville on 401 East almost since the beginning of the Supercharger map... it is now gone. Nothing even in 2015. For...

    Has anyone willingly returned to the ICE-age?

    Al - I agree with you - every time I see a Prius....and man, oh man, do I see a lot of those these days....I think to myself 'that person will own a Gen 3'. Prius owners clearly a) don't mind paying extra for an enviro/efficient product, b) they have 'dipped their toes' into an electrified ride...

    Has anyone willingly returned to the ICE-age?

    I agree with the previous post that said they are still amazed every time they drive it. I feel the same way. I keep waiting for it wear off, but it doesn't . The car is just so different from the old ways. It gives me further reason to remove gas in all parts of my life. I switched to...

    Charging clicking

    I've also had this issue, kind of like Doug G. Tesla are coming next week to likely change the cable/end on my HPWC. I've already had my charge port changed once, and maybe they'll change it again. My theory is that there seems to be some kind of degradation over time with the cable and/or...

    Wireless/inductive charging

    It's pretty hard to imagine that Telsa has not been doing some R&D in this area as it would be such a fit for the overall user experience...if the charge losses were truly minimized, and the process was 100% safe. It would be a no-brainer to put a Tesla-specific solution in place for the...

    New York Hilton without any charging for cars

    I sure do know that! I've been doing all kinds of different work in NYC for years (but this trip was actually with my family) and I've driven to NYC many times pre-Tesla. I knew it would be wacky...and it was! For me, this unpredictability is part of the fun of doing electric car road trips...

    New York Hilton without any charging for cars

    I was disappointed by NYC charging in hotels. The place I used had a single wall plug (they said) but they had to run a 100 foot or maybe even 200 ft cord, and of course the Tesla wouldn't accept the charge. The bigger issue is what a rigamorole it tends to be to park any car in those...

    Any other S60 in Canada?

    Another 60 here in Toronto. I've had mine since March of last year and I'd say my usage stats are in line with the others here. I'm at about 25,000 kms now and I've successfully done (winter) road trips to the east coast of Canada, and New York City. I'm like everyone else on here in Canada...

    David Noland suggests Model S pedal placement is a safety hazard

    I had this happen once wearing big clunky winter boots. I was just stopping to turn left at a light and the misfire actually caused me to lurch into an (intersection) before the brake kicked in as has been described in this thread. It's not a big deal, but it is an issue and can be easily...

    PlugShare now optimized for the Model S

    A possible request that I had suggested on another thread was for Plugshare to not just list amps, but also volts. As an example from one of my recent long roadtrips, we used a lot of Sun Country chargers that tend to be listed as 'CS90/80 amps'. If a charger is 80 amps/240 volts, you can...

    PlugShare now optimized for the Model S

    I just recently did a trip from Toronto to NYC last week and we used Plugshare the whole way down, and the whole way back. We were pleasantly surprised to see that Plugshare had been updated for Tesla, as we tend to use it quite a bit. The optimized view for the Tesla is perfect, and it made...

    Canadian Superchargers

    I'm interested how many Ontario owners, or even Canadian owners, have ever actually tried a Supercharger. I had the chance to get down to NYC last week and try the one in Darrien and it was amazing. Doug G.....even my wife said she was blown away by it! The experience is seamless, quick and...

    Love my Tesla, but almost got stranded because of way out of whack mileage estimate

    I just got back from a roadtrip from Toronto to NYC last week and I was freshly reminded that a) cold is a killer b) rain/snow kills rolling resistance but when it comes to the Tesla (and any car I bet)....IT IS ALL ABOUT THE WIND. I did a stretch from Albany to the Darrien supercharger first...
