    Just got FW 2018.4.1 ec044c8 in both my S and X today, and was pleasantly surprised to find Canadian French as a new language option (as well as PSI units for TPMS and memory heated steering wheel).

    This has been a sore spot for many francophone Tesla owners here in Quebec.

    Better late than never I guess !

    That's fantastic! I'm sure it will be appreciated.

    Oooh - just noticed you said memory heated steering wheel. Awesome.

    This bodes well for Model 3 harmonization :)

    I hated the metric system ever since it came to Canada in 1974. The States was supposed to switch then too but didn't.

    Proving grounds will be how many swear words they included. I expect a full lexicon as an easter egg! :D

    Luddite. Metric commission was formed in 1971. Metric units were then gradually introduced. Speed limit signs were changed across Canada in 1977. Good riddance of the weird Imperial measurements. Did not even jive with US units.

    Tabernac!

    Was there previously a France - francais option? Or did francophone Canadians have to use English?

    I am also excited about the memory for heated steering wheel. This was an obvious thing and it took over three years.

    PSI on my tire pressure screen? Sweet.
    Meh on the heated wheel, I’d rather have memory on the wiper heater.

    French has been available to Europeans owners for years, but never in Canada up to now. English was the only choice in North America.

    This was fine for me, but irritating to many francophone owners here given the relatively small incremental change from French French to Canadian French (yes, swear words make up a significant part of this difference). Most of the written text on the displays would be identical (or nearly so), the spoken language would be different, but already widely available on the market.

    As Mr. Plugshare noted, the english nav spoken directions really massacre street names in La Belle Province (mine has been muted for 4 years).

    That would be French French.

    The Canadien colorful vernacular tends to be more religious-based (church accessories and consumables).

    Good on Tesla to make the change. They have only sold about 2000 vehicles in Quebec so far (as of Sep 30, 2017) but that will likely take off once the Model 3 starts shipping. Quebec has been the leader in Canada in EV adoption and appears to have the best charging infrastructure as well - plus the clean electricity to charge those cars.

    So just to confirm. A heated steering wheel will be available in Canada. And what is a "memory heated steering wheel"

    We are so use to our heated steering wheel in our leaf. We were actually thinking it would be a deal breaker for the 3. Just sayin.
