This was posted elsewhere, in a message about a chat with George Blankenship, but it would be of special interest to Canadians...

Second, I asked him about the Supercharger in the Toronto - Montreal corridor and he said that it would be WORKING this YEAR (probably 3rd or 4th quarter) !!! Wow ... it's getting near.

Judging by the crude map Tesla published of supercharger locations "within 2 years", there will be two (maybe not both right away?). One looks to be in the vicinity of Trenton, the other looks like Brockville. That would certainly facilitate convenient travel between Toronto / Ottawa / Montreal. The Brockville charger would also be handy for travel into the USA, since there are two crossings in the vicinity.

It would be nice to see something on the other side of Toronto... perhaps the London area. Looks like something going in near Detroit (based on the crude map), so London would facilitate drives right through to the US on either side of Toronto.

Agree...can't forget about those travelling west bound on the 401...

We need SC every 80 (130 km) to 130 (200 km) miles for those poor 60 kWh occasional long distance driver that paid $2500 with tx for the option ;-)

so Montreal, Brockville, Trenton, Toronto is great

We also need some SC on the TransCanada highway between Vancouver and Calgary and further east. Kamloops would be a good location as it should be reachable on a full charge (85kwh) from Vancouver. For now, I'll have to plan using the chargers Sun Country is setting up...

AMEN! Totally agree, we need more BC owners to push for this. It would open up a HUGE amount of the highly trafficed province!

Also @HTK do you have your car yet?

Also we have to take in account the cold temperature vs range. So Tesla may have to put them closer for that reason.

Merritt is a better option. Hope has a 90amp charger so a quick stop for a coffee would ensure you'd make Merritt where you could super charge. Either way that area is a good choice

I hope that with the reduced cold weather capacities that people have been reporting, that Tesla considers reducing the spacing between superchargers.How can we get the word out to tesla?

I think you just did. I understand that a number of Tesla folks lurk here.

HERE IS A GREAT RUMOR!!

According to «erichancox» on TM Forum «RUMORED SUPERCHARGER LOCATIONS», There is a SUPERCHARGER that is being built in Kingston right between Toronto and Montreal !!!

Here is his post:

«I just left the Tesla store in Toronto, and a supercharger station is being built in Kingston right now. It is an excellent location on the 401, right in between Toronto and Montreal. Over 10 million people live within Model S reach of this station, and it will eliminate "range anxiety" in what is one of the heaviest travelled corridors in North America.
Another one knocked out of the park!!»

WOW !!
:)

PS: If someone drives by Kingston, that would be great to get some pictures of the construction !!

Nice rumour. Wonder if it's true... also wonder exactly where it is???

Would do the job nicely for Ottawa to Toronto. You could just blast down the 416 full tilt to Kingston, power up, and off you go!

That would be a little far from Montreal; at 289 km that's pushing winter weather driving range, unless you really keep your speed down.

Heck, if we get confirmation it's there, I'll go down to Kingston just to try it!

Yea I was thinking about that but the SCH sc90 in Cornwall looks like it would be just the right place to top off if you find your energy usage was going to make it tight.

Yes, I wonder if it's too good to be true ... lets hope so !!

I count on you guys to confirm this with proof (pictures) !!
