Just heading out in the morning - Peterborough to Calgary. Just saw the note about the Whistler supercharger (which will come later in our trip). Anything of note between Ontario and Alberta?
Avoid the night driving in northern Ontario. Moose collisions cause the drivers death and injure the moose. If you must drive at night, slow it down. moose can step out of the ditch at the last second and you have no time to stop.Nothing between Ontario to Alberta to note, from my trip through that stretch recently.
I would double check the status of your next planned supercharger location stop prior to leaving your current location though.
Some were temporarily out of order. While they seemed to quickly go back on line, you wouldn’t want to arrive with little charge only to find out it’s still temporarily out of Order.
Have fun. I would also plan to drive through all of northern Ontario during the day.
The scenery is amazing. You’ll miss it, if you drive it at night.
I have a model Y on order and am planning on picking it up at the Calgary service center and taking my wife to Jasper for a couple days. My question is can it make the trip from Jasper to Edmonton without having to stop for charging?
Best bet is to use abetterrouteplanner.com, and make sure you hit the "Detailed" button and enter things like expected average temperature, road conditions, relative speed (if you tend to drive over the limit), etc.
Model Y is still relatively new so the data may not be as accurate for it, but it suggests that trip is a bit tight (but possible). You'd need to charge to as close to 100% as you can before departing Jasper (at least 95% would be nice), and take it easy if you want to arrive with minimal added stress.
I have been looking at a better route planer and it is tight, leaving Jasper with 100% and driving the speed limit gets me home with an estimated 7% range left, that seems a bit tight to me so I thought that I would ask. I can't wait to have a super charger in Edson to make it a lot less nerve wracking. I guess the other option is to stop for food at Ricky's and charge there for a bit just to reduce the range anxiety. Thanks for your suggestions, I will report back once I have the car and can see what it can actually do.
Well, there's a 250KW supercharger "IN" Wawa. But really, why are you asking? Surely you can find a supercharger map using google. Plugshare.com has maps of chargers, Tesla ones and others.heading east from Calgary to Toronto in 2 weeks, any superchargers down to note?
Planning on Calgary -16h-> Winnipeg overnight -14k-> Wawa'ish overnight -13h->Toronto
also can anyone think of a destination charging spot near Wawa?
If you look at supercharge.info you'll see going to Winnipeg then down into US to Texas, will be very doable soon, long before your November trip. . Even if Pembina ND isn't ready, the SC in Grand Forks is under construction and you should make it from Winnipeg to Grand Forks if you leave Winnipeg on a full charge and take it easy on the speed and heat .Trying to figure out if a road trip from Saskatoon to Dallas is reasonable in November, but the Supercharger network gaps between the TransCanada and the northern US is causing me angst. Anyone have experience breaking through that dead zone in early Winter? I'm sure there are L2 chargers that I could limp through with, but I'm trying to understand how painful that's likely to be.
ABetterRoutePlanner basically says "can't get there from here" or "stop at a Nissan dealer in Grand Forks for a 4 hour charge" depending on what parameters I put into it.
Thanks, I'd seen that it was "coming Q3" but didn't realize it was actually under construction already. I tend to not put a lot of stock in things that are "coming soon." At one point there was supposed to be a SC in Saskatoon before the end of 2020 after allIf you look at supercharge.info you'll see going to Winnipeg then down into US to Texas, will be very doable soon, long before your November trip. .

Agreed, the Tesla web site “coming soon” is rarely right in the end…. Measured in “Elon time” . I use supercharge.info , it’s crowd sourced but really reliable.Thanks, I'd seen that it was "coming Q3" but didn't realize it was actually under construction already.
