    Yeah, I posted that over in the CHAdeMO thread earlier too. I've been waiting for some Ontario news that was promised to me some time ago as well, but it seems to have gone dark!

    Right on VW and BMW! The more chargers we have the more EVs will be on the road!

    Assuming those drivers enjoy charging enough to handle the high charge:drive ratio, and very few drivers want to do it at the same time.

    They really don't have a clue, do they.

    What they are planning to do is helpful to all the non-Tesla vehicles. Somebody has to step up and provide a meaningful network of corridor chargers so people can drive their EVs between cities. Nobody is going to drive over 500 miles in a 80 mile EV, but a 200 mile trip is tolerable once in a while.
