    Let's hope that when the Model 3 arrives in 2019, Tesla will have enabled a whole lot more SC's across Canada and a few more in the States such as northern Alabama and southern Texas, to make Tesla viable for anybody.

    Well, Elon announced, at the Model 3 reveal, the doubling of superchargers and quadrupling of destination chargers prior to 2019, so let's hope he makes good on that promise.

    I think he may have even said by the end of 2017! It would be safe to assume that the higher than expected reservations would result in the same number again (ie. triple what there is now) by the end of 2019, if not sooner.
