    “It is important to note that with such tremendous gains, Tesla did not necessarily conquest customers from other electric vehicle OEMs, but instead, brought new customers from outside the electric vehicle market to grow the current EV customer base,” wrote Ben Garden for IHS Automotive.

    'The Canadian auto market is around one-tenth the size of the U.S. by volume, and Tesla is undoubtedly bolstered by backorders, but it keeps expanding its Canadian footprint, and its popularity has kept new orders coming as Tesla is also expanding to Europe and Asia.'

    I'm US but agree 100% I think Tesla needs to move Canada SC up the priority ladder from current status. It's not only an important market, it's very conducive to SC benefit. The good news looks like end of 2014 puts SC in a pretty good footing. Hang in there canada brothers!

    I think JP White said it very well in his comment:

    So true! But if we keep up this buying pace, we can't be ignored for long. On the bright side, our 3G will work down there (so I've been told - mine arrives in Feb) whereas their screens go blank coming up here (so I've read). I live on the west coast a few blocks from the border and we go down to the States a lot so thanks go to Tesla for that perk!

    I live in South Surrey so hello neighbour. The 3G does work in both Canada and the US although you will find many pockets around SS/WR where the reception is very poor and gets dropped. Not a Tesla problem though - just poor local wifi infrastructure.

    " Since launching in 2012 it achieved 20-percent market share that same year compared to Nissan’s 40 percent and Mitsubishi’s 31 percent, and for 2013 it’s now at 43 percent, surpassing Nissan’s 35 percent and Mitsubishi’s 11 percent. "

    43 % of what ? What is the total number of sold EV´s in Canada ?

    Indeed! And Canada is easy. It's a one-highway country; just supercharge the TCH and we're all set to go. I note in the supercharger map not only is there no coverage in atlantic canada, but most of the region isn't really even included in the map...it's just cropped out! :D Maybe they assume nothing of any interest or consequence happens here - that we're basically the Wyoming of canada. It's a correct assumption, but still... :eek:

    If the Ontario and Michigan network was complete, I wouldn't have had to rent an ICE to go to Chicago this past weekend! The original plan was for "Fall 2013".
