    It's not on Tesla's Supercharger map yet, but it is operational. It's located at the new Tesla Sales & Service Center.

    This is just awesome news. Dinner in Montreal, here we come!

    If you visit by Sunday, you can see the Montreal Auto Show. Naturally, the most swamped booth is the one with the P85D.

    Awesome. Too bad they only have two bays, but even if you have to wait in line it'll still be far faster than anything in Montreal.

    Going on Saturday with the family to try it out! Montreal owners, I know it's exciting to have a SC in your city, but kindly give more priority to the visitors... Please! :)

    Yeah... I was hoping to go on a summer road trip to Toronto and Montreal. The previous version of the future supercharger map had me worried it would come later rather than sooner. I worried for nothing :rolleyes:

    I had to try them tonight. They're not really Superchargers but perhaps just pretty good chargers. It maxed out at 84 amps, 347 volts giving me a charge rate of about 160 km/h. That's a long way off from the nearly 600 km/h I have charged at other SuperChargers. My car was warmed up and charged about the 30% level so it wasn't my battery causing the slow down. Hopefully they'll up the charge later.
    The HPWC are indeed 80 amps, 240v now, about two thirds the charge rate of the SC.

    Are you sure someone else wasn't charging on the other paired stall? That would explain the reduced charging rate.

    Hmmm. That's surprising. Perhaps in response to the ambient temp.

    OUCH! Please let us know if someone else was using the other stall.

    I'm pretty sure I was the only Tesla in the parking lot at 12:30 am. I tried both stalls and the result was the same. I also tried a couple HPWCs just to be certain. I saw crappy charge rate like this in Connecticut at some of the earliest installed SC's. Ambient temperature was minus 10. I've charged colder with a higher amperage. I'll find out today what happened.

    Could be that there wasn't enough electricity in the Quebec grid at that point in time....

    Maybe there's a reason it's not on the map/officially open yet - like they don't have some of the hardware in place/turned on.

    Is that just what you were told by the Tesla personnel or did you actually achieve full power?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Just call the general Tesla number (1-877-79TESLA).

    I'm sure they can connect you to the relevant department.

    I live 2 hours away from Montreal, and "charge" there often.

    The so-called SuperCharger is a joke there, for 2 reasons:

    1) there is only two stalls (sorry for my english), whereas we are a population of about 3M around Montreal, and many Tesla Owners, plus many tourists
    2) the charge rate/speed is quite often ridiculous... gaining 170 km per hour often...
    ... I could also add that it is badly located.

    Tesla NEEDS to add a new site, easily reachable (think dix30, or corner of highway 40 and papineau), and much more stalls.

    I drove from Montreal to 2 hours north of Toronto last weekend, and all SC - Cornwall, Kingston, TO, Barrie were a charm. When I came back to Montreal, my rate was 245 km per hour... a joke...

    I love my Tesla. Not my SC...
