Hurray! With this I can make it from Naubinway, MI with just a short stop in Sault Ste Marie, where I stop at the Delta hotel and charge while I run over to the shopping mall across the street to pick up a Canadian SIM card from Bell. It used to be a bit of a reach from SSM to Sudbury, and the Chademo chargers along that stretch aren't always reliable. Now it should be quite easy, only 233 miles.

I wouldn’t be so surprised if the SSM and Blind River SCs are currently under construction. They’ll probably all go online at the same time, so I don’t think there’s anything to worry about range-wise.

Not sure which cell carrier you use, but with Verizon, talk and text in Canada are now FREE. The only thing that sucks is data is severely throttled after some trivial amount is used (like .5 GB/day or something), so you really need to only use the internet very minimally for stuff important to your travel.

I'm not sure about other cell carriers but I know Canada (and many other countries) have been FREE with T-Mobile for quite some time.

I have T-Mobile and yes, it's "free" in Canada, but the data rate is slow and the coverage is poor. I've only needed it for the data to use the Chademo chargers (pay by phone app). But that's becoming less and less necessary with each SuperCharger that gets built. Sometimes I still use the Chademos though, just for fun or convenience, e.g., I often stay at the Le Voyageur Inn in Mattawa and there's a Chademo charger literally just across the street.

I just called the Espanola Petro-Canada and they confirmed that their Chademo charging station is now open.

Well, I'm glad for that, and glad the charger at their station in Wawa is open, but why not SSM? That's the one that's really needed. It's 462km/287mi from Wawa to Espanola so it's not as if any EV, save for perhaps a Tesla, can make that stretch.

I was talking to a site supervisor for Petro-Canada while charging in Wawa on Wednesday. The SSM station is getting major renovations. The gas islands are being torn down and rebuilt along with part of the building. The chargers are going in as part of the Reno. So it will take quite a while.

Thank goodness for the Petro Canada DC charger. None of the KSI chargers at the ScotiaBanks seem to work for me any more. This one really saved me (that and some hyper-miling).
It’s coming slowly but I have been waiting for them to make the trek out west. Maybe by next summer I can work my way into the Rockies.
