    Indeed, a dealer in Rawdon (Bourgeois Chevrolet) started concentrating his business around selling EV and PHEV vehicles a couple of years ago. As a result, there's a hype for EVs in that region and a relatively large concentration of them. (The first Bolt in Canada was delivered there, IIRC.) Not sure how many Teslas, though. This is just an hypothesis, but as a result of this hype, the shopping mall in Mascouche may have participated financially to have the SC there (or otherwise offered good conditions). At least, that's what happened for the Magog SC. In that case, I know from someone who knows the owner of the location, that the guy had to put quite some of his own money to get the SC there.

    The free toll on the A25 bridge is possibly the biggest government incentive in QC at the moment on Tesla purchases. This makes anywhere along the A25 an interesting location. Access to the carpool lanes on A25 helps too.

    16 stalls, Mascouche? Having hard time sometimes to follow Tesla's rational o_O

    Québec city 10 stalls when it will be one of the busiest SC (second after MTL Ferrier / St-Laurent SC) in the province and Mascouche with 16 stalls (+ just near the Carrefour Laval future SC at only 24 km appart)

    That will be an OK place but will never be that busy for a 16 stalls SC place...

    Just so weird...

    I'm sure they're future proofing the place for when all the Model 3s arrive. The initial cost is probably not that much more so if they have the space to do it they may as well.

    Wouldn't they future proof QC City as well? Makes no sense to me. Mascouche is pretty empty...

    I live like 5 minutes from there I and see Tesla at least 10 times per day, so I would say yes there is a high demand here. I find the location weird. It's an awful parking lot. I thought it was going to be at Charlemagne at the 40/640 intersection. I guess they changed their mind and went for 25/640 intersection.

    Unless for the new «urban SuperChargers», current SuperChargers aren't intented for locals but for long trips only...

    From Tesla's site:

    «The Supercharger network is your answer to long distance travel. Superchargers enable travel to your favorite destinations and charge Model S and Model X in minutes.»

    So, still no rational here for 16 stalls at Mascouche VS only 10 at Québec city (that should have been there 3 years ago already!)...

    Maybe they will install urban superchargers INSIDE Quebec city...

    B. Lamarche posted a photo of preparation for construction on a Quebec LEAF site. An area adjacent to Tim Horton's has been fenced off with some equipment inside.

    And?

    Doesn't solve the problem that Lévis SC has only 10 stalls...

    The charger is well located if you are doing a trip up to places like Joliette or Rawdon, but even better for people coming back from Quebec, let's say, which live in places just north of Montreal

    If that is the case they haven't accounced anything yet but there is one scheduled for Leborgneuf, just north of QC, in 2018.

    IMG_0152.JPG Are they're going to be the new Superchargers that Tesla recently released?

    I noticed that both Laval and Mascouche changed to "Construction" status yesterday. :)

    How does an urban supercharger differ from a non-urban one?

    non- :D

    OK, seriously,

    Urban Supercharger:
    - all-in-one charger unit
    - supplies 72kW max
    - no power-sharing

    Regular (Non-urban) Supercharger:
    - Separate Supercharger cabinet and 2 pedestals
    - Supplies 120kw/135kW max
    - Shares power between 2 cars
