    Not sure about the 129km/h in a 50km/h zone part though...

    (80mph in a 30mph)

    Please, it's not a dealership! Dealers are businesses that sell OTHER companies products. It's a Tesla store, just like it's an Apple store not an Apple dealer. Car buyers are used to calling the place where they buy cars "dealers" because that has been the business model for decades. Let's try to break that habit just as Tesla has broken the old business model. Would a moderator like to edit the title?

    however much we hate the designation, the title of this thread accurately reflects the title of the video it is presenting. Are you going to ask them to change it?

    Nope, but imo, by not correcting it here, one continues to perpetuate the confusion / habitual speak that some parties have (even here on TMC).

    That's a good idea. I went to the Montreal Gazette web site and emailed the reporter explaining this. Selling directly rather than through the auto dealers cartel is as disruptive as Tesla's technology, and one of my favorite things about the car.

    Update- already heard back from the reporter:

    Thanks for your note. I have made the change in the article but unfortunately the video is out of my control. Thanks for your email.

    Newscast from Quebec on the Montreal store.

    I don't parler français but they did show images of one the fires from last year.
