What do you guys think?
Elon Musk on Twitter
What I think is that when you convert the 687 day Mars year to Earth terms you get 2019.
I hope to be pleasantly surprised and see lots of Trans-Canada action this year, though.
That swift current supercharger is critical for me to escape Saskatchewan. Otherwise you will find me slow charging at 48amps for hours on end.
A medicine hat supercharger would be a bonus as well
If it ain't on the map, I'm not believing it. Especially considering in the past the map has been wildly optimistic of what's going to get done.
WTF?!!!!! This would be amazing. But I'm have a hard time believing it.
I wish it would be true.
I choose to believe. No reason they can't just step it up. Maybe someone at Tesla actually looked at the coverage in Canada. That and there must be good Model 3 numbers from canadians.
Don't believe it. Really, don't even hope. Not going to happen.
I think his maps don't include anything east of Quebec, like NB, NS, PEI, N&L. You know he's using an old map since it includes North Dakota.
Edit, took me a minute to find a reference Precede FARGO, N.D. Rand McNally Omits North Dakota, South Dakota and Oklahoma From New Atlas
Except it makes no sense for Musk to suddenly say this unless they've actually made some new decision. Or if 'trans-Canada' doesn't actually mean it. Hopefully some confirmation or details soon.
I believe Elon has good intentions of doing that, but there are no dots in Saskatchewan on their official map yet. This is not the first time he's said Swift Current will get a Supercharger in 2017. I'd really like to believe him but there are no dots on the map, 5 months after he first mentioned it.
The key word is "should" -- like, we should have had superchargers along the trans Canada highway by now. Or, we should have them this year. We won't -- but we should.
I rated that post as funny ... I really did LOL !
Small hope persists though.
I think there may be confusion here. The term transCanada means something specific to Canadians, but may be just a generalized vague term to a non-Canuck. Me, metaphorically I am from Missouri, or that certain Thomas from the New Testament. I will believe when I can see with my own eyes and touch with my own Tesla charge port.
Musk lived for a couple of years in Canada. Spent a summer at his cousin's farm just outside of Speedy Creek.
Elon spent a couple of years in Canada. He spent a summer at his cousin's farm just outside of Speedy Creek (nickname of Swift Current). His mother's from Regina.
Trans-Canada is a Canadian term. The fact that he knows it, tells me that he must have discussed it internally in a meeting or something. I personally have some hope, but having a hard time believing it.
You have to admit... it's an odd thing for EM to respond to if there's not something behind it. Out of all of the clamoring tweets out there, why would he choose to respond to that one?
But if there's something behind it, why is there nothing on the map - and zero in terms any hints of a massive SC roll out that would have to be taking place this summer? We haven't heard of a single shovel in the ground yet, anywhere in Canada this year.
I would be very happy if they just completed what they have already announced.
SK isn't that big an issue for installing the SCs on the T-Can. The route from Sudbury to Winnipeg is the issue and there is a whole of km to cover, especially when you consider the winter temps. That was discussed a month or so in this thread: Supercharging from Sudbury to Winnipeg?
I'm not seeing a dot on the map past Quebec, so I'm highly skeptical of this claim. I'd like to hope its happening, but I'm just not seeing it.
