    Just thought I'd start this thread for us Ontarians in the forum... If there are any of you out there :)

    We could use this space to talk about current, future and rumoured/wanted Supercharger locations and what surrounds them.

    Feel free to share any insider info you might have or any locations you would like to see a couple stations at.

    For starters, I hope to see Superchargers in Ottawa! On Tesla's website, it shows one that is supposed to open in 2017... Let's hope...

    Hi Tesla addict,

    Well there's two of us anyway!

    I would also love to see a supercharger in Ottawa. I stay in Pembroke and can just manage a return trip to Ottawa but its tight. Only other access is the destination chargers but there are only two of them in Ottawa. If others want to use HWY17 (the trans Canadian) then many people North East of Ottawa must be stranded in Canada because they can't get to the US border without an overnight and 6 hours on a destination charger that they can't bank on. Come on Tesla! How about a supercharger in Canada's capital city.

    Hey Patch!

    Yeah, I'm surprised there is nothing in our beautiful nation's capital (yet). However, according to the Tesla Supercharger map for 2017, there should be some in the Ottawa/Gatineau area... There was also a rumor about a gallery opening downtown but I haven't heard anything else than that.
    I'm sure with the Model 3, Canada will have more and more Service Centers, galleries and Superchargers. Can't wait!!

    I just ordered a Model X, for June delivery. I'm all for an Ottawa supercharger.

    Congrats on the order and I hope you enjoy it! But yeah, Tesla owners would greatly benefit from a Supercharger in Ottawa.

    I'm very happy that there's a Kingston supercharging, although realistically, I'll likely seldom use it, as our vehicle does not include free supercharging (I believe it will be $0.12/kwh). Our home charging will be lower cost ($0.078/kwh). Have you read that Tesla is shifting towards pushing destination charging over supercharging? With the influx of Model 3 owners, of which there will undoubtedly large numbers, Tesla ostensibly has concluded that predominant reliance on Superchargers is not the best way forward.

    Yeah I don't blame you for using your home charger more often than a Supercharger. To be fair, they're intended for long range trips, not everyday use...

    But yes I heard that! They're supposed to quadruple their Destination Chargers to 15,000 and double Superchargers to 7,000 by the end of 2017. I think that announcement was made last March during the Model 3 unveil.
