    Hi Doug, Just touching base quickly here - since I think I lost track of you email in my client. Or - it's in the other Computer!

    We were wondering if EV Fest 2012 Warrants a drive down from Ottawa from you and a normal personal exhibitor arrangement. >> EV Fest 2012 Electric Vehicle Show Toronto's Electric Vehicle Festival > Exhibit

    Hi Doug! Any Chance you could join us for EV Fest 2012? Current Tentative Date is the second Sunday in September, 2012 - Sept. 9. Any conversations in the works with Queens U. regarding a Tesla Charging Point?

    Hello Jaff: I live in the Toronto area and work at Church and Bloor. I just received my Roadster on October 28 2010. I think I heard there are around 5 vehicles in Ontario. Mitch

    Hi Doug,

    Just you were the first to receive the Guv of Ontario's new $8,500 rebate, did you ask Hans how many Roadsters have been sold / leased in Canada?

  7. Wow.

    I've been driving it daily, and have only driven my SUV once a week just to make sure it doesn't seize up. But my commute to work isn't very far, so I've only racked up 2200 km!

I'm currently driving my Model S through its third Canadian winter. I thought it might be helpful to discuss some of my "lessons learned" about driving the Model S in the cold.

Model S Performance in the Cold

You can walk up to your totally cold soaked car, hop in, and drive away. You don't need to warm it up. It won't chug and cough like a gas car; it'll just glide away. The
