Tesla has announced the winning locations of their first round of Supercharger Voting, where owners could help decide where future Supercharger stations should be built. Unfortunately out of the list of 15 winning locations, none of them were in Canada.

Back in October Tesla launched the first ever Supercharger Voting session, which included a long list of potential locations, including 17 in Canada. Several of these locations were quite popular during the 3 month voting period, including Ottawa, and three locations on Vancouver Island, which all

The rules around the which sites would be selected as winners was vague, and as we pointed out in October, Tesla could pick the top 5 locations per country, or they could just limit it to the top 10 locations around the world with the most number of votes.

Unfortunately they went with neither of those options and selected the five locations that had the most votes in North America, Europe, and Asia (they apparently forgot about their Middle East category).Since the number of Tesla owners in the US outnumbers the number of owners in Canada by a significant margin, all of the Canadian locations didn’t stand a chance.

Tesla is doing it all again with the Winter voting session, and this time there are 39 locations in Canada, but if the same rules are followed as the first round the chances are high that none of them will be selected as a winner.

You can vote in the latest round here. Like last time voting will last for 3 months, and you are allowed to vote up to 5 times, but not for the same location.

Here is list of winners from the Fall 2022 Supercharger Voting session. They have all been added to Tesla’s Supercharger map and are showing an estimated opening date of Q2 2024.
