    No. Canadian launch is March or April.

    I went to the OpenRoad Toyota, in Richmond, over the weekend to see if they had a demo. This explains why there was none. Is there much excitement in Canada about this car?

    The lighting on the road is very good. Low beams do a very good job. High beams are somewhat too high, not too bad, and I may try an adjustment. My Mazda CX-9 has the best lights I've used, and the Prime is a close second.

    The switch in the Auto position is both daytime running lights (inner pair; highs at reduced intensity) and automatic-on when dark & auto-high.

    I haven't heard much but one of my local dealer says he's got a few pre-orders. He didn't specify the number.

    No worries. It will be funny as I am up in WA and BC on many weekends, where the car is not released yet. Really excited to try the plugins everywhere. It's not the same as those darn superchargers!

    Yeah isn't OR one of the states that are actually getting units?

    No. They are building superchargers up here though. You can't quite drive across the country (you have to cross the border and head through the Midwest)

    OR is getting units.

    I was saying that charging the prime will not be the same as using the super chargers.
