I've got to disagree. Interstate was named for a type of highway, just as the now-defunct Avenue was named for a type of street.
The coast-to-coast Canadian equivalent to Interstate is Transcanadienne, or Trans-Canada. I think the French spelling is more appropriate in this case. Who cares if it's off-putting to us Americans? We won't be buying them, since we have the Interstate.
By the way, I still think the Interstate is so-called because that's the best place to drive them. Now, if they could come up with an all-wheel-drive version called the Backroads?
