Canadian pricing is out:
$64,500for base 40kWh model, Model S with the 60 kWh battery pack and 85 kWh battery pack will start at $75,200 and $85,900 CAD respectively. Base will have heated seats and decor included.
I am floored, you can't imagine my deception level following that announcement. Truly have the impression of being screwed here. Huge mistake from Tesla.
GB is stating that they took a really straight forward approach: "Canadian base prices start with U.S. pricing, plus 6.1 percent for import duties and an additional 1.5 to 2 percent, depending upon the model, for incremental transportation costs and country specific business expenses. The total is then adjusted using the current mid-term currency exchange rate."
Sorry but I am very familiar with the matter and the 6.1% duty doesn't apply to cars built in the Canada-USA-Mexico as part of the Free-Trade-Agreement. Only applies to cars sold in the US for example coming from Japan. So it should have said 6.1% more margins..... And doing straigh math 65,400 - 57,400 is 14% more than the 57,400 US price. Unfair
Stopping here to dry my tears and calm down
