Why the price discrepency between Canadian and US car?

Why the price discrepency between Canadian and US car?

I just received my confirmation paperwork to sign and I see that the price difference between the car I configured and the price now quoted is $15,000.

I know that $7500 is the US Federal green rebate, but what the heck is the other $7500 for? It can't be a currency thing.

Anyone else in the Great White North confused?

OK I guess I found the answer. It covers the import duty in the cost. Had me wondering.

hi, what was your reservation number? and are you general production or sig?

just want to see how far they have come in getting P reservations to start configuring.

I was under the impression that the import duties were already included in the Canadian pricing (somewhere around 6% more than US due to not qualifying under NAFTA because of foreign content contained in the battery pack). Was your original configuation done under the US site? I sure hope so, because I'm so very very close in convincing my wife to move forward with a reservation, but if there is that much of a price difference than what I'm selling my wife on, the deal will be off! If your in Ontario, there is an $8500.00 credit that you can take right off the cost or apply for the rebate after you pay full price.

there is a post from George B himself that explains the pricing.
