I've been looking around for a while and haven't found information about how pricing is going to work in Canada (I'm talking about the Model S here). Since the CAN dollar is almost equal to the US dollar I would expect to pay 57,000ish (Minus the 8000$ incentive from the gov.) but I really doubt it'll happen.
I'm willing to pay 50,000 for a Model S, even tho it's a bit too much for my budget - it shows how bad I want a good looking eletric car. BUT, if we get screwed and pay 15%-20% more in Canada even if the the exchange rate is almost the same (PLUS the Federal AND the Provincial taxes, wich means you add another 15% to the final price...), I'm afraid I'll have to go with a Honda Fit EV, kinda my last resort.
Anyone else in the same situation? I live in Quebec.
Oh and are Leather seats optional? I'd rather have non-leather.
