Why is there such a massive pricing discrepancy between Canada and the US? Honestly, it can't cost $15,000 more just to drive it across the border. Add to that our increased sales tax and the added luxury car tax it brings the base model close to $100,000!!! It doesn't make any sense, the exchange rate is only 1,04 today and has held to parity for the past 4 years... so it can't be hedging against currency fluctuation. If this is all gov't screwing us with customs duties and tariffs then I would like Tesla to provide a breakdown to this discrepancy so I can take this to my MP... this is beyond ridiculous. A $62,000 car in the US should not have a 25% increase to become a 77,000 car in another country unless some serious illegal business is going down.
