New Canadian 5000$ subsidy! But, not for Tesla... base price too high

New Canadian 5000$ subsidy! But, not for Tesla... base price too high

Hi, Canada government launch today a new EV program allowing 5000$ subsidy to the purchase of a new vehicle.

But, all Tesla models are not candidate for it, base price too high. Has to be 45 000$ to be eligible.

@TeslaCanada, can you module something where M3 base price can be 45 000$ to be eligible? Add afterward "mandatory" options bringing it to the actual price / configuration level?

Looking for a 2nd EV and a second M3 (owner of a M3 AWD), but wife is grumbling about loosing the 5000$ and is looking outward... Bolt, Kona, Leaf +...

Thanks

Yes , when announced the cutoff was 2000 below the base (rich people) Tesla but 200 above the base Chevy Bolt. No coincidence there. It's a sad joke from a sad joke of a PM.

When USDCAD changes in the loonie's favor and the Canadian prices drop below CAD 45k will the Model 3 be added to the list?
