    100D is only 3k more in the US than the 90D, but in Canada it's $7,500 more.... Am I missing something?

    539km range though, wow.

    Wow! I just played with the range estimator for the 100D. If you set it for 70 kmh and 30C 865 km range! :)
    How wide is Saskatchewan? :cool:

    Will give it time and hope this was just an error. But given other countries outside the US are seeing similar things, I fear this is a method to get rid of remaining 90D stock. Yes, I am speculating, and I hope it's not true as this would be very anti Tesla: it's akin to giving a certain group of people a 'discount', or early discount, effectively.

    I thought Tesla had always given Canadians a fair exchange rate? This is definitely odd.

    It is a matter of both exchange rates and import duties and taxes. Remember when the X came out it was only $5,000 more than the equivalent S in the US. Here it was significantly more.

    No exchange and duties turns 3k into 7.5k tho.... Maybe other prices are going up again soon? It should be 4 to 4.5k more than the 90D here.

    Well, let's see. I just priced out the price difference between the same S and X in US vs Canada. In Canada, it is an $11,000 difference. In the US it is a $6,000 difference.

    There is an excess weight tax on the X due to how heavy it is.

    Don't forget the wind. You could do Calgary to Winnipeg, but then only winnipeg to Regina. Maybe swift current SC if lucky

    Have all the prices gone up? I was always playing with a configuration including tax. First I came up for a certain configuration at $183K that same configuration is now more than $200K!

    WIth these prices it is not fun anymore...

    There will be a price increase coming next week. The 100D price already has the increase built in.
    Not sure how an increase is justified with the way exchange rates have been going.

    Isn't there some kind of penalty added due to not enough North American parts, namely the batteries? It was my understanding that was what accounted for the price disparity, and that would end when the Gigafactory came online and started making batteries for the cars.

    6.1% NAFTA duty on "foreign content" aka: Panasonic 18650 cells made in Japan.

    Gigafactory cells should eliminate this duty but haven't been able to get firm confirmation on this from Tesla.

    The duty is on the entire cost of the car. The vehicle must be 60% NAFTA-made, based on costs of inputs, or it doesn't qualify. Gigafactory will definitely eliminate this tax.

    He can kill NAFTA by Presidential order... in which case it reverts to the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement.

    There's also speculation that gigafactory cells weren't going to be used in the S/X, just in powerwall/model 3 (gigafactory only making the new cell format and the S/X tied to the old 18650)

    There was a rumour (warning from some sales people) that prices were going up on 26 January 2017. Did this happen?
