    Was doing some pricing on Tesla.com... for the model S and options I want, my Tesla would cost $90k US... if I were to buy it in Canada it'd cost $120,000 + 15% tax = $138,000.

    Even accounting for exchange rate, buying in US would still be much cheaper thanks to a stronger Canadian dollar

    And the navigation instructions are different. For example:
    The US version says "Turn right at the next street"
    The Canadian version says "Please turn right at the next street...Thank you"

    The Cdn version also includes the very necessary "pothole navigation" function. In the months of March to June, it automatically lifts the car to full height, limits speed to 10km/hr and carefully slaloms around the moonscape-like crater fields that we call roads up here.
