    I predict that once we get past this Q1 deadline and Tesla announces mediocre production numbers that miss their targets (1,500 / week?), they'll begin shipping to Canada to limit the US volume so as to extend the rebate for US buyers while pumping out cars and adding much-needed operational income. They already sell Ss and Xs here, so I can't imagine there's an inordinate amount of paperwork and / or processes to add / implement.

    Sooo, any guesses when we see the first Canadian invite? I'll start:

    April 20th

    I'm predicting any day now for invites, with first deliveries targeted for Mid April. I have my reasons for this timeline ;)

    I've heard the same thing (direct from a friend at HQ), the target is March for first Canadian invites. Might get delayed a bit, but I'll be very surprised if it takes until July.

    The consensus seems to be that it's imminent, so I'll go with July 1st too. Honestly, I would think that was fantastic! You hang around these forums long enough and you learn that what everyone thinks, tends to be too good by half to actually come true.

    I guess it depends on what you set as your chosen configuration. I set AWD and big battery so I can't see myself being invited before next year, and I'm fine with that. I can't imagine wrestling with an electric car that is RWD with all that torque. Would be a shame not to put the power down. The Model 3 big battery RWD still rips to 60 mph in 4.6-4.9 seconds. AWD 75 battery will surely be more like 4.2.

    My prediction is same as April. Tesla don’t want to risk the rebate after election. The best is to ship to Ontario as much as before June. Ontario for sure has the biggest number of reservations in Canada.

    I am taking the over on July 1. I doubt that many folks in Tesla know or care about the Ontario election, and if they do they think about it they think you are talking about Ontario, California.

    But I hope I am wrong.

    I’ll take the under. Too many sales at risk with the loss of the rebate.

    For what it’s worth, Canadian prices are apparently set. $45600 for base price, $64100 for first production LR+PUP. You can find this on the reservation FAQ page.

    CHAdeMO charging is more important in Canada.

    The CHAdeMO adapter doesn't work currently with the 3, but an over-the-air update is supposed to change that soon.

    Not sure how that pricing works.... Base exchange works out to 1.303, but the 14k usd in upgrades for the initial offering at 19.5k cdn is much higher at 1.393. Am I missing something?

    Work out add 1.35% after exchange, you will get LR+PUP at 64100 which stated at FAQ.
