    Started this thread to get it out of the rebate thread. Maybe we can continue it here. For reference:

    Ontario EHVIP Rebate for the Model 3 - Information Thread
    VIN are coming soon. I live in Maple, I have been seeing one truck a day delivering Model 3s to a local warehouse. They are here.

    Ontario EHVIP Rebate for the Model 3 - Information Thread
    Yes. Ontario maple. I just got my charger as well and the FedEx guy told me that he has been told the same from others in the neighbourhood.

    Ontario EHVIP Rebate for the Model 3 - Information Thread
    Model 3s for sure. I visited Tesla in Yorkdale two weeks ago Saturday just to see the model 3 in person and questioned the sales rep about them being in Ontario. He confirmed that they are here and stated that they are waiting for the Ontario government to approve the rebate before they start processing. Not sure how true this is but I will take it. I know everyone CAN’T wait . Although I am surprises the Lawrence store doesn’t have a model to showcase

    Really need some pics of one of these trucks.

    Don't want to get my hopes up only to have them dashed swiftly!

    With Tesla slow ramping and even idling the plant for a week, this would be extremely surprising. It’s 4 weeks from order for me today and I’m one of the early ones.

    As they say - Pics or it didn’t happen. :)

    I would like to see pics.. however this does make a lot of sense as a major Rail yard is in Concord and there are a few places where cars are stored.
    See:
    Dropped pin
    near Concord, Vaughan, ON

    Google Maps

    Or
    Dropped pin
    near Concord, Vaughan, ON

    Google Maps

    Could have some truth to it, but we need photos

    Careful, this is the same as trying to get into Area 51 to get UFO pictures.

    How long is it since the first Canadian Model 3s were configured? It is only about 4-5 weeks. And don't forget that the assembly line wad down for one week in each of March and April. And it would take several days, possibly a week, for the cars to get to the GTA. That timeline seems really tight.

    Maybe these were just taken from their built up inventory? Who knows how Canadian model 3s differ from their US counterparts

    The only physical difference between once car and the next is colour and wheel size. Everything else is software. It wouldn't be difficult for them to pull off the next car in the assembly line that matched a Canadian order once it came in.

    The storage lots at Fremont are constantly bursting at the seams. They have a lot of units built but can't truck them away fast enough.

    I was under the impression that certain parts needed french as well.. so some parts that have info on them would need new labels. Not sure.

    I am pretty sure that airbag labels have to be en francais. Upon importing I have heard of labels being printed on a label printer and stuck on the visors.

    Also a bit skeptical.. As much as I'd enjoy a "surprise, delivery is tomorrow!" message we need some lead time with our VIN to arrange financing/insurance so I don't think it would be a logical move by TM

    They absolutely do. But that's an easy fix that can be done at the "port" or at the service center prior to delivery.

    Good enough for me! Maybe it's an easy retrofit
