    Hello, I went to Tesla Montreal to get more info about the Model 3 Standard Range. The sellers seems not to have all information how the car was reacting to the software reduced battery limits.

    Does anybody received the car?

    If yes, will charge time be reduced to get 100% or reacts like a 386km range car?

    Has anyone actually ordered one of these? Given the price difference, the SR+ is the way to go. The Canadian SR is a true compliance car, in that it only exists to satisfy an arbitrary government requirement. Nobody is expected to actually buy it.

    Wait. Are we looking at the same cars? The SR+ is $10K more. That's not an insignificant amount of cash.

    SR+ has AP included. So effectively SR+ is ~ CAD $4,700 more than SR which gives you double the range + fog light + maybe immersive sound.

    SR 45,000 + AP 4,000 = $49,000
    vs
    SR+ = $53,700

    You can get the SR - (150km) without AP. I had my old order SR (350km) ninja (no notification) changed to the SR- and price was 44,999.

    So yes it is 53700 - 44,999 which is a significant amount of money. Mind you lose a significant amount of range too.

    But with recommended charge from 20%-80% (multiple advisors said 80 even though I know website suggests 90). You are left with again -40% range on usual days... Just food for thought

    I'll actually be surprised if Tesla sells a single 150 km (90 mile) version. The US "Model 3 Standard Range" has 220 miles of range; would they sell a car with the same name on the same continent with a different range? It would be chaos.

    Speaking with one of the Montreal sellers, he told me he has sold 2 already. He says they delivered some from Tesla montreal... So there are some 150 km Standard Range car out there.

    I have never heard of much a buyer on any forum or Telsa group, so until we have proof I will continue to believe this is only a compliance car, not real.
    At least I presume you can charge the 150km model to 100% without any issue, correct?

    It is in Tesla's interest to pretend like they sold some. Otherwise the Canadian Federal government might be a little annoyed that a non-existent base model qualified the higher trim for the rebate.

    I would get it if I can upgrade AP and unlock range a week after delivery or something for sale price. BC will save $550 in tax. 12 vs 13% tax.

    I would be very careful about a buy now / unlock later plan. I've seen some threads musing that Tesla can't unlock the range, not because of technical issues obviously but because the Federal government wouldn't allow it.

    I figure it could make sense for someone out there... I’ve been fine with my leaf on 150km do the Tesla is basically a luxury version of that..

    One cool thing could be if they lock the voltage range so that you can supercharge to 100% without a taper.

    I’ve had that confirmed by an EV lobbyist group.

    Did you sign some sort of a disclaimer telling how the voltage (kWh) or range (150 km) will be limited?

    Correct, when Tesla software lock 60 on 75kwh car. You could get high Supercharge rate until the very end of the software limit.

    Tesla software would also balance the cell automatically, it will use every cell available. So theoretically the life span of the battery should be even higher than the "normal version".

    Looks like you've got another battery configuration to map out @Zoomit :eek: This one is going to be more rare than the MR. Can we assume this will share the SR+ charging profile, just truncated at around 38% SOC?

    What are we calling the Canadian SR for short? The SR minus?

    There is zero truth to the government not allowing them to upgrade the range after purchase. Tesla has made this choice as a business decision. They could have created a SR- and still allowed the US spec SR but that would make the US Spec SR too attractive. This is all about margins.

    That makes zero sense, think about what you are saying? I'm sure Tesla would love to take a $5k option and unlock an SR- to an SR, this has nothing to do with Tesla. The cost of the SR- and SR is the same
