    From the website floorplan it looks like Tesla is going to be there on the Exotics level again. (unless this is just last year's floorplan)

    Any chance we see a Model X at the show?

    Our club has over 40 volunteers helping Tesla talk to people at the show. ( 2 people, 3 shifts per day)
    I don't know for sure but feel there will only be 2 Model S and a chassis on display.
    The feeling is if Tesla had a display at the Detroit that the X would have been there and then logical to come to Toronto.
    But I suppose we could be surprised.

    The word is now out from Tesla (got my notice around 5 PM EST): Model X will be there with the S (at the auto show in Toronto opening in a few days and running until the 21st). Nicely done, Tesla! Vast crowds expected!

    Yeah, just got my email from Tesla announcing this. I'll bet that if they can get the word out, they'll draw people in who would not otherwise have attended.

    Also Tesla is daring enough to have real Model S owners at their stand to talk about the car they own.

    Yes we found out last night, awesome to hear!
    I think the booth will be really, really busy.
    This is the first time a production version will be on display anywhere.
    Look for us owners in black shirts and wearing our red club lanyards and nametags.

    I just got the email today. Just for this reason I'm going to the Auto Show for the first time in my life!

    Yep I got it. Make sure the box is ticked in your profile in MyTesla to receive updates.

    Box was not ticked in my profile. No wonder I did not get the Model X test drive invite as well. Almost missed getting the "your X is ready for delivery" email. ;)

    Dang it! Too bad I don't live in Toronto anymore, fingers crossed the X is coming to the Vancouver show too

    I have a feeling the Model X is going to be a real show stopper. Will any / all the cars be roped off?

    From the proposed floor plan, it does look like the X will be roped off.

    Well if I can't sit in it and touch it I might as well not bother going. Pictures will suffice.

    I really hope that isn't the case. I want to see inside the X, not just observe from a distance.

    I am driving my Model S down tomorrow. Where can I get that black shirt with red club lanyard and name tag. I'd love to have one. This will be my first trip to the auto show in over 20 years.
