Model Y should be $6500 cheaper in Canada

@leafian nice catch, I've never noticed the difference in how the destination fee is handled. They must be forced to include it in the base price in Canada and not in the US?
In 2010, Ontario passed a law that advertised car prices must include freight,PDI, and air conditioning tax.
I think that was eventually adopted by most provincial governments as well.

If you're going to compare prices, you need to compare them both with or without destination charges.
$53,990 in the US does not include $1200 in destination charges.
$69,990 in Canada includes $1390 in destination charges.
Using your exchange rate with destination charges, the US price is $69,400 in CDN, which is almost the same price as here.
the US price increases makes me feel better about current CAD Model Y pricing. What would make me feel even better would be to see the CAD strengthen in value again to BELOW 1.2 making our price in Canada more competitive VS US.
