    The 'Shop' pricing is now in CDN $. For instance the Tesla wall connector is now priced at $664 CDN instead of $500 USD. 32.8% much higher than the actual exchange rate.

    Luckily, Tesla has not yet blocked the importation of accessories from the U.S. (unlike the cars --- Grrrrr!)

    Wow glad I bought one a few months ago. That's a HUGE increase.

    To be fair to Tesla - that is exactly where the exchange rate was a month ago. The C$ has gotten a lot stronger in the last few weeks. Hopefully they will update their prices soon to more like the current 1.26 exchange rate

    I agree. The runup is recent and significant enough I believe to trigger across the board CDN price decreases next time they review.

    Did you buy from a service center or online?

    Service center. My car was in for service so I asked them to throw one in the trunk.

    Your avatar picture... Calabogie Motorsports? Looks like the entrance to Quarry.

    Good catch! Never got a chance to actually look at the various rocks except for a track walk. Spent 10 years tracking a 2003 Supercharged Mustang Cobra. Mucho suspension/safety upgrades. Stock engine. Did about 70 track days. Piggy backed on the Toronto Trillium BMW club at Mosport and the Ottawa BMW club at Calabogie. Probably 10 days full track Calabogie. Shannonville as well. Raced bikes at Mosport in the early 70's. Calabogie absolutely my favourite track.

    Nice! I run a stock car (converted NASCAR) in the local Platinum Challenge races at Calabogie. Been going for about 6-7 years now. Excellent track and facilities.

    Do you know if they now ship from Canada? I ask because you will need to add custom clearance fees and taxes to the purchase price.

    You can get the Tesla Wall Charger through a service center. Thats the only way you can get the $500 rebate for it in Ontario. You can't get the rebate till you have a VIN # and must apply within 3 months so don't buy it early if you want the rebate. Cant get the rebate if you order from the online store.
