Tesla sues Ontario government, alleging customers denied incentives | CBC News
unreal how others receive rebates but not Tesla. The comments below the article are full of hate.
Yeah lots of hate in the comments, I think a lot of commenters didn’t read the article. I was under the impression that the Cap&Trade paid for the EV program and not the taxpayers. I ordered my 3D with no rebate in NB, it,s still a good investment if there ever was such a thing when it comes to autos. I spend $300 in gas a month and my insurance premiums will drop. My EV rebate is called TSLA stock, I sold my shares last week and will buy again if price drops below $320.
That comment section is cancer. It is truly amazing how the average citizen more and more just think with their feelings versus facts. It is very sad to see this becoming more of a norm.
You can read Tesla's arguments here: Tesla sues ONtario
Some interesting tidbits...
* Tesla employs 170+ people in Ontario
* "hundreds of Tesla Canada's Ontario customers" affected
Going to lose.
The policy has the excuse that they need to give dealers time to clear inventory, while direct sales have a shorter path to the customer.
That they mentioned Tesla is because they're basically the only direct sales company.
The Wynne EV Rebate program was fully paid for by the polluting industries!
$300 million dollars collected to re-distribute to various environmental initiatives:
Solar home panels, eco thermostats, cycling infrastructure, EV vehicles (under $75,000),
Geothermal heat pumps and other programs.
Perhaps, someone here has better incite into what other environmental initiatives were included.
"Buck a Beer" Premier will be wallowing in his beer tears once this goes through the Provincial Court
and this costs the Ontario taxpayers BIG!
Tesla indirectly helps employ tens of thousands in Southern Ontario through our integrated auto supply chain. My company's networking modules are spec'd by Tesla - so all OEMs that got the projects to build the Model 3 line got huge contracts and had to buy our stuff and build the machines that assemble the car.
The average Ontarian does not know this, nor is it in any of the new stories.
I don't think it is the average citizen posting those comments, or at least I sincerely hope it is't.
This is relevant because...?
Dealers are eligible if they have a car on order not just EVs on their lot.
If you think the entire argument is hinged on this leap I think you need to go back and carefully read the claim. As an excuse, it would at best be a mitigating factor and in this case, arguably very minor to irrelevant.
Did anyone watch this gem yet? He is so misinformed, it hurts.

Didn’t know that it was a 16k rebate nor that I’m a millionaire...wow
Spin it Mr. Beerman...Spin it.
Now, i'm on the side that thinks the rebate in Ontario is too high and needs to be lowered (not removed) so more people can take advantage of the rebate but holy shite, this guy is an out of touch moron. I feel sorry for you guys in Ontario having Trump Jr as your Premier.
Yeah... this is why I'm so pessimistic about politics lately. I understand ppl want change, and I understand governments need to be periodically changed for the health of the democracy. But please, why can people not be the slightest bit educated on what that change actually is?
To name a few major players in Ontario that helped build the Model 3 line. Magna, Linamar, Centerline. . . And these players have smaller suppliers that tendrils out across Ontario, Quebec, and the US.
That cash burn Tesla's going through - We're receiving a chunk of it in Ontario.
Misinformed means he doesn't know/understand. I don't for a second think that's the case here. He's run a business for 20 years, he's not that dumb. He's just learned how to spread lies and misinformation from trump.
Im doing my part to fight the FUD.
