    I just noticed this on the Transport Canada website. Version 2.x Roadsters can now be imported to Canada!

    TESLA MOTORS

    I'm torn between being thrilled to have access to all North American Roadsters, and depressed to see my car's value immediately converge to US levels. :smile:

    Definitely mixed feelings there. Mind you, it would still be necessary to convince Tesla Motors to make the mods for you - or find some aftermarket way of doing the needed mods for Canadian spec.

    Given how busy the service centers are - my Roadster's annual service is overdue and every time I've asked nothing has happened - this may be more theoretical than practical.

    Tesla probably did the filing to open up a larger market for CPO Roadsters, I'm sure they'd fast track the mods if you were buying one of theirs.

    Interesting that Transport Canada sold their Roadster just before US imports were approved. Nice timing on their part!
