    Have you considered import one from US ? Even if the Model S Is not listed yet in the RIV at Transport Canada I think you should be able to get the approval.

    I'm not really looking to sell mine, but I might part with it for a premium. :)

    Transport Canada is the autority that give you the final approval. When I talked to them they say that I need to get a letter from Tesla US saying that they meet all canadian requirement for the car I want to import ( VIN of the car must be specified in the letter).

    I know there is some minor differences between Canadian and US cars ( red buckle for the safety belt in Canada is one of them) si I think you will have to get this completed in order to get the final approval.

    Unfortunatly, In order to protect their prices and sales in Canada, I suspect than Tesla will not give us a good help on that one.

    Let us know if you go further on that way

    Your best bet for a discount is to purchase one of the service loaners. Eventually there will be more used Canadian Model S's on the market but it might take another year or so.

    In the meantime unfortunately you can't import a US Model S without having Tesla do the mods and certifying the car with Transport Canada.

    Nope. No luck on the service loaners. None available according to Yorkdale mall salesperson plus he said the $8500 credit would not apply on a loaner so it would not be worth it.

    Found out yesterday the policy on service loaners/inventory cars. 1% off per month, 50 cents per Kms. Most inventory/loaners are 2 months old, with under 300 Kms. That means $2500 off. Peanuts compared to south of the boarder. Not very enticing.

    We definitely get the shaft north of the border. Has anyone confirmed that you can't import a vehicle into Canada? It would seem exceptional that Tesla would prevent that from happening, perhaps even illegal.

    Just found a demo at the a Toronto store with 2000 Kms but they say it is not eligible for the $8500 Ontario rebate because it has over 2000 Kms. Is this true? Seems odd.

    also just saw first used P85 for sale in Quebec but seems overpriced at $120,000.

    Yes, that's true. It's a clause in the rebate program to restrict it to new cars only.

    Those are the rules. They increased the Km eligible for the rebate to account for demo cars, but it is not supposed to cover used cars.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I was under the impression there were a few cars available to purchase immediately in Toronto? Perhaps none with your options?

    a demo is not a used car.

    2,000km is the new cut-off for demo cars.

    Should be brand new for that price. Besides, I want a P85. Wouldn't be happy with the 85. Thanks.
