  1. When to expect delivery when i'm 270,000 place in line.

    They did? "... many if not all"? That's news to me, and I have not missed anything that appeared on this site. Do you have any more details?
  2. Import from US to Canada to save money

    "In Canada, you do have to replace these stickers and manuals when you sell it ...." Once a vehicle is admitted to the country, I'm unaware of any federal statutory requirements on selling it. Registering/licencing it is provincial. In my province, Ontario, that requires only a safety...
  3. Import from US to Canada to save money

    I heard of a case (which I cannot verify): an owner of a US-purchased new car was refused Canadian importation (in Ontario) because it did not contain an owners manual in French. (He got one, and was admitted on the next try by a customs guy who didn't ask for it.)
  4. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    The early production could be high because the CT was designed around an efficient assembly line more than was the case with other models (so I've heard). Or low because of component shortages and unexpected glitches with such a unique model. And because the CT will be competing with two other...
  5. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    You can't know that -- without having two unknowns in hand: the production numbers and the delivery locations.
  6. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    "... being to market with a few thousand trucks in 2022 won’t make a ton of difference one way or the other." No, each of those first few thousand will act like 100 of them in terms of publicity. We will read of early owners being offered double. Of automotive journalists offering huge sums to...
  7. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    Did Musk say he hoped that building them would start in 2023? If so, they won't be rolling out to those on the list (non-employees) until 2024, and for locations beyond north-west states, deliveries might start in 2025. By then I'll be long gone. Oh well, nice idea while it lasted.
  8. Happy (second) Anniversary of the Cybertruck reveal!

    "Your new Cybertruck, configured as you specified, is awaiting your payment and pickup at your local Tesla facility." I expect that message to arrive to my inbox shortly after I die of old age.
  9. Does the Delivery Situation in Texas Affect Country-wide Delivery?

    FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES: As in some other states, Texas has long had laws to protect car dealers by barring automakers, including Tesla, from selling directly to consumers. California, the company’s biggest market by far, has long allowed the company to sell cars directly to buyers, which lets...
  10. Update from Elon: Cybertruck production starting late 2022 and volume production in 2023

    Canadian deliveries maybe in 2024 then? At my age, I have to forget the whole thing. Too bad.
  11. Factory pick-up in lieu of delivery [WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    Let me expand Crissa's point. "Here's how to defeat that no-good political party in the next election." That's political, and I agree that such comment does not belong on this site. "How to ensure that the Canadian list price of the Tesla you buy does not exceed C$100,000." That's not...
  12. Factory pick-up in lieu of delivery [WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    Mr. Administrator: OK, no politics, just a totally neutral, apolitical question. Please tell us why you consider Canada's proposed-for-the-next-budget 20% "luxury surtax" on most vehicles listing over six figures to be a "political" discussion -- and therefore forbidden on this site. Not...
  13. Canada's Upcoming 20% Surtax [Closed For Politics]

    Several posters have indicated that their CT will surely list at less (or not much more) than the C$100,000 cutoff. Well, what current model do you think the CT will share a price with? (I doubt it would be the Model 3.) Here are the latest Canadian prices of existing models: Model 3...
  14. Reservation order integrity

    "... Texas and California will probably be first." I wonder if state laws about selling only through dealerships will influence the choice of early locations.
  15. Canada's Upcoming 20% Surtax [Closed For Politics]

    As I understand it, the new luxury tax is in the proposed federal budget -- which has not been passed yet (and a federal election may occur first). But as written, the tax would apply to the list price of exactly what you buy.
  16. Canada's Upcoming 20% Surtax [Closed For Politics]

    Most taxes yes -- but this is a new one (luxury tax), and is based on the list price. Don't know if that would exclude extras like delivery.
