  1. Is yoke wheel legal in canada?

    No maker would offer a model that would be illegal to "road" in that jurisdiction. Have heard (don't know if true) that some places restrict what can be sold more than what can be driven, so a maker might sell with a round wheel and stuck-out side mirrors, but provide a yoke steerer and...
  2. Price for dual motor CyberTruck?

    Turns out that Tesla does not convert the US price into Canadian at standard exchange rates; they apply their own formula. Also, a new federal Canadian "luxury tax" comes into effect on Jan 1, 2022. It's 20% of the amount of a list price that exceeds C$100k. Another variable is the province...
  3. New Tesla sales and service center opening in the Vancouver area.

    UPDATE Here it is six months later, and I've been visiting regularly. Still no signs of life except for the occasional Tesla charging. It's a former Saab dealership, with a sales office and showroom, and a big repair garage. All locked down. My point is that when a new facility opens, you...
  4. New Tesla dealer needed

    Traditional deliveries include a hands-on demo of how to operate the vehicle -- even if the controls and displays are intuitively obvious to an experienced driver. With a Tesla, I would consider this to be an essential element, requiring an in-person handover.
  5. New Tesla dealer needed

    "We need to go to Kansas City, Missouri to pick up our factory-new Tesla’s. This is due to anti-competition, dealership protectionist laws." If you're saying service centers can't deliver in that jurisdiction (but those across the state border can), that would be a reason. But I heard that the...
  6. New Tesla dealer needed

    I have reason to believe that not all service centers deliver vehicles. Anybody know?
  7. Will I need a armoured vehicle permit for Cybertruck in British Columbia?

    They might be, especially when new. Nothing about having to be shatterproof. But the point is that "bulletproof" is a general concept and common metaphor with no specific legal definition. My shaving mirror might or might not be bulletproof, depending on a dozen factors about the bullet, the...
  8. New Tesla sales and service center opening in the Vancouver area.

    Hope you'll have better luck than I did with the one that's ten minutes from my home. A year or so back, Tesla opened a service center in Kitchener, Ontario. Wanted to ask them about preparing my garage for the CT, but found I can't reach it by phone, emails to it are answered from elsewhere...
  9. With news of up grade for self drive at on sale price can i by now though factory has yet to be built as just have that amount now. Intend to be supp

    I speak Kitchenerese fluently -- but can't quite make out what you're trying to say.
  10. What should I expect by way of delivery procedure?

    Another question, because there's more to delivery timing than when they start to roll out the factory door. Will deliveries follow the order sequence, or what might affect the timing? For instance, maybe certain locations relative to the factory will or won't be served early (I'm in Canada)...
  11. Price for dual motor CyberTruck?

    Good question. People who can answer it are those who somehow know what the US/Can exchange-rate will be at delivery time. And Canadian taxes/surcharges/rebates then in effect in your jurisdiction. And whether Tesla will impose an out-of-county delivery fee, or a surcharge for complying with...
  12. Will I need a armoured vehicle permit for Cybertruck in British Columbia?

    "... illegal to own, operate or use a vehicle that contains a concealed compartment that was installed after the vehicle was made." Technically, toss an empty cookie package under the seat and you have created "a concealed compartment." But you can't thereby show up at a jail and hold out your...
  13. Will I need a armoured vehicle permit for Cybertruck in British Columbia?

    I doubt a CT owner would be charged under this statute, the intent of which is to prevent civilians but acquiring military equipment to use on the streets impervious to law enforcers. (And this has happened -- with tanks, tractors, bulldozers, etc.) But if you were prosecuted, there could be at...
  14. What should I expect by way of delivery procedure?

    Thanks, it's a relief to hear that. I guess what sounds outrageous makes the news; a simple reasonable explanation does not.
  15. What should I expect by way of delivery procedure?

    Has there been any update on this important issue: After someone bought a used Tesla from the original owner, Tesla turned off a costly electronic upgrade "because the new owner didn't pay Tesla for it" (causing consternation and outrage).
  16. What should I expect by way of delivery procedure?

    Thanks guys -- that's helpful indeed.
  17. Range loss in cold weather

    Thanks, AJ; appreciate all the effort in your answer! AJA
  18. Range loss in cold weather

    Question (at least based on present Tesla models): The most critical screen display, namely "Distance Remaining," is based on exactly what? Battery voltage? Distance driven? Ambient temp? Load aboard? Recent driving pattern (e.g., hilly terrain, trailer towing, max acceleration)? And does...
  19. What should I expect by way of delivery procedure?

    Assuming I live long enough to hear that my CT is about ready, what will the procedure be? (I've not bought a Tesla before.) For instance, there's a Tesla service facility in my town in Ontario. Is that where it will be offloaded? Will I get to specify options? Might that affect the timing...
