    @VGER: WOW ... BEAUTIFUL !!

    I don't know if it's already been mentioned, but the TESLA MODEL S is now listed for the Quebec's rebate (8000$) ... here is the link:

    Perhaps they were indicating this due to Toronto being the only open and functioning service centre for staging, but I happen to know that is soon to change. I know the street address and have seen photos today of the Vancouver service centre under urgent renovation, Tesla Red already on some walls.

    I also asked directly how confident they were that BC Model S's would qualify for the $5k rebate, which requires a functioning physical "dealer" presence in the province, prior to delivery. The answer was "very confident."
    I don't think that is right Vger. The Roadster already qualifies for the rebate so you would think that it has nothing to do with Tesla having a store in BC.

    Apparently those cars have been there for two weeks though as they await approval.

    Frankly this really drives me nuts.
    The fact that our friggin' government is holding these up is so typical.
    It could also be that Tesla under estimated the time to make our cars comply. If they really have been there for 2 weeks that's unreal. Hope they took the time to get the new software updated for us!
    Maybe we should start a campaign to contact Transport Canada to try and push them?

    Given that the photo was taken yesterday we can probably assume that they won't get onto a truck until next week. If it's 7-10 days for them to arrive the earliest we would see then is the week of the 17th -- assuming you have the shipping capacity to move 100+ cars to Canada on standby. As we get closer to the holidays the bureaucrats and bankers will begin to checkout for Christmas vacation. I hate to the the pessimist but with no official word on what is happening I'm beginning to think that if whatever is holding them up isn't resolved within the next week or so that we're out of luck for a 2012 delivery. An update from the Tesla folks would be nice right about now.

    The last message we had from Tesla was a month ago telling us to expect an update in 2-3 weeks. I would be happy to get my car ASAP but I have to agree that we are not seeing anything until 2013 at this point. If Tesla had news they would have told us by now.

    We don't actually know that Transport Canada is the hold-up. For all we know these cars are still in testing / burn-in.

    If they ship them soon it is still possible to deliver them in 2012.

    Interesting & thanks for the pic...I don't have my VIN yet, but, I might be # 2003 which could mean that one of the vehicles next to the center one is mine...the config looks right...
