    Canadian Production Discussion

    So, over in the Signature Discussion thread, it looks like those luck folks will be seeing cars in the November/December timeframe.

    I'm wondering if there has been any word on Production model deliveries as yet. The latest I've heard (I'm Reservation #343) is "late winter/early spring".

    I've taken delivery of cars in the Canadian winter before, and it is heartbreaking to drive that brand shiny new car out of the showroom into the snow and dirty roads. I'm actually kind of hoping for March/April delivery so that a) I get to enjoy it in nice weather, b) don't have to worry about winter tires for one year and c) I minimize the odds of cracking the car up on some snowy, icy road while I'm still getting used to it. It'll also give me a chance to get a good coat of wax on it before it sees winter.

    Make sense or do you just want your car asap?

    I am also thinking that i would rather collect it after winter for the reasons you described plus for three other reasons.
    1. The Montreal service center should be open and operational by then.
    2. The delay will give me more time to accumulate extra cash to be designated for the purchase.
    3. The delay will give Tesla more time to work out the remaining kinks and features not yet released.


    but most days i just want it yesterday ...

    In my case my current lease (G37X) expires at the begining of may 2013, so while I would prefer a summer delivery for the reasons noted above, I just hope I'll get it in time!

    The Montreal service center is supposed to be open by march, we shall see...

    The Toronto Service Center (actually in Mississauga) is open and under 5 miles from my house.

    That's crappy. When I reserved initially, I was on the US list since I signed up through Seattle. I was #1000 something, but then got transferred to the Canadian list. So instead of getting delivery dates I am waiting for a finalize email and hearing rumours Tesla won't send cars to Canada until the Spring? Really sucks.

    I'm torn on this one. It'd be really nice to not have to mess with winter tires until the end of 2013 but in the end I'd rather get the car ASAP...

    It's too bad we didn't get finalize e-mails with the latest batch of e-mails that just went out.

    So they're >7000 on the Finalize thread as of this morning... Hopefully we are contracted soon!

    FWIW: P7000, means a reservation this past February, an 8 month wait from reservation to finalizing! I've been waiting 38 months now!

    I recently checked with Tesla and was told my Sig Perf (CDN Res#146) was still on track for delivery in Toronto for end of Nov / beginning of Dec /12.

    I'm ready... Can hardly wait!

    Nice.

    My paperwork says November or December but I've heard nothing more about delivery dates. I made my reservation two years ago (and upgraded to Sig on the day it became available in March 2011).
