    Despite the logic of your conclusions, I think it would be fairly crazy for Tesla to start producing the Sigs *without* approval. After all, if they *don't* get approval that would mean they have to go back and retrofit 200 cars, pretty much immediately, which is not efficient.

    I think if they had no Sigs left to build which had approval, at that point they'd start building Ps and Rs and storing *them* (which would maintain the principle that the Signature holders get delivery before P and R holders).... at least I'd hope so! Of course, if European cars are approved they could produce European Sigs while waiting for Canadian approvals, etc.

    However, they certainly seem to be expecting Canadian approval before they've finished the US Sig cars, so that would be the right assumption to work with.
    I take "Electro", my amazing Model S, to the train station: yes, it's a station wagon

    Transport Canada is probably trying to figure out where to put the maple leaf on the car. If you've ever sat through any Parliamentary hearings, you'll realize that the position of the maple leaf and its size is a big dealtm.

    Welcome to Canadian Bureaucracy. My work at a pseudo-governmental institution includes attending meetings where we discuss (for three hours) whether or not our goal is to "Educate students towards their next career" or "Educate students towards their next careerS". Sigh.

    Tesla didn't have any trouble getting the Roadster approved. Most likely the bureaucratic gears are turning and approval will happen in due course without any drama.

    In the USA, the press were not allowed test drives until the government approvals came through. If that rule is the same in Canada, we might have a very encouraging big hint here (also a great review):

    He was probably driving a car licensed in the USA. You can drive those legally in Canada - people do it all the time.

    Good article; well-written and extremely positive. I hope the rear seats are approved by Transport Canada soon, though... I can't fit my whole family in without them, and that was how I convinced my wife to put down that much cash.

    I was thinking the same thing. All the cars at the Toronto Get Amped event were US registered with California plates and there didn't seem to be a problem driving them on Canadian streets.

    Alberta Motor Association website has Model S on their online insurance quote auto selection list.

    Need to select year 2012
    Could mean the Homologation test must / may have passed
