Tesla Reveals Pricing For Model 3 In Canada

Tesla Model 3


Tesla has finally revealed pricing for the Model 3 in Canada and we’re actually quite impressed by how low it’s priced.

On its updated Model 3 FAQ page, Tesla now lists Canadian pricing for the electric car:

“Our first Model 3 in production comes with a long-range battery, 499 km of range, rear-wheel drive and premium upgrades throughout, beginning at $64,100. In late 2018, we will introduce the option for a standard battery with 354 km of range and standard equipment, beginning at $45,600.”


That $64,100 works out to $47,384 USD, or just a hair over the U.S. pricing, which Tesla states like this:

“Our first Model 3 in production comes with a long-range battery, 310 miles of range, rear-wheel drive and premium upgrades throughout, beginning at $49,000 USD. In late 2018, we will introduce the option for a standard battery with 220 miles of range and standard equipment, beginning at $35,000 USD.”

Not much of a premium in regards to pricing for our friends to the north.

Additional info on the Model 3 in Canada, including pricing, arrival and more, can be found in the attached, Canadian-specific, FAQ below.

Deliveries will start in the United States first, with international deliveries starting in left-hand drive markets in mid 2018, followed by right-hand drive markets in early 2019.

Once you receive your invitation and place your order for Model 3, you can expect to take delivery in approximately 3-6 weeks depending on your location.

We will send you an invitation to configure your Model 3 to the email address you used to place your reservation. Confirm your email address is up to date here.

$64,100…yikes. That’s well into loaded 340i M-sport, C43 AMG, XE-S 35t and Q50 Red Sport 400 money.

Sure for now in Ontario you can still qualify for $14,000 under the new government EVIP rebate, but given provincial elections are just around the corner and the Liberal party seems to be at risk of not getting elected again, means that trying to get the $45,000 SR Model 3 in 2019 for $31,000 seem almost like a pipe dream at this point.

Model 3 handles better, accelerates quicker, safer, smarter and healthier than the other cars you listed. IMO this price is really a steal in CA.

Basing on what, if I may ask? If it is just words then these words need to convince quite a lot of people. So far we see that not that many customers choose this configuration because it is lightyears away from promised USD35k. As for me, all the experiments with ergonomics and interior (read as cheap) look fine on a 35k car but not acceptable for something priced as a luxurious vehicle

Maybe that’s the problem with the ramp up, not enough people who actually wanted the fully loaded experience. I still think Tesla should have released the small battery first, maximised the number of cars vs number of batteries available and made all those $35k owners happy.
I know they want to maximise their profits, but with Model 3 it has always been about quantity, the more they make the bigger their profits, that’s just mass marketing and scales of economy at play.

Demand isn’t the problem.

They have only asked the first 70k reservationist in the US so far if they wanted to order.

And the current version isn’t fully loaded.

Many people want more equipement. Like AWD, Performance version, or the White seats.

“Model 3 handles better, accelerates quicker, safer,”

C43 AMG too? Are you sure about that? Car and Driver shows 4.1 sec in 0-60mph for C43 AMG and Model 3 is about 5.6sec.

Safer? Maybe. We won’t know for sure until official crash results are in.

The equivalent in price to C43 AMG will be the Performance AWD Model 3. It will be quicker.

Motor Trend says Model 3 has best handling in class with Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio. And that was not even the Performance Model 3.

But that is not what $64K Model 3 is, or is it?

The entire argument is based on the current Model 3 cost of $64K…

That is why Mr. Tesla is so rich; too much profit.

A car is not a house. It is only to travel and mostly to go to work. So…..

You need to buy the cheapest used car you can get.

…and die in your first accident….but at least you saved some money.

Actually, they do “not”. It says anything lower than 75k, AND has to be on the supported list. Of which, there is no longer a Tesla section. Mind you, there’s also nothing above the Bolt’s 383km range.

For most manufacturers, cars in Canada are only a little more in Canadian dollars than the same model in the US in US dollars. Car companies charge what the market supports and exchange rates are flattened out.
This is not the case for the Tesla model 3. In Canada, it now bunches in with the luxury segment, BMW 5 series, for example. Car for the masses? haha

My thoughts exactly. Nothing about ~$64k is “mass market”. That is full on luxury car territory, and with the large number of used Model S starting to come down the pipeline, the picture gets worse.

Today’s exchange rate is $1 US = $1.29 Cad. So $36k > $46.4k and $49k > $63.2k and banks will add 1.5% commission just to convert your money. So, no Tesla is not making a profit on conversion.

I’m glad I pulled my Model 3 reservation and purchased my one year lease return “Fully Loaded” BMW i3 Rex for HALF THE PRICE of the Tesla Model 3.

Nice car the Model 3 but I can’t afford twice the price!

All the Model 3’s on the Tesla Service Center in Salt Lake City were priced at $56,000 each, pretty much loaded RWD/310 mile range. That would be $72,000 Canadian.

There were probably 50 of them on the lot being readied for customers.

Fascinating since Tesla can’t sell directly in Utah.

I believe the fact that Tesla is selling cars in Canada now proves their intent to not cross over the 200k sales in the USA before July 1. USA buyers will have until the end of the year to qualify for the full $7500 tax break.
