Look at the performance difference between the EV Polestar 2 and the hybrid Polestar 1.

When the performance figures for their full EV look more like Tesla's, then I could see going with their full EV.

A friend of mine and his son is down there for the unveiling of the Y. Hardcore Tesla family. They have a Roadster an X and a 3. Knowing him, he will complete the set and order this.

We just got notice that Tesla just shutdown the sales store in Chinook as well as the Service Center. All employees let go as far as we know and no word if they are moving back to the rover mechanic.

Tesla fired most employees in its only service center in Calgary for being ‘inappropriate’. It sent local owners in a panic, but the automaker says that it will keep the location open.

A spokesperson for the automaker told Electrek that they fired “several members of the Calgary service team” after an investigation into their behaviors on the job:

“Several members of the Calgary service team were terminated following an investigation into an employee complaint which confirmed repeated inappropriate exchanges between colleagues. This is in violation of our workplace policies and behavior we will not tolerate at Tesla.”

The automaker confirmed to Electrek that they plan to keep the Calgary service center open and they will fill the several positions that were occupied by terminated employees.

Must of been bad for a company like TSLA to do something this extreme....

or it could be nothing. Remember, we're talking about a company/CEO who called a rescue worker a pedo and called the police to report an ex-employee was planning a mass shooting at the factory, both of which were totally fabricated.

I doubt it's nothing if they fired all their staff.

Tesla Model 3 now qualifies for EV tax credit: https://business.financialpost.com/t...ehicle-rebates

Anyone know or understand how you actually get the $5000?

Is that model of Tesla 3 worth buying though for the $5k rebate? The range is only about 158km, if I am not mistaken. Is somebody about to buy a Tesla anyway going to be motivated by that and buy the lower end Tesla?

I think the trick is you buy the cheap version, then pay Tesla for the software lock to get the range. The battery is already there. This way it qualifies for the tax credit. Which is clearly not in the spirit of the program, but hey, loopholes!

Isn't that software lock about 5k US?

I think it has to be a lot more than that. The SR+ is....(LOL,OK, just a sec on that one) is $55,100, so basic math is saying $20 100 to unlock. If that's the case the government should tell Tesla to get bent.


Anyway, I love Tesla's advertised pricing of $48,310*. What's that asterisk mean?
Spoiler!



Oh, don't mind us, that's just us making up a price you might spend on gas and showing you an imaginary number. Wild.
