Tesla Motors today announced pricing for the 2013 Tesla Model S electric sedan in Canada.
The 2013 Tesla Model S will be available in three battery pack sizes – the base 40 kWh battery pack Model S will start at $64,500 CAD, Model S with 60 kWh battery pack will start at $75,200 CAD dollars and 85 kWh battery pack will start at $85,900 CAD, before provincial tax rebates, as may be available.
Option pricing has also been kept very straightforward. In Canada, all models will include heated seats and choice of décor as standard equipment. Model S in Canada will also include the game-changing 17″ touchscreen, 19″ wheels and a Mobile Connector with three adapters as standard equipment. Tesla’s Canadian pricing configurator, showing all pricing and options, will be available on its website in the near future.
With the most energy-dense battery pack in the industry and best-in-class aerodynamics, Model S has the longest range of any production electric car in the world. Model S comes with three battery pack options to fit the unique needs of different drivers. The 85 kWh Model S has received a U.S. fuel economy rating of 89MPGe and a range of 265 miles from the U.S. EPA. Fuel economy ratings from Environment Canada are still pending.
2013 Tesla Model S is the first premium sedan designed from the ground up to take full advantage of electric vehicle architecture. A revolutionary powertrain sits under the floorboard of Model S, creating an ultra-low center of gravity. Paired with an aluminum body engineered for superior handling, Tesla has created a vehicle that will raise the bar for vehicle handling and efficiency while meeting the highest standards for safety.
Without an internal combustion engine or transmission tunnel, the interior of Model S has more cargo space than any other sedan in its class and includes a second trunk under the hood. Model S seats five adults and two children in optional rear-facing child seats. The Performance Model S accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 4.4 seconds. The interior features a 17″ in-dash touchscreen with internet capabilities, allowing for streaming radio, web browsing and navigation.
More than 12,200 reservations have been made worldwide for Model S. Deliveries to Canadian customers will begin later this year. Meanwhile, Tesla will be opening its first new-design Canadian store in Toronto this November. Customers can reserve a Model S at one of Tesla’s retail stores or online.
