Tesla Model Y single motor pre-order. Eligible for the quebec $8000 incentive.

The pre-order for the Model Y single motor went up last night. If you live in Québec, you will be eligible for the $8000 incentive. (Eligible for the BC incentive as well).
I decided to post in hot deals since I believe the demand for this will be high.
Interesting things to note :
  • Full premium interior, unlike the TM3 SR+ which had a partial premium interior. You get the nicer sound system and less stuff software deactivated.
  • 7 seater option is available for order.
  • Delivery date in 2 to 5 weeks
edit : I recommend to use an affiliate link when ordering to get 1500km of supercharger free. MOD EDIT - NO REFERRAL REQUESTS ON THIS SITE

Rear wheel drive , wondering how these fare in winter ? Am guessing having battery weight distribution very low and centered can’t be that bad ?

I had preorders for Rav4 prime for about a year now and still waiting in a queue.
I decided to order the Model Y this morning.
There's too much issue with the prime at the moment. It could be a good vehicle after Toyota fix their battery and connectivity issue.

If it's like the Model 3 RWD, there was no issue at all when I test drove it after a snowstorm. The low center of gravity and weight helps a lot.

The slightly shorter range over the model 3 SR+ is a shame but for most people I’m sure it’s plenty. I did consider it, but for now I’m happy with my model 3.

I have a rwd model s..... No issues at all in winter with snow tires.... Traction control on the electric motor is amazing, very low weight, and close to 50/50 front/back weight.

My Dad's Model 3 RWD is fantastic in the snow with snow tires. Snow tires make all the difference for any vehicle IMO.

I drive a model 3 rwd. There are no major issues in Ontario in the snow but I definitely am more careful simply because the car has too much instant torque. If the roads are too snowy/slippery, I have to drive in the “chill” mode instead of the normal mode to slow the car down. Otherwise you can get stuck easier. In Quebec with more snow I would get an AWD. It’s a good deal though OP.

I own one. This is far from luxury. Tons of tech, yes. Luxury not so much in the Model 3 or Y.
You have a lot more luxury in a Hyundai.

Comparison with the Prime is pointless imho. The Prime is is the real SUV with decent electric range in the market unfortunately.

That said, I hate my RAV4 Prime coz the remote climate control doesn’t work below -10. Really stupid Engineering from Toyota.

10K plus tax to be a beta tester? The standard autopilot is free and does 80% of what the 10K options does.

What? Why? What does it have to do with OP? Hot deals do not have to be necessarily hot deals all over Canada!!!!

Tech wise sure as Hyundai got almost everyone beat.

Luxury can vary in meaning from person to person though.
