Less than $35,000...!

Tesla doesn't really want to sell a $35,000 Model 3... so they made it even cheaper!

In Canada any EV with a base price below CAD$45,000 (just under US$35,000) qualifies for a $5,000 incentive.
Which handily excluded even the base spec Model 3.

So Tesla released a base Model 3 for CAD$44,999 ...
This special edition has a smacking range of 150 km (93 miles)! Software limited.
I bet you can charge it from completely empty to completely full in less than a quarter of an hour at a Supercharger

Of course, you can get options like fancy paint, nice wheels, more range; as long as you stay below $55,000 total.
I bet more than a few buyers will be tempted to pay for the extra range.

Dodgy? That incentive is dodgy, crafted to exclude Tesla.
The Montys get what they deserve. For good measure:

Anyway, excellent news for Canadian Tesla buyers.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.16 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Most people are in the longest queue.
