    Is 94-mile Model 3 a clever workaround or silly business?

    Tesla recently brought its nearly nonexistent entry-level Canadian model—a version of its Model 3 electric sedan that costs about 45,000 Canadian dollars (about $36,000 U.S.)—out into the open. 

    Under Transport Canada’s iZEV program, eligible EVs have to be priced below CA$45,000 before destination and other fees. The Standard Range, which has been offered since 2019, is priced at CA$44,999, allowing the point-of-sale federal incentive; and up until now it’s been a special-request model not listed on Tesla’s Canadian configurator.

    • One final word of warning. Even Tesla admits that when buying one of their cars using Bitcoin, these kinds of refunds just might be a much bigger hassle.

      Tesla Is Kicking Inattentive Drivers Off “Full Self Driving” Beta Testing

      On March 6, Elon Musk tweeted about adding a “Download Beta” on-screen button to Tesla cars’ touchscreens “in 10 days.” While the button is stuck in limbo on the flow of EMT (Elon’s Master Time), the Tesla CEO also disclosed that the next big software release for the automaker’s vehicles will be in April, so we can at least expect the expanded availability of FSD beta software beyond today’s select group of owner-testers and some employees.

      The forthcoming “Download beta” option for all is huge news. Customers who paid thousands of dollars for the FSD sensor hardware necessary to
