Tesla Semi Reservations in Canada Go Live, Range from $26000 to $257000 CAD

Share:

Tesla has revealed pricing for its new Semi truck, which starts at $150,000 USD for the base model with a 300 mile (482km) range, and $180,000 USD for the model with 500 mile (804km) range.

A base reservation is available for $20,000 USD, while there are limited ‘Founders Series’ Semi versions available at $200,000 USD (one of the initial 1,000 available), which also require a full up front payment to reserve.

Canadian Tesla Semi truck pre-order pricing, according to the company’s website, is as follows (and is not exactly cheap thanks to the Canadian dollar exchange rate):

  • Tesla Semi: $26,000 CAD
  • Tesla Semi Founders Series: $257,000 CAD

The Tesla Semi doesn’t start production until 2019, and is touted by the company as “the safest, most comfortable truck ever. Four independent motors provide maximum power and acceleration and require the lowest energy cost per mile.”

Tesla says the truck comes with over $200,000 USD in fuel savings and can go from 0 to 60mph (100km/h) with a full 80,000 pound load in 20 seconds, while also speed up a 5% grade at 65mph (104kph). Full Enhanced Autopilot comes standard for the Semi, which Tesla says is impossible to ‘jack-knife’ due to its traction controls.

Canadian companies such as Loblaw and Walmart Canada have already placed pre-orders for the Tesla Semi, which was announced last week (which was partially overshadowed by the surprise second generation Roadster announcement).

    Tesla: Bankrupted before 2020.

    How many companies lose a billion dollars a quarter and survive to talk about it?

  • Mrleblanc

    Amazon did so for almost 20 years lol
    If you don’t understand jack sh*t about finance, don’t question it

    It’s well documented that Musk is dumping his own money in and it won’t last. The Model 3 has not planned out to what it was suppose to be and many analysts say that’s the make or break for the company. They might not seek chapter 11 but they will be bought by someone brave enough to try and right this sinking ship. I can’t say anything for Amazon as I’m not familiar with their history. See that, it’s a well thought out and explained rebuttal. No petty childish insults required. Take notes.

    Who would buy them lol ? Their market capitalization is bigger than almost all other car maker at $60+ billions. Obviously he’s dumping his own money in his own company ! How else do you expect it to finance itself until it can turn a profit ? Both Netflix and Spotify are losing more than $500M a quarter but nobody’s worrying about them… When a brand become as big and ubiquitous, it can afford to lose money for years to grow and disrupt the leaders of it’s industry, then it will make money. Money lost if far from a good sign of a company health.

    Why don’t you just wait until the Model 3 hits mass market? You look like a Tesla hater. From what I’ve seen, they are offering revolutionary cars that surpass almost everyone on the market. Getting more than 500 000$ preorders for a car that no one coudl test drive beforehand and with a 1000$ refundable warranty is an achievement of its own that no other carmaker could have done. I try Musk and Tesla is doing a great job and can’t wait to see what the future holds for the Company. I still do believe there was no need to launch a semi and a roadster when theyre still facing chaos for the Model 3.

    I am by no means a Tesla hater but I am not a fan of Musk. Just like you say he hasn’t even got the Model 3 figured out, the make or break, and he’s off launching other lines. Why couldn’t he wait until production was steady… I guess he needs the money.

  • FragilityG4

    I guess bankruptcy would be the choice.

    Do you have any links to back up your claims? FYI the model 3 has hit the streets already with first line production models rolling off the line awhile ago. Also, the model 3 had waaaay more interest than expected, the damn preorders take people into 2019. Once a production line is built and keyed in there is nothing more to do than to build another. Have you seen Tesla’s factories?

    Please show where you think Netflix is losing $500mil per quarter? They are spending that much on new content but not losing that in terms of revenue.

    Google it.
