Almost one year later, Tesla has finally launched its highly-anticipated Model Y Standard Range Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) configuration, along with a 7-seat configuration for its SUV, reports Tesla North.
According to Tesla’s website on Thursday evening, the Model Y RWD is priced from $56,290 CAD ($41,990 in the US) and has 393 km of range, able to go from 0-100 km/h in 5.6 seconds, with a top speed of 217 km/h.
The Model Y RWD should appeal to more buyers, considering it’s cheaper than the AWD Long Range version starting at $69,990 CAD, a difference of $13,700 CAD. For Canadian winters, the Standard Range might be limited for those travelling long distances frequently.
Also available is the 7-seat add-on for $4,000 CAD, which adds a third row and two seats for (small) passengers.
It’s also worth noting for the Standard Range Model Y, it includes the premium interior and audio, that is included when one pays for the black and white interior upgrade.
For buyers in British Columbia, the Model Y RWD qualifies for a $3,000 EV rebate, while for those in Quebec an $8,000 EV rebate applies. That can take the Model Y RWD down to $48,290 CAD in Quebec.
Tesla’s website is showing delivery times of 2-5 weeks for the Model Y RWD version for Canadians, as of writing.
