22% off MSRP. cash sale , no trade. Our '07 classic lbz duramax will sell privately in days for 1/2 what we paid for it 14 years and 190k miles ago.

A model X Tesla is min four months out right now. At least here in BC.


The X is in the process of a major refresh that requires an overhaul of the assembly line that should be nearing completion after 3 months of lost production. This has nothing to do with the global chip shortage. The same goes for the model S. When these two vehicles get back into production that will add even more unit volume and significantly more revenue for Tesla.

Due to the virus there is a shortage of computer chips. The auto industry runs on the "just in time" delivery concept for parts so have no stock on hand to absorb shortages. I placed a Tacoma on order January 4 and still have no build date.

Good to know. We have a neighbour waiting for one. I’m kinda looking forward to test driving his....and that could be dangerous...from the financial aspect anyway. [emoticon] LOL.

Under the administration’s infrastructure plan, this industry will get government support to do it here in the US.

Taiwan semi conductor is the biggest one that supply to the US.

Please give us a report on what is new. It is supposed to be a very significant upgrade. Especially if he springs the extra $30k for the "Plaid" version with three motors and 1,020hp. Delivery in the US is showing May/June.

Model X info

For those who don't know where the term Plaid came from watch this:

Going "Plaid"

Elon is know for being a bit eccentric

He’s not getting the plaid. He is looking at it for the same reason we are. To pull a small teardrop type trailer. In his case a safari alto and in our case a little guy max. We are both down sizing from motorhomes. This time around we want to get into the smaller campgrounds and in our case the island campgrounds off BC. We need something smaller for that. Especially for the smaller island ferry’s. Should be an interesting transition. [emoticon].

Good luck on that big jump into downsizing.

Never really into big rig but still made that upgrade so wifey can have sofa and full size bath.
Best decision in my life after splitting the atom with bottle cap and soda straw. lol

Happy wife...
