Tesla is listing China-made Model 3 and Model Y cars for sale in Canada, the company’s website showed on Tuesday, confirming the electric carmaker has completed its first shipments to North America from its Shanghai factory.

Tesla’s website showed both rear-wheel drive Model Y vehicles and the long-range, all-wheel drive version of the Model 3 available for immediate delivery in British Columbia, with codes showing they were manufactured at Tesla’s Shanghai Gigafactory.

Both models qualify for federal incentives of C$5,000 (US$3,700) in Canada, which, unlike the United States, does not link electric vehicle subsidies to the location of the plant that made the car.

Tesla representatives in China and at the company's headquarters in the United States did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The company and other electric car manufacturers have a cost advantage in China as exports from that market boom. The China-made version of the Model Y was listed for C$61,990 in Canada. That is about 22 percent more than the equivalent vehicle costs in China before incentives.

Tesla's move to export to Canada from Shanghai could help it keep vehicles made at its plants in California and Texas for sale in the United States, where they qualify for potential tax incentives of up to US$7,500 under the Biden administration’s subsidy program.


根据特斯拉网站上的信息,该公司将在加拿大销售中国生产的Model 3和Model Y车型,证实这家电动汽车制造商已经完成了从上海工厂向北美的首批发货。

特斯拉的网站显示,后轮驱动的Model Y和全轮驱动的长程Model 3都可以在加拿大的不列颠哥伦比亚省立即交付,代码显示它们是在特斯拉上海超级工厂生产的。特斯拉在列出待售车辆时使用的代码与车辆识别号码(VIN)的前三位数字相对应,上海工厂生产的特斯拉车型的车辆识别代码都以字母“LRW”开头。

中国生产的Model Y在加拿大的售价为61990加元。这比在中国补贴前的同等汽车价格高出22%左右。
