Tesla Starting Canadian Auto Sales

teslawhite1Tesla Motors has begun selling its electric cars in Canada, and hopes to begin deliveries to the Great White North starting this fall.

Tesla, which has delivered more than 200 cars to U.S. customers, views Canada as a great showcase for its cars because the nation derives a majority of electricity from renewable resources, including run-of-river small hydro, wind, biomass, geothermal and solar energy, according to a press release.

On average, an electric vehicle recharged from the Canadian grid would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 85 percent, when compared to a similar gasoline-powered vehicle. In British Columbia, Quebec and Manitoba, where hydro-power is prevalent, the reduction would climb to 98 percent, Tesla said.

Tesla has sought government loans to advance its manufacturing capability.
