I think I'm now going to wait for AWD. Of course, I may change my mind based on any new information we obtain. But my thinking is:
- With Canadian deliveries happening in mid 2018, Tesla may be trying to push the 200,000 U.S. delivery threshold into July. If that happens, then the full federal rebate will be available through the end of 2018.
- If Tesla provides more information about Full Self Driving before I order the car (something more than just another one-off demonstration), then I may choose to order the car with FSD. Waiting to order the car gives them more time to convince me to purchase the upgrade.
