To help with continued high demand, Tesla is opening a new delivery center just outside of Vancouver in Surrey, British Columbia.
British Columbia, and in particular the lower mainland has some of the highest rates of electric vehicle (EV) adoption in Canada. With a provincial $3,000 rebate to go along with the federal $5,000 iZEV rebate, the team at Tesla Vancouver has been known to deliver more than 150 vehicles every day for extended periods of time.
Many of those owners live an hour or more away from the Vancouver delivery centers near downtown. Soon some of those new owners won’t have to travel very far as Tesla is opening a new delivery center on the other side of the Port Mann bridge in Surrey.
UPDATE: We have now learned the official location of the upcoming Tesla Sales and Service Center in Surrey. Click here to read more.
Located at 19486 60 Avenue near 200 St and the Langley Bypass, the new location could begin deliveries as early as this weekend.

According to a Drive Tesla reader who received a text message advising him on the new pick up location, no delivery dates have been finalized, but the estimate in his account indicate a range starting as early as December 12, 2020. Here is a copy of the full message:
Tesla Update – Hello, this is to inform you that we have updated your delivery location to our new Surrey delivery center, located at 19486 60 Ave, Surrey, BC. This will not affect your delivery time-frame. Please reach out to your local Tesla Advisor if you have any questions or concerns.
The new pick up location is likely temporary and a precursor to Tesla opening a full service location in Surrey. Last month we reported on new job postings published by the automaker looking for sales advisors, service technicians, and more.
