Tesla has officially introduced its extended warranty program in Canada, extending coverage to owners of the Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y. This program, initially launched in the United States in March, is now available to Canadian Tesla owners.
NEWS: Tesla has officially launched its extended warranty program in Canada for owners of the Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y. This new extended warranty program was first launched in the US in March, but it has now expanded north of the border.
Details of the Extended Service Agreement (ESA):
The Extended Service Agreement (ESA) takes effect after the expiration of the Basic Vehicle Limited Warranty, which is either after 4 years or when the vehicle reaches 80,000 kilometers. The ESA extends coverage for an additional 2 years or up to 40,000 kilometers. It is essential to note that the ESA does not cover basic maintenance items such as brake pad replacement and general wear and tear. Instead, it provides coverage for “repair or replacement to correct defects in the materials or workmanship of most parts manufactured or supplied by Tesla during the coverage period.”
However, it’s important to highlight that two critical components, the battery and drive unit, have their warranties and are not covered by the ESA. These warranties typically extend for 8 years or a mileage limit that varies depending on the specific Tesla vehicle, with some reaching up to 240,000 kilometers for the Model S/X.
Cost of the Extended Service Agreement (ESA) and Deductible:
The cost of the ESA varies depending on the Tesla model, as follows:
- Model S: $4,100
- Model X: $4,700
- Model 3: $2,400
- Model Y: $2,700
Additionally, there is a deductible of $135 per visit for all models.
How to Purchase the ESA:
To purchase the Extended Service Agreement, Tesla owners can follow these steps:
- Open the Tesla mobile app.
- Navigate to the ‘Upgrades’ tab.
- Select the ‘Extended Service Agreement’ option.
- Follow the prompts to complete the purchase, and the ESA will be added to your account.
