    I think the fed 5K discount is safe for a while. But I think we need more incentives for EVs, like lower charge rates for EVs at home, free EV parking, and more free chargers all over, etc, etc. And we should exempt EVs from road use tolls/taxes.

    If the Conservatives get it in, they also promised tax rebate incentives for energy home improvements, like solar panels, etc. I sure would like to install those on our roof. We have them at our lake cabin, and are basically self sufficient off-grid. But kind of hard to justify now at home, without some big incentives.

    I love green energy, but also understand that tax revenue doesn't grow on trees. So we need other economic tax incentives in Canada, and cut the choking red tape that is killing our businesses.

    Norway has the right idea, with now being the largest oil exporter in the world. They use those revenues to not only pay for healthcare and education, but also subsidize and promote EVs and green energy. We could do the same in Canada, if people would just wake up... In the end, world oil consumption is driven by demand, not production. And if we can do our part (albeit in a roundabout way, like Norway), we could actually reduce oil consumption by increasing EV demand and usage.

    I ordered my Ultimate on June 22nd. I was told November, but maybe January, and now everyone I'm seeing who ordered around the same time are hearing April. I have my fingers crossed, but at the same time, at least I have time to save more money and hopefully not have to get a loan. Anyone here have any information who ordered around the same time?

    Also, hi! I'm new here.

    Hi Kathryne , welcome to forum. Where are you located Canada US, elsewhere. Seems like folks in Canada who ordered in late April or early May are getting theirs end of July/August and the trend so far has been about an additional month delay for an order placed every week past that point. My order was May 13, so I am hoping September, October. This makes me wonder if I am going to get 2019 or 2020 model, not sure when the crossover will happen.

    Just an FYI. I spoke with Hyundai Canada, and they mentioned you will get the model year you ordered. The only way for them to provide a different model year is to cancel your current order and place a new one. Unless your dealer has contacted you to explicitly change the model year, you should be getting a 2019 (again according to Hyundai Canada).

    I’m in BC on Vancouver Island. My dealer told me that the factory build out for 2019 was probably done so it would be a longer wait, but my info sheet is 2019. I guess we will see. I’ll be happy with either.

    I placed my order on June 21st (in Montreal, Canada) and I was told right off the bat that it would be a model-year 2020 with an estimated delivery date of first trimester 2020 at the earliest. I'm expecting around April or so. Hopefully.

    That was my understanding too, though they did tell me November to January. I’m willing to wait regardless.

    It should be a 2020 model with those dates;)

    Doesn't that say sales up, not production?

    I ordered my Preferred on June 28th and was told I'd be getting a 2020. Does anyone know if there will be any differences from the current year?

    I heard even faster charging speeds but little else . Hopefully some software upgrades

    The European market gets onboard 11 kw 3 phase chargers. I don't think AC charging will change for the North American market. The Ultimate models will get new 10.3 inch infotainment screens, preferred will likely be same as current model year. Rear seat heating will become available unclear what models this effects.
