Tesla raises prices throughout the lineup, with its cheapest electric car now starting at $ 47,000
Tesla has implemented a major price increase in its entire vehicle lineup in a one-night update on its online configurator.
Its cheapest electric car, the Model 3, now starts at $ 47,000.
We became suspicious after Elon Musk announced on Twitter that both Tesla and SpaceX were experiencing significant inflation, but the prices of Tesla vehicles have risen sharply.
Overall, the price of Tesla vehicles will increase significantly in 2021.
Things calm down in 2022, but last week Tesla announced the first price increase of the year, paying an extra $ 1,000 for all vehicles equipped with long-range battery packs.
Now this new price update includes more significant price increases.
The Model 3 rear-wheel-drive, Tesla’s cheapest vehicle, rose $ 2,000 to $ 46,990 today:
The Model 3 Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive has been priced from $ 2,500 to $ 54,500, but as mentioned earlier, it also gained $ 1,000 last week.
The Model 3 performance also received a significant increase of $ 3,000 to $ 61,990.
For the Model Y, Tesla increased the original price by $ 2,000 to $ 62,990:
The performance version of the electric SUV has also been increased from $ 3,000 to $ 67,990.
For the flagship Model S and Model X, they did not survive the wave of price increases.
The Model S now starts at $ 4,99,990 – अतिरिक्त 5,000 more than the previous price:
The performance version also received a वाढ 5,000 price increase.
The Model X surprisingly survived Tesla’s many previous wave of price increases, but not this time.
The price of an electric SUV is now rising to $ 10,000, starting at 114,990:
The plaid version also saw a big increase in price and now finally sold more than the Model S Plaid which makes no sense.
All of those price increases throughout the lineup only apply to new orders placed today and going forward. For most versions, Tesla is guiding a delivery timeline of at least a few months – until the end of the year for the cheapest versions.
As we reported last week, Tesla has recently seen a large increase in orders, which seems to be linked to increased interest in electric cars due to rising gas prices.
