Tesla Has Once Again Bumped Up The Prices Of Its Entire Car Lineup
Tesla has again increased the price of its cars, with one model increasing as much as $6,000 over the price the company was charging yesterday. This comes after a year of almost monthly price increases.
Tesla updated its pricing overnight with Electrek picking up exactly what has changed. According to the outlet, the Model 3 is the car to have suffered least with the Model 3 Long Range increasing from $54,490 to $57,990.
Over in the world of the Model Y, the Long Rage increased to $65,990 from $62,990 and the Performance moved from $67,990 to $69,990.
Those ordering a Model S will pay $104,990 for the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Long Range version, an increase from $99,990. The Plaid hasn’t seen a price increase, however.
The Model X is the car that has seen the largest price increase, with the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Long Range increasing by $6,000 from $114,990 to $120,990. That’s a huge increase, while the Plaid remains the same $138,990.
All of these prices are costly, of course, but the price increases are starting to get silly. Tesla isn’t saying why it’s increased its prices but it’s likely to be related to manufacturing issues that have seen the company’s delivery estimates stretch well into 2023.
With Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently suggesting that Rivian and Lucid need to cut costs, it’s also possible Tesla is simply trying to make as much money as it can right now, too.
