Tesla has adjusted the cost of its electric vehicles after reducing federal benefits in the United States.

Previously, American citizens could save $ 7,500 when buying electric cars. However, since January 1, this amount has been reduced by half.

Therefore, Tesla decided to compensate for this amount due to lower prices for all their models. For example, previously the price of a Model 3 with a medium-range battery was $ 46,000, but now an electric vehicle in the US can be purchased for $ 44,000.

Currently, Tesla prices are as follows:

    Model S 75D costs 76 thousand dollars instead of 78 thousand;
    Model X 75D costs from 82 thousand dollars instead of 84 thousand;
    Model S 100D costs from 94 thousand dollars instead of 96 thousand;
    Model X 100D costs from 97,000 dollars instead of 99 thousand.

“After the success in the fourth quarter of 2018, we are taking steps to partially compensate for the reduction of the federal tax credit for electric cars (which has decreased from $ 7,500 to $ 3,750 since January 1). Starting today, we are reducing the prices of Model S, Model X and Model 3 cars in the United States by $ 2,000. Customers can apply for a federal tax credit of $ 3,750 for new deliveries starting January 1, 2019, and are eligible for benefits under several government programs that range up to $ 4,000, ”explained their decision in Tesla.
