Tesla raises prices for the future Model Y electric crossover by $1000

March 28, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

After a couple of weeks of price and optional changes in the configurator, Tesla makes another change, and this time it’s about the recently introduced Model Y, which received a price increase of one thousand US dollars.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter that car prices from the warehouse would increase by 3% after the end of this quarter to support them in line with the recent price increase (which was actually only a partial change in the fall in prices last month).

When Model Y was introduced, we were shown a slide with prices for various configurations that would be available at the time of the start of sales. Tesla also started taking pre-orders on the opening night and on the website for available configurations. At the moment, the Standard Range package on the Tesla website “Design your car” is not available, but there are other configurations. With today’s changes, all three available configurations (Long Range, Long Range AWD and Performance) cost $ 1,000 more than the prices presented at the opening of the event.

The prices listed on the Tesla website are currently $ 48,000, $ 52,000 and $ 61,000 for Long Range, Long Range AWD and Performance models, respectively. However, customers who have already made a deposit still see the old price on their order summary page. At the moment, there is no confirmation from Tesla whether they will keep the initial prices for those who have already made a deposit, but it looks promising for the first customers who placed the early order.

It is noteworthy that this electric car has not yet been released and will be released only after a year and a half. It’s difficult for companies to predict pricing as much in advance, and if this is the only change that will occur with Model Y prices before the car is released, then there’s nothing to worry about.

In addition to price changes for Model Y Tesla, prices for cars will be raised from the warehouse by -3% at midnight on April 2.
