Tesla raises prices again on Model S, Y, X

Stop the presses. We have news. Latest news. You’re probably going to want to sit down for this one. Reuters reports This Tesla has changed its prices again. Apparently previous price cuts went too far, so now Teslas are more expensive. The Model S and Model X are now $1,000 more expensive than they were, and the Model Y is $250 more expensive. The Model 3, however, still has the same price. For the moment.

This means that if you want to buy a Tesla Model S, it will cost you $88,490. The X-model is now $98,490 and the performance version of the two is $108,490. The Model Y is now $47,490 or $54,490 for the performance version. And the Model 3 remains at $40,240 and $53,240 for the performance version.

Even though prices for most Teslas have gone up, the Model S is still 16% cheaper than it was in January, and the Model Y is 19% cheaper. The Y Performance model appears to be the steal of the lineup, costing 23% less than in January. Overall, Tesla has cut prices six times this year.

All these price changes certainly make it frustrating for people who just want to know what a car costs. If you wait a day, will you save $1,000 or will you have to pay an extra $1,000? A thousand dollars probably shouldn’t really count for someone who makes enough money to spend $50,000 on a car, but that’s the principle, you know?

Then again, it’s not like someone who goes to a traditional dealership knows what their car is going to cost either. Maybe you can negotiate a cheaper price without any add-ons. Maybe there’s a dealer markup that hasn’t been advertised. Maybe they’ll try to stick you with a mandatory protection package and a $700 documentation fee. It’s frustrating and we’re all tired.
