Comments

  • Looks to me like it went UP $1k.
  • At least the "P" went up $1k, it does look like the M3 SR+ and MY SR did decrease in price.

    Haha I fell for that too for a minute.
  • Performance model increased by $1000.
    Long Range model stayed at same price.
    Standard Range Plus model decreased by $1000.
  • I read this article regarding the price cuts. . . and raises:

    https://www.engadget.com/tesla-cuts-entry-level-model-3-y-prices-151853489.html

    It states:
    “ Tesla is determined to keep its sales strong, and it's using the time-honored tactic of price cuts to make sure that happens.
    . . . .
    The automaker hasn't explained its strategy and isn't expected to comment when it effectively dissolved its PR team. However, the strategy is fairly easy to see — Tesla wants deliveries to keep growing, and lowering the base prices of its most affordable cars could further that goal.”

    I suspect that there’s too much demand for the Performance variants of the 3 and Y relative to the entry-level variants. It’ll be interesting to see how the price changes impact sales and profitability.
  • Battery cell shortage. They can sell more cars with smaller battery packs.

    They should get that 150 km range Model Y out in Canada at that point do we qualify for the $5000 incentive.

    And they save on 2/3 cells
  • every other automaker already fulfills the smaller range category
  • First time poster. Taking delivery of my very first EV (SR+) within a week. Could not figure out why my account showed I had overpaid by 1k. This would explain it. Glad to see I got the credit for price difference without even knowing or bringing it up to Tesla.

    Thanks for the well wishes! As I get closer to delivery date, can anyone tell me if it is possible to use a referral code for the free 1000 supercharger miles after the order but before delivery?

    Yes, reduce it! We don't want so much boost!
  • @dpete99, there is another thread (probably many) on this topic of using a referral code after the order and before delivery. Several people, myself included, have had experiences where Tesla said they "couldn't" put in a referral code after the fact. That is, of course, nonsense, but it does seem to be their standard procedure. I suppose it doesn't hurt to ask; maybe your rep will do the right thing, but don't be surprised if they don't.
  • Hello people I am new to Tesla family. I ordered on Feb 15, yet to receive any updates. Anyone knows how long it would take to receive delivery?
