Tesla has again raised prices across its lineup, the automaker’s website showed Thursday. The last price increase was in March.
Starting with the entry-level model 3, only the long range version is affected. Prices range from $ 54,490 to $ 57,990 for a 2,500 bump. The Base Model 3 rear-wheel drive and Top Model 3 performance still start at $ 48,990 and $ 64,190, respectively, following price changes earlier this year. All prices include a $ 1,200 destination fee.
Still, the Model 3 price is far from Tesla’s original promise of $ 35,000. As of now 2021 you can get the now-closed Model 3 Standard Range Plus for 37,190.

The Model Y price has now increased to $ 67,190 for the long range version and $ 71,190 for the Model Y performance, $ 3,000 and $ 2,000, respectively. A Model Y has not been available for less than $ 60,000 since March, when Tesla discontinued the রে 41,190 standard range version.
The base Tesla Model S now starts at $ 106,190, which is $ 5,000 more than before. Order now and it will arrive in March 2023, according to the Tesla website. Prices for the Model S Plaid Performance Edition increase from 1,000 to $ 137,190.
It’s a similar story for the Model X, which has a base price of $ 116,190 to $ 122,190 – a 6,000 bump – while the Model X Plaid is priced at $ 140,190. Anyone ordering a Base Model X now will not receive their car until June 2023.

Tesla has no public relations department, and has not provided a formal explanation for the price increase. Other media outlets have pointed out that rising raw material prices could be a contributing factor.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has voiced his concern about the economy in recent tweets, and Tesla is in the process of laying off 10% of its workforce. It also comes as Tesla is expanding production to new factories in Texas and Germany. The company also confirmed plans for a second Chinese factory last month.
