Tesla cars have never been exactly budget-friendly, with some of them costing over $100,000. However, a lot of people consider them to be a good investment (especially with current gas prices). Unfortunately, for all of us, inflation is hitting everything and everyone, and that includes Tesla. All of the cars from Tesla's lineup saw a price increase recently, asking for up to $6,000 more. If you were saving up to buy a new Tesla, you'll need to save up a little more before getting one. Continue reading to browse the new prices.
Tesla Model Y
The Tesla Model Y comes in two different variants, and, unfortunately, both models got a price increase. The Tesla Model Y Long Range now costs $65,990 as opposed to the previous price of $62,990. That's a price increase of $3,000. On the other hand, the Tesla Model Y Performance has a price increase of $2,000, the lowest one across all models. Now, this model costs $69,990 instead of the usual $67,990.
Tesla Model S
The Tesla Model S, another really popular car from Tesla's lineup, also comes in two different models. This car got a price increase just a few months ago, and now it's seeing another one. The regular Tesla Model S now costs $104,990 instead of $99,990—a $5,000 price increase. Fortunately for the Tesla Model S Plaid, the price didn't increase, and it stayed at the same $135,990 mark.
Tesla Model 3
The Tesla Model 3, one of the most affordable cars in the lineup, didn't see a huge price increase. Before, the Tesla Model 3 started at a price of $54,490, but now it'll cost you $57,990. Granted, not the biggest price increase in the lineup, but it'll still cost you $2,500 more.
Tesla Model X
The Tesla Model X was another car that had a price increase a few months ago. The bad news is that it also saw a price increase again, but the good news is that only one of the two models available got a price increase. The Tesla Model X now costs $120,990, a $6,000 price increase compared to the previous price of $114,990. The Tesla Model X Plaid keeps the same $138,990 price tag.
New Price, Same Car. Granted, for those willing to spend over $100,000 on a Tesla car, a $6,000 price increase might not seem like much, but it still goes to show how inflation has been affecting every company. Let's just hope that Tesla decides to wait more than a few months to increase the price of its car lineup instead of doing it for a third time in one year.
