Tesla vehicles just got a little more expensive to enter, with price increases ranging from $2,500 for the Model 3 Long Range to $6,000 for the Dual Motor AWD Model X, as previously reported electrek, Some of the more expensive trim levels remained the same price as before, but the vehicle impressed ever in Tesla’s lineup.
The Model Y received a $3,000 increase over its dual motor AWD version, and a $2,000 increase over the performance model, while the Model S saw a $5,000 increase over the dual motor AWD version. Both the Model S and Model X already saw their pricing jump earlier this year, so new buyers could face significant potential sticker shock.
Tesla has called out supply chain issues in its most recent earnings call, noting that they can run under maximum production capacity in factories. This, along with rising inflation, could be a significant contributor to price increases, which would help control demand and offset rising costs.
