A bit over a week ago Tesla unveiled its Model Y crossover with a 300-mile driving range. The configurator for that car has been live since the reveal, and already the car has seen a price increase of $1,000. An extra grand won’t scare off many Model Y buyers, but more expensive is more expensive.
The Model Y now starts at $48,000, the all-wheel-drive version will start at $52,000, and the all-wheel-drive dual motor performance version will start at $61,000. Again those prices are all $1,000 more than announced.
Elon Musk tweeted recently that all Tesla inventory cars globally would see the 3% price hike as of April 1. Production is still set to start in late 2020. That date is far enough away that it would be no surprise to see the car get another price hike before you can buy it.
