....prices go up....


Tesla raises prices across its entire EV lineup

....Tesla has raised the prices of its electric vehicles for the second time within the month. After adding $1,000 to some long-range models last week, the automaker has now implemented a much larger price increase across its lineup. As Electrek reports, its prices now start at $46,990 for the base Model 3, $2,000 higher than before. The Model 3 Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive is now $2,500 more expensive at $54,490, and the Performance version now costs $3,000 more at $61,990

Meanwhile, Model Y’s prices now start at $62,990, or $2,000 higher than before, for the Long Range version. Tesla has increased the Performance version’s pricing by $3,000, as well, which means it’ll now set you back $67,990. For both Model S options, Tesla has added $5,000 on top of their previous prices, so you’ll have to spend at least $99,990 for one. None of the other EVs got a price increase as big as the Model X, though, which now costs $10,000 more at $114,990.


Although Tesla has quietly raised prices overnight, the move didn’t come out of left field. On Twitter, company chief Elon Musk hinted at the possibility of a price hike. He said both Tesla and SpaceX are seeing “significant recent inflation pressure in raw materials [and] logistics.” He didn’t elaborate, but he linked to an article about commodity prices soaring due to fears over the shortage of raw materials that Russia exports.

One of the materials affected by the Russian invasion of Ukraine is nickel, with its prices soaring and more than doubling since the war started. Russia is a key supplier of the metal, which is a critical component of lithium-ion batteries used by Tesla and other EV manufacturers. In addition, Electrek says Tesla is experiencing a massive surge in new orders due to heightened interest in electric vehicles caused by the rise in gas prices.



if......you just don't care........?!

Not a shock...
The price of everything used to make Tesla's has gone up in the last six months.
At least they're able to get the materials in a more timely manner than last year!

Hope this is so Tesla makes more money so Elon can have fisticuffs with a certain person in the news.l that he challenged.

And not to outdo Tesla, pretty much all auto makers have raised their prices over the past year or two

Tesla is trying to quell demand and maintain profit margins. They're increasing Model Y production capacity by about 200-250% this year and it still won't be enough. Some models of Model 3 and Model Y are already back-ordered almost into next year at this point.

Not being able to build your product fast enough for demand is not entirely a bad problem to have... as long as it's not carried too far, of course.
Giga-Austin can't come online fast enough!

Is there a family sized EV that the average American can afford?

Edit: My guess is that the majority of the members on this forum can afford what the average American can't.

The notion of 'family sized' car has increased considerably over the past 20 years.

The average price of a new car in the US is around $40k now. I believe that the least expensive Tesla M3 is around $45k, but I'd need to verify. They've changed the price twice in the last week.

I think that The Chevy Bolt, if they ever start selling it again, is actually VERY competitively priced. Or it was when they last produced it last year. I'm guessing it will be bumped up as well.
