Default Tesla to raise model prices by average of 3%

Tesla to raise model prices by average of 3%

Tesla will raise the price of all its cars, with the exception of the new entry-level Model 3 Standard, by ‘an average’ of 3% worldwide.

The price rises, which will come into effect on 18 March, will add around £2160 to the £72,000 starting price of a Model S, and £2400 to the cheapest Model X SUV, currently £80,200. The Model 3 has not yet gone on sale in the UK, so final pricing has yet to be decided.

Tesla says the move will allow it to keep open more of its Tesla stores than previously planned. When announcing the $35,000 (£30,355) Model 3 last week, company boss Elon Musk said achieving the long-targeted price for the entry-level variant could only be achieved by cost saving from closing a number of its stores and switching to an online-only sales model. Musk did not specify how many stores would close, or how many jobs would be lost as a result.

Tesla said it has closed around 10% of its stores in areas of low footfall, but said a small number of those would now be reopened. It added that the future of another 20% of locations will be under review in the next few months.

Despite keeping more stores open, Tesla will still use an online only sales model worldwide, with all car sold with a seven-day or 1000-mile return policy. Traditional test drives will still be available at stores, which the firm said will also keep a small stock of cars for customers who wish to drive one away immediately.

Their management team seems like a bunch of idiots, what with all these policy changes, blowback, walking them back, etc.

I think you mean executive level management which would include their fearless leader, who has more control over the ship than anyone else.

Yeah, he definitely seems like a loose cannon. Hypomanic and tweeting **** out on impulse. Just because that's all the rage elsewhere these days doesn't mean it's a good idea.

As long as possible I expect - the pricing structures leads to people up-selling themselves into the SR+ so I doubt many SR models will actually be sold; it's another $2k, and since the target demographic likely hasn't handle physical cash in their lives, it's just another 30 digital dollars a month to them, and I feel aside from the "partial premium interior" which is mostly the PU seat coverings and motors, it's software that differentiates the SR and SR+.

Millennial jokes aside; if anything, the price will go down in future gens, or the car will get better and the SR price will remain at $35k.

I'll give it until 4th quarter before you won't see any again at that price (they'll be more).

How about you stick to posting this comment in one thread instead of trying to troll all the Tesla threads?

You're also late to the party as this news has been known for a little while.

MSRP changes usually happens once a year but go online and get a quote at a stealership from 3 different sale specialist and they all will give you 3 different prices.

Price adjustments by manufactures happens constantly you just don't see it because of dealerships.
