US: Tesla Increases Model Y Price By $500 Second Time This Month
At least the Tesla Model 3 prices remain unchanged.
The base Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD has just received a second price bump this month in the U.S.
It now starts at $52,990 (+$1,200 DST), which is $500 more than before and $1,000 more than on May 21. The Performance version remains at its previous level.
An interesting thing is that it’s the second time when the base Tesla Model 3 price has not increased. We guess that if the supply chain issues were really the reason behind the increases, Model 3 should move together with Model Y, simply because the two are very closely related.
Tesla probably would like to avoid the Model 3 MSRP being above $40,000 (with DST it’s above $40,000 anyway) or strong demand for the Model Y demand allows Tesla to charge more.
