Fully-electric cars still command a premium price, but Tesla is slowly but surely making its vehicles more affordable. Today, the price of the Model 3 and Model Y fell, but only for the base models.
As Business Insider reports, the Model 3 is US$1,000 cheaper, costing US$36,990 for the base model instead of the previous US$37,990 price tag. However, the Model 3 Performance configuration has seen its price increase by the same amount, taking it from US$54,990 to US$55,990.
It’s a similar situation with the Model Y. The base model is now US$2,000 cheaper, costing US$39,990, while the Model Y Performance configuration has increased in price from US$59,990 to US$60,990.
Tesla hasn’t advertised or commented on the price changes, but it’s clearly good news for anyone who had their eye on the base model of either car.
The price changes follow Tesla decision to invest US$1.5 billion in Bitcoin earlier this month, which sent the price of the cryptocurrency soaring. Elon Musk’s company is also gearing up to produce a much more expensive electric vehicle next year in the form of the US$200,000 Tesla Roadster, which was originally scheduled to launch in 2020.
