Tesla has just again announced a $5,000 price increase for the base versions (Long Range) of both Model S and Model X electric vehicles with the news coming soon after the Model S began to be delivered to buyers.
The new Model X hasn’t even begun delivery yet, and it’s already seen a price bump.
Tesla has steadily been increasing prices over the last few months, with the Model 3 and Model Y the two cars that have been suffering the most according to an Electrek report. That doesn’t mean the Model S has gotten away without its own price increases before today, though.
However, it has particularly affected Model 3 and Model Y vehicles since Tesla hasn’t been delivering Model S and Model X as the updated versions of the new electric vehicles were delayed.
Last month, Tesla finally started deliveries of the new Model S – starting with the new Plaid top performance version, which also saw a $10,000 price increase last month.
The Tesla Model X now starts at $94.990. The price jumps from $79,990 to $84,990 for the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive Long Range version while the Model S Plaid hasn’t seen a similar price increase at all.
We presume that anyone who already has an order in will get the original, better price but Tesla hasn’t explicitly confirmed that as yet.
