Tesla once again adjusted the prices of some of their vehicles in the US last night, increasing the Model 3 by as much as $1,000. Canada was left out of the price changes, and it looked like Europe would escape too, until you took a closer look at the online configurator.
Instead of raising the base price of the Model 3 in Germany, Tesla decided to change the price of the options. When added together they result in almost the same the price increases as seen in the US.
When it comes to paint options, Tesla increased the Mutli-Coat Red by €100 from €2,100 to €2,200 ($1,745 CAD). The Deep Blue Metallic and Midnight Silver Metallic options increased by €150, from €1,050 to €1,200 ($1,790 CAD).
The 19″ Sport Rims were also impacted, increasing from €1,600 to €1,700 ($2,535 CAD), and the white interior went from €1,050 to €1,200 ($1,790 CAD).
Similar changes were reported in other countries like France and the Netherlands. Austria also saw some price changes, but interestingly the price of the Multi-Coat Red paint was dropped to €1,190 ($1,747 CAD).
Demand for the Model 3 in Europe continues to be strong. In the first quarter of 2021, Tesla sold more Model 3’s in France than the locally made Peugeot E-208 and Renault Zoe.
