Tesla had a busy night adjusting prices of the Model 3 and Model Y in the U.S. by as much as $2,000. Not to be left out of the party, customers in Japan have seen an even bigger price drop.
Announced by the Tesla Japan Twitter account, both the Standard Range Plus (SR+) and Long Range (LR) Model 3’s saw significant price adjustments. (h/t Sawyer Merritt)
