Another week, and another round of price increases at Tesla. This time the change impacts the new refresh Long Range (LR) Model S and Model X.
In an update to the Design Studio on Thursday evening, the prices for both of the base model EVs increased by $5,000. The LR Model S now starts at $84,990, while the LR Model X starts at $94,990.
This price increase now shrinks the gap between the entry-level and Plaid variants of the flagship vehicles. It also increases the price difference between the refresh and pre-refresh Model S, which used to start at the meme-worthy price of $69,420.
It also follows the recent $10,000 increase to the Model S Plaid last month, and is likely the result of increased supplier costs and also increased demand.
Unfortunately the new price has not also resulted in new estimated delivery dates. Customers who place orders today for the Model X should not expect to receive their cars until early 2022. Since deliveries of the refresh Model S have already begun, they have a shorter wait of just 2-3 months.
As with most of the recent changes, both vehicles in Canada were unaffected by this round of price increases. The LR and Plaid variants start at $114,990 and $169,990 respectively.
