Tesla Model Y pricing in Australia leaks ahead of official launch


It looks like the launch of the Tesla Model Y in Australia is just around the corner, more than six months after the electric SUV was approved for sale in the country.

According to a report by Australian automotive publication Chasing Cars, Model Y pricing was released to corporate and industry customers on Wednesday morning.

Interestingly, the pricing only included a single-motor rear-wheel drive variant and the Performance variant.

The entry-level Model Y will reportedly start at AUD$67,990 (~$64,300 CAD). Although not specified in the report, this is the Model Y Rear-Wheel Drive (formerly Standard Range) variant currently produced at Giga Shanghai.

The Performance variant will start at AUD$98,172 (~$93,000 CAD), a significant premium over the entry-level variant.

Considering Tesla’s current pricing structure, the Model Y Long Range will likely be priced at around AUD$80,000 (~$75,700 CAD).

The pricing comes more than six months after the Model Y was approved for sale by the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.

The approval was granted on September 15, 2021 and included three variants of the Model Y.
