In a move that will likely make owners who have taken delivery of a Model 3 or Model Y over the last three weeks a little upset, Tesla has increased their year-end rebate to $7,500 in the US. The higher discount can still be combined with the 10,000 miles of free Supercharger credits.
UPDATE: Tesla is now also offering a $5,000 discount in Canada. Read more here.
On December 1 Tesla introduced a $3,750 rebate for any customer who took delivery of a Model 3/Y by December 31, 2022, in an attempt to deliver as many cars as possible before the end of the year, presumably because the company knows they are close to having a massive Q4 in terms of deliveries and customers were putting off delivery to wait for the $7,500 tax credit that will be part of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) next year.
To further entice buyers to take delivery this month, Tesla then introduced a second offer of 10,000 miles of free Supercharger credits. Unlike the discount which was only available in the US, the offer for free Supercharger credits was also extended to Canada.
Unfortunately the discount still only applies in the US, but it has now been doubled to $7,500, according to a text message received by Tesla Inventory tracker WaitingForTesla.com (included below), who is currently waiting for their own delivery. The text message also indicates the discount can still be combined with the 10,000 miles of free Supercharger credits. Delivery must still take place before the end of the year.
Tesla’s website has not yet been updated with the new offer, and still shows the original $3,750 discount.
For anyone that was waiting for the tax credit to come into effect, this offer from Tesla is a much better deal as the amount is taken off the purchase price, as opposed to a tax credit that will be applied on your next tax return.
Not to mention you also get 10,000 miles of free Supercharger credits to go along with it, which adds up to about a $8,000+ discount.
Would this offer entice you to take delivery this December? Let us know in the comments below.
