Tesla has increased the price of their Bluetooth Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) by more than 25% in both Canada and the United States.
Tesla first added the new Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices to their online shop in January, pricing a single sensor at $95 CAD or $75 USD.
According to an update to the Tesla Shop sometime earlier this week first spotted by Paul Ke on the Tesla Model Y Canadian Facebook group, the sensors are now priced at $120 CAD or $95 USD, an increase of about 26%.
That means you will have to fork out $480 CAD or $380 USD if you need a full set of four sensors.
The price increase is difficult to explain considering the sensors can be bought from third-party retailers for much less.
In Canada, several online stores sell a single sensor for around $70, nearly half the price of what Tesla is now selling them for
Tesla first introduced these new sensors with in November 2020, and they were only available from Tesla for over one year. They currently only work with the Model Y, Model S and Model X vehicles produced in 2021+, and refresh Model 3.
All Tesla cars are already equipped with the sensors, so you would only need to purchase them if one of yours stops working, or a full set of four if you purchase a second set of tires for winter use.
