The Tesla Model Y price has risen again in the USA – for the eighth time in 2021, but there will be new incentives.
Tesla practices frequent price increases for its vehicles. The recent case is the Tesla Model Y price rise for new orders: the manufacturer has raised the price of the Model Y Long Range Dual Motor and Model Y Performance by $1,000. It is the eighth price bump in 2021. No comments on the matter follow from Tesla.
Before that, there were significant price increases for Model 3 and Y in October and November. According to Elon Musk, these price rises are temporary, as the real goal of the company is to make affordable vehicles.
Now, the Tesla Model Y Long Range Dual Motor costs $58,990 vs the previous $57,990; the Model Y Performance costs $63,990 (was $62,990) before a destination charge. The crossover is currently $9,000 more expensive than in early 2021.
But there is also a consolation factor – new incentives for EVs in the United States of America. This is about a $7,500 tax credit given according to the Build Back Better Act, though it is still unclear if it works for 2021 or 2022 deliveries.
