The Tesla Model S Is Now $5000 Cheaper

The Tesla Model S Is Now $5000 Cheaper”

Tesla may giveth, but Tesla also taketh away - the Model S 75 can no longer be had with smart air suspension, but the remaining variants can still opt for it.

For starters, the 75kWh Model S has become Tesla's least expensive model, thanks to a price drop of $7,500.

However, Tesla has announced today that the Model S 75 kWh has received a significant price drop - $7,500, meaning that the new price of the vehicle is $69,500. With this change, 60-kWh owners still end up saving some money compared to the new 75-kWh price.

For those owners of an upgradeable 70kWh Model S (that is, the "facelifted" version - previous 70kWh cars did not come with a software-limited battery and thus can not be upgraded), the upgrade from 70 - 75kWh is now just $500, down from $3,500 prior.

The lesson is this: Patience is rewarded for would-be Tesla buyers - but of course, you need to take the plunge at some point if you want the auto, so waiting forever isn't an option.

Until the Model 3 finally is released, Tesla never will be accused of making vehicles affordable to average consumers.

The Model S 100D kicks off at $95,800, inclusive of destination fee, or $92,500 without the pre-selected, upgraded interior. Pricing is also expected to meet in the middle, with a fully loaded Model 3 going for around $70,000 according to Electrek, though the base price of the auto will be around $35,000. In addition, Tesla now includes its all-glass roof as a standard option.

Meanwhile, the Model S 100D's MPGe ratings stand at 101 MPGe in urban settings, 102 MPGe on highway and 102 MPGe combined total.

"Periodically, we have adjusted pricing and available options to best reflect the value of our products and our customers' preferences", Tesla told Cars.com in an emailed statement. That is made possible because all 60 kWh cars were built with range-limited 75 kWh battery packs, allowing the company to unlock the car's full potential, for a price.
