Without considering the misleading "gas savings" that are automatically included in Tesla's configurators, the rear-drive long-range Model Y initially was announced to start at $47,000. The all-wheel-drive dual-motor long-range model was $51,000, and the all-wheel-drive dual-motor performance model was $60,000. All of these prices come before any taxes and fees.
After the price increases, the Model Y will start at $48,000, $52,000, and $61,000, respectively. Although the base standard-range Model Y is not in the configurator yet, it was initially announced to start at $39,000. Don't be surprised if this follows suit and goes up to a flat $40,000. For all models, the initial deposit remains $2,500, and production is still scheduled to begin in late 2020.
In a completely separate piece of news, Musk took to Twitter to declare prices on all Tesla inventory vehicles would see a price hike of about 3 percent.
The change will start on April 2 and was made in order to align inventory prices with those seen on the current Tesla website.
