Tesla is starting to discount new inventory vehicles, specifically the Model 3 and the according to some reports, the Model X too.
The rear wheel drive Model 3 now starts at $39,030. After incentives, this brings the effective purchase price to $35,280. For reference, the average price of a new car in the US is roughly $48,000.
If you choose to lease it will only cost you $384 a month. A very affordable price from Tesla, especially when you factor in the amount of inflation that has occurred in recent times.
As for new Model 3 orders, Tesla is maintaining the same price and deliveries by June for all versions.
The automaker is likely trying to move existing Model 3 units as a facelift is due later this year. By discounting stock now, it will prevent Tesla from having too many “old-style” Model 3s on its hands when the new one launches in Q3/Q4.
Given the Model 3 and Y share so much in common, both models are expected to be updated simultaneously.
Tesla is also discounting some new inventory Model X vehicles by $1,560, but it’s not across all vehicles like Model 3.
