Tesla has recently lowered the price of the AWD Long Range Dual Motor Model 3 and Model Y variants, pushing these cars even further into the EV market. Now, with this drop in price tag and upcoming potential incentives from the government, it’s looking as though these models will be a force to be reckoned with as they become even more competitive in the EV, and even ICE car market.
We saw the change in price this weekend with the Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor AWD losing $1,000 off its price, resulting in $45,990, and the Model Y Dual Motor AWD receiving the same decrease to $48,990. This comes just days after the Model 3 Standard Range was reduced to $36,990, another $1,000 drop. The Model Y Standard Range also saw a $2,000 drop to $39,990. Despite this, the most recent update has removed the Model Y from the online configurator for an unknown reason, but we’re sure it will be back soon with maybe slight changes being the reason for its strange disappearance.
Both the Model 3 and Model Y have a long way to go, with customers still complaining about build quality and poor design compared to other manufacturers, but with Tesla looking to implement its 4680 cell, structural battery packs, performance, cost, and range will be improved. Hopefully, this will drop the EVs right at the forefront of the market, even in front of cars powered by internal combustion engines.
