Tesla prices increased almost every month in 2021, and again increased last month by up to $6,000 and Musk has now had to respond over complaints of these. A lot of people are putting this down to the post-pandemic economy and others are highlighting the recent issues that have been reported with FSD issues and supply chain problems.
According to a recent report, the Model 3 had the smallest price hike. The long-range Model 3 increased by $2,500 from $54,490 to $57,990. The Model Y long range has gone from $62,990 to $65,990 and the Model Y Performance went from $67,990 to $69,990. Some have even seen the prices on the configurators going up over night.
If inflation calms down, we can lower prices for cars

One user has taken to Twitter to question Musk on these constant price increases and whether prices will be dropping:
“Any plans to down the price of cars after pandemic or supply chain matters?”
“If inflation calms down, we can lower prices for cars.”
