The Tesla Model S, the fastest sedan in America, and recent winner of Motor Trend‘s Car of the Year award, is getting a price adjustment. Already. That may not be as bad as it sounds–to $ome people–but for others, like those on the bubble of being able to afford the now iconic electric sedan, this news is not so cheery.
From Nick Kinkaid, Tesla’s Director of Online Experience:
- The price increase will not apply to anyone with an existing reservation prior to the effective date of the price increase, and who also configures their car and finalizes their order within a fair, predefined timeframe.
- There will be a few “options package” changes as part of the price increase (meaning some things that are currently considered standard equipment may become part of an optional package going forward). These changes will not apply to anyone with an existing Model S reservation prior to the effective date of the price increase who also configures their car and finalizes their order within a fair, predefined timeframe.
- All reservation holders who have “deferred” will receive an email regarding the price increase and will have the opportunity to keep current pricing and options packages by finalizing their configuration and order within a fair, predefined time frame, similar to those who did not defer.
Full details of the price increase will be announced in 2-3 weeks.
