Yesterday, Tesla discontinued the least expensive version of the Tesla Model S, which has a 60 kilowatt-hour battery pack. Additionally, the company also made some significant changes to the pricing and options of its new cheapest EV, the 75kWh Model S.
The vehicle is now a lot more affordable, as it has received a $7,500 price cut. This means that it can be yours for $69,500, which is $1,500 more than the recently discontinued version of the Model S. What’s more, the standard equipment of the EV now includes the all glass roof valued at $1,500 as well as the automatic rear power liftgate.
To keep those who have recently purchased the discontinued 60kWh Model S happy, Tesla is giving them a great deal as well. Model S owners who decide to upgrade from a 60kWh to a 75kWh battery pack will save a lot of money. The company is offering a $7,000 discount, which means that the upgrade now costs $2,000.
Tesla is also offering those looking to upgrade from a 70kWh to a 75kWh battery pack a substantial discount. The upgrade is now available for $500, down from $3,500.
The EV manufacturer has decided to make these changes ahead of the Model 3 official release. The minimum 75kWh pack found on the Model S is the maximum pack size the Model 3 will offer. In addition, the most affordable version of the Model S now costs around twice as much as the base model of the Model 3, which retails for $35,000.
If the cheapest Model S is still too rich for your blood despite the discount, you might want to consider waiting for the Model 3. The upcoming EV is scheduled to go into production in June, with the first deliveries kicking off later this year.
