Tesla trims Model S 75 price to $69,500 and adds new standards
Tesla has quietly announced a number of adjustments to the pricing and packaging of its family of electric vehicles in light of the recent decision to eliminate the Model S 60 and 60D from the lineup. The biggest change is a $7,500 reduction in MSRP of its now-entry-level Model S 75 Sedan. In addition to dropping the sticker to $69,500 before any incentives, the Model S 75 now boasts an all-glass panoramic roof and automatic power liftgate which become standard on all Model S variants. At the same time, both the air suspension and 72-amp charger have been removed from the option list on this model. The sticker on a dual-motor Model S 75D will drop to $74,500 with the Model S 90 D now opening at $87,500.
Tesla released a statement noting: “Periodically we have adjusted pricing and available options to best reflect the value of our products and our customers’ preferences.” It also indicated that on April 24, the prices of its top-end Model S 100D and P100D will be increased slightly, moving from $95,000 to $97,500 and $134,500 to $140,000, respectively. At the same time, the sticker on the SUV-style Model X 75D will drop from $85,500 to $82,500 and the 90D will dip from $96,700 to $93,500 while the cost of a Model X 100D will rise from $98,500 to $99,500. Meanwhile the Model X P100D will move from $135,500 to $145,000. Despite these shuffles, Tesla says it anticipates total average transaction prices to remain virtually unchanged.
