Tesla is lowering the prices of its Model S and Model X, but only in the United States for now. An evolution soon planned in France?
For several months, Tesla has accustomed us to large price variations for its electric vehicles. Thus, the Model 3 and Model Y had lost last January up to 13,000 €, first in China then in the rest of the world including France. So, when we learn that the Model S and Model X are losing several hundred dollars in the United States, it is legitimate to wonder if the drop will also come to us.
$5,000 to $10,000 less
Spotted in the United States, the reduction in Model S and Model X prices is significant. The Model S Grande Autonomie goes from 94,990 to 89,990 dollars (from 89,076 to 84,388 euros by converting at the current rate) while the Plaid version goes from 114,990 to 109,990 dollars (i.e. from 107,831 to 103,143 euros in conversion). A drop of 5,000 dollars for both versions, which is therefore not negligible, even at this price level.
For the Model X, American customers even see the bill drop by $10,000. The Long Autonomy version goes from 109,990 to 99,990 dollars (103,143 to 93,765 euros) while the Plaid variant is now displayed at 109,990 dollars (103,143 euros) against 119,990 dollars previously.
The same decline to come in France?
For the moment, French prices are not experiencing the same drop. The Model S is still displayed on the brand’s website at €113,990 at the entry level or €138,990 in the Plaid variant. The Model X starts at €121,990 and goes up to €141,990 in the Plaid version. But let’s stay tuned, since the drop could come a few weeks later, as was the case in January with the Model 3 and Model Y.
