Tesla breaks the bank!

At first, Tesla announced an increase in the price of the Tesla Model 3 from 43,800 to 46,990 euros, then a second increase of 3,000 euros took place, bringing the model’s entry ticket to 49 990 euros. This pricing operation also puts the Tesla Model 3 outside the scope of eligibility for the super ecological bonus of 6,000 euros.

More bonuses for Tesla electric cars

The entire Tesla Model range is concerned since the Long Autonomy version is now displayed from 58,990 euros and the Performance version from 63,990 euros (the latter therefore leaves the scope of the bonus of 2,000 euros). The same goes for the Tesla Model Ywhich undergoes an increase of 3,000 euros (in its Long Autonomy version) and goes to 62,990 euros (excluding bonuses again).

Tesla takes the gamble of passing on crises in the sector to the end customer

To explain this choice, we can argue that like all manufacturers, Tesla is handicapped by the shortage of electronic components and while production begins in its factory in Germany, the brand must compensate for the jolts of the giga factory in Shanghai, in China, also slowed by the rebound of the health crisis. Delivery times for Tesla models are therefore increasingly long, although this varies by model, version and configuration. Finally, Tesla is naturally penalized by the increase in the cost of raw materials and logistics services. The brand is in fact relying on its strong appeal and its still reduced volumes so as not to be penalized by the end customer, keeping in mind that the competition is not necessarily better off, particularly in terms of delivery times.
