Tesla increases prices throughout whole lineup, its cheapest electric car now starts at $47,000 (Electrek)

  • Things started calm in 2022, but last week Tesla implemented its first price increase of the year, charging $1,000 extra for all of the vehicles equipped with long-range battery packs. Now this new price update includes more significant price increases.
  • All those price increases throughout the lineup apply only to new orders being placed today and going forward. For most versions, Tesla is guiding a delivery timeline of at least a few months – up to the end of the year for the cheapest versions.
  • As we reported last week, Tesla is seeing a massive surge in orders recently that appears to be linked to the increased interest in electric cars due to the surge in gas prices.
