U.S. prices for the Tesla Model Y, Model S, and Model X have jumped by a small amount in the United States as the car manufacturer’s tradition of altering prices continues.
Updates made to the Tesla website reveal that all Model Y variants have had their prices increased by $250. As such, the entry-level model starts at $47,490 while the Model Y Long Range is available from $50,490 and the flagship Model Y Performance starts at $54,490.
Then there’s the Tesla Model S. The range now kicks off from $88,490 while the Model S Plaid can be purchased from $108,490. Both of these figures represent a $1,000 jump. Last but not least is the Model X with prices of the Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive up $1,000 to $98,490 and the Model X Plaid also now costing $1,000 more than before, starting at the same $108,490 as the Model S Plaid.
Reuters notes that these changes represent the second price hike for the Model Y, Model S, and Model X since prices were last decreased on April 19 in the United States. Model 3 prices remain stable.

Tesla’s prices are still much lower now than they were at the start of the year. In fact, the entry-level prices of the Model S and Model X are still down 16% and 19% respectively while the Model Y is still 23% cheaper than it once was.

News of these price cuts comes just a few days after Tesla announced that it will stop producing right-hand drive versions of the Model S and Model X. While this won’t impact buyers in the United States and most other markets, it will impact those in Australia and the UK, among others. Indeed, the decision to end right-hand drive production means the Model S and Model X will no longer be sold in Australia. Meanwhile, customers in the UK can now only drive around in a left-hand drive Model S or Model X, not particularly convenient for a country that drives on the left side of the road.
