Tesla increases cost of Model 3’s Dual Motor version and some color options
According to electric vehicle maker Tesla’s latest update to its Model 3 online design studio, the automaker has increased the cost of the Model 3 Dual Motor version and some other options.
As a result of the Tesla’s latest update, the cost of Model 3 Dual Motor version has been brought back to the original price of $5,000, which was set by the automaker earlier in 2018.
The move has come barely a month after Tesla’s decision to reduce the cost of the Dual Motor version to $4,000. The price-reduction move was evidently a consequence of the fact that many reservation-holders were unhappy with the $5,000 pricing of the Dual Motor version because Tesla CEO Elon Musk had previously said that the option on Model 3 will be priced lower than that on Model S, which is also $5,000.
After having reduced the cost of Model 3 Dual Motor version from $5,000 to $4,000 a few weeks back, Tesla has again increased the cost of the option to $5,000, via the latest Model 3 online design studio update. The increased cost means that the starting price of the Model 3 Dual Motor version will now be $54,000.
Besides increasing the cost of the Dual Motor version, Tesla has also increased the cost of the Pearl White Multi-Coat and Red Multi-Coat color options from $1,500 to $2,000.
