The Model S and Model X programs have been rejected for some time.
Tesla delivered 15,200 units of both vehicles in the last quarter – compared to 17,400 in the same period last year and 27,660 vehicles (14,470 models S and 13,190 models X) in the third quarter of 2018.
During this time, Tesla has mainly focused on the cheaper Model 3 and Model Y vehicle programs.
Nevertheless, the automaker regularly updates the Model S and Model X with new features and functions, most recently with a range increase to 402 miles for the Model S.
Now Tesla is also lowering the price of the Model S in an overnight update for its online design studio:
Tesla cut the price of both versions of the electric sedan currently available for delivery by $ 3,000:
- Tesla Model S Long Range Plus: increased from $ 74,990 to now $ 71,990
- Tesla Model S Performance: increased from $ 94,990 to now $ 91,990
The price of the electric sedan has not been so low since it launched the Model S with a smaller battery.
The Tesla Model S plaid, which was announced last month but will not be delivered until the end of next year, has not received a price change with the configurator update.
It’s still listed at $ 139,990.
The price update follows price cuts in the Tesla product range earlier this year that affected the Model 3, Model S and Model X.
Back in May, Tesla cut the price of the S Long Range Plus model by $ 5,000 to start at $ 74,990.
Tesla also recently cut the price on the Model Y, which only launched earlier this year:
Tesla currently estimates a delivery time of 4 to 8 weeks for both versions of the Model S in the US.
The price change seems to affect other markets as well.
For example, the Model S now starts in Canada at $ 101,990 (~ $ 77,800).
Tesla didn’t explain the reason for the price cut on the Model S today.
