Tesla has slashed the price of its 100D and P100D Model S and Model X due to a new development in the car’s production.
Due to efficient improvements in the way the company make its 100 kWh battery packs, the prices are now available at a considerably cheaper price.
Customers can now benefit from between $3,500 and $5,000 reduction in price.
Speaking to Electrek a Tesla spokesperson said about the most recent price changes:
“Tesla is passing cost efficiency improvements of approximately 3% in 100 kWH pack production through to customers.”
Here’s a breakdown of the new pricing:
-Model S 100D: $97,500 – $94,000
-Model S P100D: $140,000 – $135,000
-Model X 100D: $99,500 – $96,000
-Model X P100D: $145,000 – $140,000
While still expensive, it could be indicating a pattern which could continue in future.
As the battery production became more efficient Tesla was able to reduce the price of their cars.
Some may notice that the new prices of the Model S and Model X are the same as those back in February but now the car’s have much more tech on board.
Tesla Model S P100D is one the fastest accelerating production cars in the world with a 0-60mph time of 2.5mph and has a huge 315 miles of range.
The larger Model X is no slouch either with the SUV recently hammering a Lamborghini Aventador in a drag race.
Now the base level Model S with 75kWh battery pack costs $69,500 and the base level Model X costs $79,500.
