Tesla has raised the price of its all-new Model S Plaid by $10,000 just one day before its first deliveries, which will take place later tonight. Although the new Model S has yet to be delivered, it already has a complicated backstory. It was initially planned to be a new tri-motor Model S with Tesla’s new structural battery pack, which would be powered by the new 4680 battery cell.
When Tesla debuted the redesigned Model S with a new interior in January, the Model S Plaid+ became a tri-motor version of the electric sedan with a shorter range, while the became a tri-motor version of the electric sedan with a lengthier range. Tesla canceled the Model S Plaid+ earlier last week, further complicating matters.
Tesla upped the Model Y Long Range price by $500 in addition to the Model S Plaid price hike. Tesla has hiked the costs of most Model 3 and Model Y models by $500 every few weeks over the last few months. The carmaker hasn’t updated any Model 3 variant pricing as of this writing, but the price hikes could continue.
