Tesla hikes car prices in the US, all models become pricier
Tesla has increased the pricing of all its car models in the United States. The automaker's move to increase the price of all its electric vehicles comes amid the ongoing supply chain crisis. This is not the first time Tesla has increased the price of its cars in recent times. A few months back as well, the automaker announced a price hike for its vehicles. With this latest price hike of Tesla cars, all the EVs from the US automaker will become pricier.
The electric carmaker has increased its Model Y long-range price to $65,990 from $62,990, as its official website has shown on Thursday. This comes after delaying the deliveries of some long-range models in the United States by up to a month.
