Elon Musk is lowering the price of brand-new Teslas.

After lowering prices on the Model 3 and the Model Y, Tesla is now also slashing prices for the Model S and the Model X.

And the new ‘discount’ is quite generous.

This is no surprise as Tesla cuts prices of their cars on a regular basis.

The 320-mile Standard Range Tesla Model S now starts at $78,490, which means it is nearly $11,000 cheaper than it was last week.

The same applies to the 269-mile Standard Range Tesla Model X, which is now priced at $88,490.

And again that’s $11,000 less than before too.

If your pockets are deep enough and 300-odd miles of range isn’t good enough, you can always opt for the Model S Plaid.

The range-topping tri-motor Model S Plaid starts at $108,490.

It does 0 to 60 mph in just 1.99 seconds and in terms of range, you’re looking at 396 miles on a charge.

Tesla’s line-up currently consists of four cars plus the Semi truck, with the Model 3 being the cheapest car available and Model X being the most expensive.

Only the Model 3 is currently eligible for the $7,500 tax credit.

As you can imagine, there still is no sign of the Cybertruck, and no mention of pricing either.

Also, there’s no sign of the new Roadster.

Tesla began selling cars in the late 2000s, and the first car they made was a Lotus Elise-based convertible called the Roadster.

Back in 2018, Tesla unveiled a prototype for what would become the second-generation Roadster.

The car made headlines after a video showcasing its astounding acceleration went viral.

And shortly thereafter, Jay Leno drove it on episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.

After that we sort of forgot all about it, mostly because Tesla began hyping the Cybertruck instead.

During the 2023 shareholder’s meeting, Elon Musk said the company expects to unveil the production-ready Tesla Roadster in 2024.

We wouldn’t hold our breath, though.
