Tesla prices have never been as low as they are now. With significant discounts on their new models, such as the Model 3 and Model Y, these electric vehicles are becoming more accessible than ever before. The substantial discounts, amounting to several thousand euros, make these luxury cars more affordable for a wider audience and offer a unique opportunity to purchase a Tesla.
Update March 23, 2023:
As expected, the discounts are getting deeper on an increasing number of models as we get closer to the end of the quarter. We can now find recent Model S and X, Dual Motor but also Plaid models.
This drop in prices on new Tesla models also has an impact on the second-hand market, creating great opportunities for those looking for vehicles from previous years. The reduction in the cost of new models generally leads to faster depreciation of used models, making them even more affordable for buyers. So people interested in buying a used Tesla can take advantage of this situation to find attractive offers on slightly older models.
It’s important for buyers interested in these Tesla discount opportunities to act quickly and get financing right away. Indeed, the biggest problem for many buyers is the ability to quickly mobilize the resources necessary to take advantage of these limited offers. Currently, due to the economic situation, financing processes may take longer than usual as banks are under pressure and are more cautious in lending. It is therefore essential for potential buyers to prepare their financing file in advance and be ready to act quickly to seize these exciting opportunities.
It is also possible that new additional discounts will be offered again this year. This is because vehicle inventories are increasing at a faster rate due to fluctuating demand and supply chain challenges. Automakers, including Tesla, could therefore be led to use new levers to reduce their inventories, such as additional price cuts or offers.
Potential buyers should assess whether they want to take advantage of current discounts or take the risk of waiting for potentially better offers in the future. However, it is important to keep in mind that market conditions can change quickly and future discounts are not guaranteed. It is therefore advisable to weigh the pros and cons of each option before making a purchase decision.
Original article from March 9, 2023:
Officially there are no further price reductions from Tesla in France. This is not the case in the United States, where the Tesla Model S and X have seen new discounts on configurable vehicles in recent days.
Indeed, the Tesla Model S sedan is now priced at $89,990, while the Model X SUV is priced at $99,990, 5% and 9% respectively. In France, the Model S sedan costs a minimum of 113,990 euros and the Model X 121,990 euros. While it is difficult to compare rates in the United States and France, taking into account taxes and other aids, there is a significant price difference between the two regions. But this is not the case for other Tesla models.
The last price reductions in France date from January 2023 and concern the Model 3 and Y, these reductions have made it possible to drop below 47,000 euros for the Propulsion versions, making it possible to take advantage of the 5,000 (or 7,000) euro ecological bonus.
These are the official price reductions, but it is possible to take advantage of additional discounts. How ? Tesla has been offering several thousand euros in discounts in recent days vehicles available. Models, usually new, that are immediately available. Let’s take as an example, this March 9, 2022a white Model Y Propulsion at 38,600 euros (7,000 km on the clock), but there are also completely new models at 40,670 euros.
Discounts are applied to all vehicles, with options and colors to choose from. Thus, every morning we can discover new models for sale. The latter requires that you can quickly withdraw several tens of thousands of euros, which can be problematic if you have to look for financing.
Know that this is a common practice at Tesla, the US manufacturer is trying to boost its sales at the end of the quarter. That was the case in December 2022, especially on the Model Y Propulsion. In short, Tesla Model 3 and Tesla Model Y still have plenty of inventory on the manufacturer’s site, and it seems committed to selling them before the end of the first quarter of 2023.
Is it time to crack?
If you’re wondering if it’s time to crack, it’s hard to give you a straight answer. Indeed, we await news on various topics, including Hardware 4.
There is currently no camera on the front bumper – which is also a problem in the absence of ultrasonic sensors – and there is only one camera in the center of the rear bumper, above the number plate. However, that doesn’t mean the current Tesla Model 3 and Model Y are bad., far from it: with the price drop at the beginning of the year, they are also considered one of the best price / performance ratios on the electric market. By adding these temporary discounts, these offers are interesting. In addition, we await news from Tesla Vision, which would make it possible to offer an alternative to the vehicles currently on sale.
Nevertheless, with today’s very tight deadlines, it’s probably worth waiting if you’re not in a rush. New models will probably be able to be sold at current prices, and the price of the current Model 3 and Model Y on the used market will inevitably fall. This will no doubt lead to good business.
