The cheapest Model S just got a little less cheap. Or, it will soon, anyway. In an email update to its newsletter subscribers, Tesla has confirmed that the price of its most affordable car is increasing by $2,000 starting on November 22.
The Model S 60, which we, offers a maximum range of 210 miles, will do the 0 to 60 sprint in 5.5 seconds and presently starts at $66,000. The dual-motor Model S 60D, which starts at $71,000, will do 218 miles on a charge and drops that acceleration time down to 5.2 seconds.
Adding $2,000 to those prices brings the starting cost closer to the next most affordable Model S, the 249 mile Model S 75, which starts at $74,500, vitally increasing the profit margin on Tesla’s entry-level model. This move comes hot on the heels of the company announcing that Supercharging willstarting next year.
Between that change, and the impending increase in price, anybody sitting on the fence about a Model S purchase should hurry up and hop off.
