Tesla Raises Electric Vehicle Prices Again…Up to $6,000 up
Tesla has raised the price of all electric vehicle models in the United States again.
On the 16th, CNBC and other foreign media reported that Tesla has raised the prices of all electric vehicle models in the U.S. again due to supply chain problems and soaring raw material prices.
Tesla raised $3,000 to $65,990 for its mid-sized SUV Model Y long-range model and set the price at $129,990 for its semi-large sport utility vehicle (SUV) model X, up $6,000 from the previous price.
The price hike was attributed to soaring prices of raw materials such as aluminum used in automobiles and lithium used in batteries.
Tesla has raised vehicle prices several times in the U.S. this year, and the cheapest model has risen by $10,000 compared to last year, according to foreign media.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has warned of the dangers of a recession in recent weeks. Earlier this month, Musk said, “The economy is going to be too bad,” and that he will lay off 10% of his employees and refrain from hiring new employees.
Later on the 13th, Christopher Buzig, the head of Tesla’s Singapore office, said he was fired from Tesla. “Tesla has announced a 10 percent reduction in its workforce,” he said, hinting that the layoffs were in line with the company’s plan to cut jobs. 토토사이트
