The prices of the Long Range versions of the two models have remained the same, but the prices of the Performance versions have increased. For those who have their eyes on a Model S or Model X, the prices of all the variants remain intact.
The Model 3 launched in 2017 and is the car Tesla always wanted to build, bringing, as it does, an affordable (ish) electric car to the mass market. Its base model, the Standard Range Plus, with the discontinued Standard Range variant, will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds, reach a top speed of 140 mph and give a range of around 263 miles. The Model Y, meanwhile, is Tesla’s entry-level crossover, introduced just last year. Its base model is the standard range variant, which also reaches 60 mph from a standstill in 5.3 seconds, but has a lower top speed than the Model 3 of 135 mph and a lower range of 244 miles.

Tesla Model 3 & Y: how to get them even cheaper
As noted above, there are additional potential savings that can be made on both models, and indeed on the wider Tesla range. Tesla notes that in the US, electric vehicles are eligible for certain financial incentives and benefits that are not available for gasoline cars. These vary by state, but the example given by Tesla shows the maximum possible savings for buyers in California.
There, California’s clean fuel reward of $ 1,500 and additional incentives and savings of $ 6,300 can bring the price of the Standard Range Plus 3 model down to $ 29,190, making it the only Tesla potentially available for less than $ 30,000. With the same reductions applied, the Model Y can be purchased for $ 32,190, not as cheap as the Model 3, of course, but a lot nonetheless. All of this is possible through the Tesla website and buyers in different states and countries should research what savings might be available in their region.
