I did wonder. It used to be a £13,000 jump to go from the LR to the performance making it an easy choice for many to go LR, now at £4,000 difference, tougher choice.Far fewer people are buying the Performance compared to the Dual Motor so lower price increase.
Profiteering like mofos but they need to as there may be leaner times ahead as supply increases and disposable incomes drop.
Since I got mine in March there were a couple of price increases fairly soon after, one being because of the changes to the grant qualifications. Then a couple more for both the SR+ and the LR. The performance increased from £56,490 to £59,990 just before Feb 2021, but that was the only increase for the performance until today. That alone struck me as strange. Maybe the performance isn't such a big seller in general?The m3 LR price increase seems a bit harsh. Its 4k less than the m3P. The model Y performance is +10K on the model Y LR.
Doesn't seem right.
Truth be told, some people are gonna be new to the idea of Tesla even today, and they'll see the cars at today's prices and be able to decide for themselves if they feel it's worth it but many of us here will always be comparing to what we originally paid, and also the features we might have got at the time that are no longer there. I felt my long range was literally the perfect spec at the perfect price and the then SR+ should have been £35,000.The standard range can get 300+ miles though, £48,490
That's the deal right there. If you can drive more than 300 miles without needing to stop you have an iron bladder and or are the only car in the country.
