2013 Tesla Model S will be with $2,500 more expensive

Article by Christian A., on December 3, 2012

Don’t wait until the start of 2013 to place your orders for a Tesla Model S to avoid paying $2500 more. Those who make their reservations next year will be subject to the price increase. For instance, the 40 kW-hr Model S will increase to $59,900. The 60 and 85 kW-hr models will cost $10,000 and $20,000 higher, respectively.

Meanwhile, the top-of-the-line 85 kW-hr Performance model has a price tag of $94,900. All Tesla Model S cars that have the updated pricing will have the following additional equipment as standard: 12-way power seats and heated front seats. This model runs at a constant 55 mph but Tesla claims that its three available motor choices have ranges of 160, 230, 300 miles.

Tesla also said that this model can accelerate from zero to 60 mph from 4.4 to 6.5 seconds but a Performance model could make the sprint in just 3.9 seconds. Tesla said that the $2500 price increase is half the rate of inflation.

With the press that the Model S has been getting, it’s likely that there are many customers who won’t be irked by the price increase. It should also be noted that Tesla is offering a four-year/50,000-mile extended warranty on top of the car’s standard four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty.

The pricing for the battery replacements was also announced. Tesla wants to reassure potential customers that $8000 will buy 40 kW-hr Model S customers a new battery to be installed at any time after the eighth year of ownership. The price goes up to $10,000 for the 60 kW-hr battery and $12,000 for the 85 kW-hr battery.
