The EPA is expected to require ___% of new vehicles sold in the US to be electric by 2032.
Click here for the answer.
It's like clockwork! Whenever there is news about EV tax credit updates, Tesla seems to slash prices. No complaints here! Tesla has recently reduced its vehicle prices in the US by 2% to 6%, marking the fifth price cut this year.
Prices have been lowered for all models, including Models S, 3, X, Y. Imagine qualifying for all federal and state incentives (I used the $2,000 available in CO); you could snag a brand new AWD Model Y for just $40,490. Tempting, right? But the big question is - should we wait for even more cuts or jump on this sweet deal now???
Speaking of Teslas for sale, you could have purchased Jay Leno’s 28k mile Tesla Model S P90D. It may still be for sale out there, as it hit a price of $55,000, but didn’t meet the reserve. I didn’t know that Jay sold any of his cars.
