Short & Sweet

We felt our Thursday newsletter was getting a little lengthy and wanted to provide a more skimmable up-to-date newsletter.  So we’re trying something new.  

We’ll shoot out a quick newsletter on Tuesdays that will be more paired down, so you can get the latest and greatest EV news and get on with your day.

Have an awesome week.

Electric Vehicles

Price Drop?  Sure, why not?  Tesla has dropped prices across its lineup in the US and Europe.  The Model 3 RWD, has dropped from $46,990 to $43,990, while the 5-seat Model Y Long Range fell 20% from $65,990 to $52,990. This means the latter model now qualifies for the $7,500 US Federal Tax credit, resulting in a final price drop of over 30%.

The performance versions of the Model 3 ($62,990 to $53,990) and Model Y (69,990 to 56,990) also saw price cuts. The Model Y and Model 3 prices also dropped in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and, France.  Does anyone know what Elon’s next move is?
