It’s the seventh increase this year.
Both the LR Model 3 and Y are now $1,000 extra, starting at $49,990 and $53,990 respectively. If you look further back, the LR Model 3 is now $3,500 more than it was earlier this year. Meanwhile, the LR Model Y is $4,000 more than it was a number of months back.
No specific reason was given for the prices rises. However, following a previous increase earlier this year Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated supply chain issues as a cause. And as we all know, the global chip shortage is prevailing.
