Tesla reduces the price of Model X, adds more standard options to performance vehicles
Tesla introduced several changes to its online design studio overnight in order to reduce the base price of Model X, its all-electric SUV, and make more options standard on the performance versions of Model S and Model X...
But after a $3,000 price drop today, the Model X 75D now starts at $79,500 with the standard 5-seat configuration or exactly $5,000 more than a Model S with similar options.
Tesla explained the price change in a statement:
“When we launched Model X 75D, it had a low gross margin. As we’ve achieved efficiencies, we are able to lower the price and pass along more value to our customers.”
Tesla had a lot of production difficulties with the Model X and its many “bells and whistles”, like Falcon Wing doors and self-presenting front doors, and it resulted in what Musk referred to as “production hell” during most of 2016.
At a press briefing for the launch of Model 3 last week, Musk said that Model X has now reached production parity with Model S in Fremont, where they are producing about 2,000 vehicles per week.
After hitting the lower-end of their delivery guidance for the first half of the year, Tesla said that they expect higher deliveries in the second half of the year – helped by Model X, which is now on display and test fleets for all of Tesla’s locations and in full production.
The new price drop shouldn’t hurt either on the demand side...
If the asking prices below are correct, it looks like the price of all(?) the (nearly) new P100D X's in TSLA inventory (67 for sale, including a few CPOs) dropped by $9 k to $10 k overnight, and closer to a $6k price drop for those which already had depreciated significantly.
Good news, unless you already bought one...
