There is a more affordable variant of the Tesla Model Y available. Now starts at $39,990 ($2k price cut) for a RWD 244 mile version. Those in CA will get $1500 additional off at time of purchase bringing it to $38,490 from Clean Fuel Reward (no income limits).. Some may also be eligible for the $2000 CVRP rebate but there are income limits. For those out of CA your state may also have additional incentives, I believe NJ had $5000 off (expired for now but may return) and you aren't charged tax on an ev making it an even better deal. The 7 seat config has been released as a $3000 option.

It depends on your opinion of Tesla. This is an opportunity to pre-order early if you're in the market for a new car and really desire a highly capable electric vehicle, but don't need the range or AWD.

No, its not a deal but an announcement for a more affordable version of a popular car.

That is not a question. Just a crappy half truth.

Can I ask what the slightly better interiors includes? Also, thank you for the recommendation to wait and the info about the previous 1 year supercharging perk.

I think there was something about better phone charging holder and a move closer to model s/x cubby. Not 100% sure. Also heated steering wheel. The big one is really the hepa filter for those CA fires if you live and work in CA.

Quote from Knightshade :
Makes no business sense.

Tesla, like all EV makers, is battery limited.

SR uses less batteries so they can make more of them.

Selling a "cheaper" RWD LR is a money loser for Tesla versus selling a greater number of SR RWD.

You want LR, buy the AWD or P.
could be software locked pack (it is with SR+ vs SR)

Why do I don't see the 5K rebate for NJ ?
It ended 12/15 last I heard. I might have bit the bullet and purchased had I known, but it ended fairly abruptly.

Quote from Knightshade :
Not sure why people keep repeating this lie.

Tesla has been profitable 7 of the last 9 quarters.

And could be even without tax credits.

In a couple weeks they announce Q4 earnings- they're likely be -extremely- profitable on top of said credits....

They were profitable ex credits (if you do the math honestly) in Q3.

They sold an extra 41,000 cars in Q4. With a gross profit per car of $12,200 (based on Q3 gross profit, probably higher in Q4).

That's 500 million dollars of additional gross profit Q4 over Q3.




That day was a couple of years ago.

Tesla has largely been reinvesting the profits into the company to build more factories and scale up though.

That's how growth companies work.

Amazon didn't post much profit at all for like 10 years when they were in hypergrowth- but their revenues were exploding, and once they had built "enough" with them their profits were likewise phenomenal.

Same thing here.


it's one of the reasons Tesla is worth so much more than other car companies.

They make 5-figure gross profits on each car they sell.

In contrast VW is losing almost $5000 for each ID.3 they sell.
Tesla being the only with working driverless technology is enough reason for investing. They have thousands of cars on the road collecting data as we speak

The thing with technology is that when they hit a certain threshold, there is no competition. Think google search engine, cloud computing, 5nm cpu manufacturing...

Not with tesla moving to Texas, a red state. Obviously. Tesla didnt do as well with democrats as google/apple/facebook
Elon is moving there, not Tesla for no income tax. Heck even the TX factory is in blue Austin.

The issue is blue tax credits for consumer (which is what makes EVs a SD)

Quote from Dr. J :
about 2.5 hours of that is spent charging (5 stops). Performance (non LR) is 6 stops anfd more like 3 hours charging although the planner says the total time is the same (likely rounding). .
I usually take about 14 hours from NYC(new LGA) to Chicago(near McCormick Place). Plus however long it takes to refuel and go to bathrooms. I don't need to stop... 14 hours is the max that I can drive while 100% alert... anything over that, I need to make an overnight stay at a hotel.(yes, I"m an old geezer Frown )

When Tesla is being charged, can the driver remain in the car and take a nap. Is there an audible alarm that warns me to wake up from my nap when the charging is done and get out of the charging spot? If so, I guess that's not too bad for a very long drive.

thanks!

Model 3 SR doesn't have autopilot but SR+ has it. This Y is SR (not SR+). Does it have autopilot?

This is a bolt on solution [comma.ai] for $1k that is compatible with many "newer" cars.

Quote from FrozenBeer :
I frequently drive between NY and Chicago.(or NYC to Florida) I usually only need to make 1 stop to fill up the car. (not other stops)

Is this possible with a Tesla? How many charging stops will I have to make?(and how long?)

Thanks!
I would recommend checking out EV Trip Planner and taking a look at the different ranged EVs. It has a lot of parameters and it'll help you see how many times you have to stop to charge for your route (stops included).

Quote from Knightshade :
You seem unclear on gross vs net margin.

Tesla took most of that margin and reinvested it into building new production facilities so they can continue growing production and volume.


if they'd just sold those 500k cars, and NOT also been building 2 new factories ((and other future revenue stuff like R&D, etc) then yes, you'd see massive massive profit THIS year.

But that's dumb.

If you're making 12k margin on every car you should dump as much as possible into making MORE cars for as long as demand exceeds supply (which is a lot of years into the future at this rate)
Revenue – Expenses = Profit.

All major car companies adhere to this basic formula. All major car companies re-invest, all major car companies have R&D costs, all major car companies have employees, capital outlay, expansion costs, sales expenses, warranty costs etc. you can't cherry pick what you think is "profit per vehicle" without factoring in everything else that all other major car companies deal with. By Using your Strange math, Ford Probably makes $20,000 per F-150 sold.

I was interested in the Model Y, but that 3rd row looks tiny. What's the leg room look like?

Would you trust this over tesla if you are shopping for driverless technology?

Usually EV people will write off the hours spent waiting to charge saying "but you need to go to the bathroom and eat". For that trip, that may be true but not 2.5 hours worth of pissing and eating - I'd rather just get the drive over quicker personally. I've driven CT to FL before, and I just want to get the drive over, not make excuses at 3AM on why I need to stop when I'm an adult and don't need to take a piss every hour.

You can certainly stay with the car - note that many route planners also don't have you charging to 100% like you'd assume, as charging is nonlinear (meaning as the battery becomes more charged, it charges slower); the consequence is more stops. Tesla will "fine" you if you take up a supercharging spot too long [tesla.com].
