Tesla cuts the starting price of Model S by $5,000 | Mashable

The changes in pricing come a month after Tesla discontinued the 60 and 60D versions of Model S, which were are little cheaper at launch than the freshly priced 75 and 75D.

There were changes in pricing further up Tesla’s Model S lineup, but these are a little less straightforward. The 90D model got cheaper as well, and it now costs $87,500 before incentives (a $2,000 decrease). However, the top-of-the-line models, 100D and P100D, will actually become more expensive starting April 24, at $97,500 and $140,000, respectively.

And for those who recently purchased a Tesla Model S 60 and are now thoroughly enraged by these pricing changes, Tesla has a pacifier as well: Upgrading from the 60kWh to the 75kWh battery on the 60 now costs $2,000 instead of $9,000. For owners of the 70kWh Model S, the upgrade to 75kWh costs $500 instead of $3,500.
