Tesla has raised prices across its entire lineup of electric vehicles. The price increases are significant, too, with the smallest being $2,000; the largest increase is $6,000. The automaker has not provided an official reason for these increases, though it has blamed supply chain issues and economic conditions for previous price hikes.

The automaker’s smaller models get lower price increases (all pricing below includes a $1,200 destination charge but does not factor in any potential tax credits). The Model 3 Long Range sedan jumps $2,500 to $59,190 from $56,690; the base Model 3 and the Model 3 Performance remain unchanged at $48,190 and $64,190, respectively. Both the base and Long Range have estimated delivery dates of September-December, while the pricier Performance’s estimated delivery dates are June-August.

Every Model Y SUV is now more expensive, with Long Range and Performance models both getting increases. The Long Range is now $67,190, up $3,000 from $64,190, while the Performance rises $2,000 from $69,190 to $71,190. Like the Model 3, the Model Y Performance is expected to be available sooner: Its estimated delivery window is August-October. The less expensive Long Range with its larger price increase has an estimate of January-April 2023.

Among the larger models, the Model S sedan only sees an increase for the dual-motor version — but it’s a big one. It goes up $5,000 from $101,190 to $106,190, with an estimated delivery window of March-June 2023. The three-motor Plaid remains unchanged for now at $137,100 with a June-August delivery window.

Similarly, the Model X SUV’s dual-motor version gets the only increase for the nameplate this round, but it’s a whopping $6,000 to $122,190 from $116,190, with a delivery window of March-June 2023. The Plaid version is still $140,190 and will be available sometime between August and October.

How long these new prices last before there are further changes is unclear, as is whether or not models that didn’t get increases this time will get their own at some later date.
