Tesla has lowered the price of the Model Y by $ 3,000 by surprise and without the cause being known. There are different guesses about it.
Tesla Model Y is the last vehicle launched by the car manufacturer and its great commitment to increase in customers during 2020. As is well known, any plan that had at the beginning of the year has changed because of the coronavirus. Among the responses that have been experienced to the situation is the one just announced by Tesla: reduce the price by $ 3,000 of this car.
The Tesla Model Y is the electric SUV with which the company tries to lead the sector thanks to its 480 kilometers of autonomy, a power that takes it from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds and a maximum speed of 241 km / h. But despite the ambitions and excellence that can be found in the car, it is clear that this is not the right year to succeed in sales.
According to Electrek, in the United States the Model Y will cost $ 49,990, 3,000 less than to date. Everything points to the fact that it is a price reduction in order to convince drivers who have decided not to buy it at the moment because of the coronavirus crisis.
This is not the first vehicle to which Tesla has lowered the price and almost all cars have experienced reductions of between $ 2,000 and $ 5,000 in recent months. Here these discounts have been noticed in a slight way, although it is true that for other reasons, the Moves Plan, the Tesla Model 3 has never been as cheap as now.
All forecasts point to this year there will be a huge drop in the automotive sector and this vehicle that started selling four months ago has been forced to reduce its price by 6%. Will this discount be enough to drive sales? It seems complicated, but it is a good attempt.
In Expansión report that the “trend forecaster IHS Markit projected a 22% drop in the world market this year“and it seems that the objective is no longer to reach the forecasts, but mitigate that drop as much as possible in the absence of knowing what will happen the rest of the year, which will take the pandemic of the United States or the economic consequences that will remain. At the moment, Musk’s pressure to eliminate the quarantine is adding significant discounts.
