It seems like Tesla’s year-end sale for its high-end all-electric cars in the US is still ongoing. The official website of the electric car manufacturer revealed that inventory units other than the brand-new Model 3 and Model Y are also being discounted. Now, if the Model S and Model X inventory units are delivered by the end of the year, further benefits will apply.
The additional incentives for the Model S and Model X are significant even though they are only available for the last few days of the year.
According to Tesla’s website, customers who order new Model S and Model X vehicles today and have them delivered by December 31, 2022, will receive a $7,500 discount and a free Supercharging pass good for 10,000 miles. This is a really appealing combination because it significantly lowers the cost of the two flagship cars.
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of the Biden administration, which is anticipated to provide a $7,500 federal tax credit for certified electric vehicles, may be one of the factors influencing this plan. Surprisingly, according to the Internal Revenue Service’s list of approved automobiles, the Model S and Model X are not eligible for the IRA’s incentives (IRS).
In light of this, it would seem that Tesla’s last-minute special offers and discounts for the top Model S and Model X are mostly an effort on the part of the firm to guarantee that it delivers as many vehicles as possible before the end of the year. We’ll have to wait and see if this makes a significant impact on Tesla’s overall delivery numbers for Q4 2022. Given that Tesla discounts are uncommon in general, many premium EV customers should find the discounted prices of the new Model S and Model X inventory units to be appealing.
