Meanwhile, the performance version of both vehicles, which drastically reduces their speed from 0 to 60 miles per hour, costs $ 13,000 less. Model S Performance now costs $ 99,000 (previously $ 112,000), while Model X Performance now costs $ 104,000 (previously $ 117,000). Buyers with a bit more money to burn can also add the Ludicrous mode to boost their car's acceleration by 20 percent for $ 1
Tesla did not say why it now offers its high-end models at lower prices. The company could delete its inventory or there is something else. As TechCrunch noted, however, its decision to shut down brick-and-mortar stores and postpone all sales online could lead to a very substantial price cut. This finally allowed Tesla to finally offer a Model 3 for $ 35,000, almost five years after the company announced its plans to release a model for the first time.
