Tesla drops price, ups standard features on Model S

Tesla Model S 75 Now Just $69,500

Tesla Model S 75 Now Just $69,500

Tesla has made its most affordable Model S option even more affordable as it implemented a price reduction overnight.

With the Model S 60 no longer an option for buyers, Tesla today lowered the price on the Model S 75 by a substantial amount. Electrek reports that in addition to those changes, some other tweaks mean you can only get certain options on higher-priced models now, which it looks like are created to help make sure the company continues to see a healthy mix of buyers at all points in its pricing matrix. The high amperage charger is separate from the DC Supercharging system, and allows faster AC charging if paired with a Tesla wall connector ($550) and attached to a circuit capable of delivering 72 amps.

Elizabeth Windsor has given permission for the 48-year-old's coffin to rest in Westminster's Chapel of St Mary Undercroft. His coffin will be taken from a chapel at the Palace of Westminster, thousands of officers are set to line the route.

Tesla has also made some other changes. Upgrading the Model S from 60 kWh to 75 kWh now costs just $2,000, down from $9,000. Owners who are tempted to upgrade can access the new upgrade pricing by logging into their My Tesla accounts. And if you bought an upgradeable 60 or 70 vehicle, the bump to a 75kWh battery capacity is cheaper.

Tesla's automotive gross profit margin is particularly important as the company brings its Model 3 to market later this year. Additionally, Tesla's own pricing scheme is constantly in-flux given that the company has an insatiable taste for tweaking the selection of features and performance capabilities across its Model S lineup. Customers can also opt for a second-row center console in the six-seat configuration of the Model X, which adds two cup holders and a storage cubby under the armrest.

We're focused for now but we'll obviously try to give everything. "One of Atletico's pluses is the counter-attack, but we are still in this tie".

So, what do you do if you just recently ordered a 60kWh Model S?

"Periodically, we have adjusted pricing and available options to best reflect the value of our products and our customers' preferences", Tesla told Cars.com in an emailed statement. We expect our total average selling price to remain nearly exactly the same.

Not just a bark: Australian UFC middleweight fighter Rob Whittaker relishes in his "underdog" status. With a win Saturday night in Kansas City, Whittaker would rattle the UFC's MW rankings.

As for those price increases, we can expect to see jumps for many of Tesla's higher-end vehicles. The Model S 100D will be priced at $97,500 beginning April 24.
