Now you can get a Tesla Model X for $3,000 less than previous pricing, and if you opt for a performance Model S or X, you’ll enjoy newly standard features.

When Tesla first introduced the Model X, Elon Musk said that it would cost about $5,000 more than a similarly equipped Model S. If you look at current pricing, this statement remains untrue. That is, until now.

Just the other night, Tesla updated its design studio once again. It’s all too clear that the company continues to take regular steps to adjust model offerings, pricing, options, and standard features to further differentiate its lineup. Reducing base pricing, however, may be a way to pull Model 3 reservation holders toward Tesla’s “current” lineup. Model 3 reservation holders moving to a Model X? Perhaps Tesla is finding that more reservation holders are now considering a Model S (which was the company’s initial suggestion) and the automaker wants that group to also consider a Model X as a viable option.

Previous pricing for the Model X 75D was $82,500, compared to $74,500 for the Model S 75D. Now, the base Model X rings in at $79,500. Musk’s initial statement holds true, although it took some time to get there. Tesla explained (via Electrek):

“When we launched Model X 75D, it had a low gross margin. As we’ve achieved efficiencies, we are able to lower the price and pass along more value to our customers.”

Musk also explained that Tesla is now capable of producing just as many Model X vehicles as Model S’. It took the automaker quite a bit of time to get to this level of production (due to early problems with the Model X), but nonetheless, parity has been reached.

In regards to the newly standard features, Tesla has now rolled the Premium Package in as standard on the Model S P100D and Model X P100D. Additionally, even though an extra $5,000 worth of features now come standard, both models dropped in price! The Tesla Model S P100D costs $140,000 and the Model X P100D is precisely $5,000 more, at $145,000.

    Sept 2015, Musk tweeted that the X would only $5K more than the S…

    The RWD $69,500 Model S still exists so it’s technically a $10K delta between the cheapest Tesla models…

      If you read Elons tweet you see that he says “With same options” wish means you need to compare Model S 75D with Model X 75D.

        But when he announced it the Model X was a 7 seater. Later it was revealed that it’s a 5 seater and 7 seats would cost more.

        The only way his statement became true is by decontenting the X to be something less than what people knew it to be.

          The base config 7 passenger Model S 75D is $78,500.

          The base config 7 passenger Model X 75D is now $82,500.

          Thus, the price delta on base 7 passenger option is only $4,000, as opposed to the base 5 passenger is $5,000.

        But the RWD X is not longer available…

    With 310 miles range a loaded Model 3 at 56,500 look like a good deal!!

    1. Acevolt says:

      Especially after tax credits and state incentives compared to a BMW 3 series.

    2. unlucky says:

      A loaded Model 3 is $59,500.

    Tesla is getting a bit trixie forcing people to buy useless stuff like self presenting doors just to get useful stuff like the cold weather window washer system and heated seats.

    Not to mention the useless gull wings which could be eliminated completely and problem save $10K and warranty and repair headaches down the road.

    A working mans Model X (only tow vehicle Tesla makes) with regular doors, 300 mile battery, cold weather utility, towing package would be way to go.

    Could probably sell for under $100K.
