We do hear about many prospective Tesla buyers cross-shopping the flagship Model S against the Model 3, but that's likely because a base Model S ($69,420) and a Model 3 Performance ($54,990) are much closer in price than the Model X and Model Y.
The Model Y may have just become much more appealing to many people since you can now get one for as little as $41,990. In addition, Tesla has made it official that the 7-seat Model Y is now available. At $42k, the Model Y is now $38,000 cheaper than the Model X, which is nearly half the price.
With the optional third-row seats, the 7-seat Model Y starts at around $45,000. For comparison, while the 7-seat Model X starts at $83,490, the 6-seat version will set you back $86,490. Again, no matter how you look at it, Tesla's flagship Model X costs nearly twice as much as the Model Y.
Our friend Katie from the YouTube channel All Electric Family has been putting together a sort of mini-series about the Model X and Model Y. She owns the X, but recently had a Model Y loaner to check out. We published articles about both of her recent videos, one highlighting the Model Y's pros, and the other doing the same for the Model X.
