Though it hasn’t yet released the long-awaited Roadster, Tesla’s catalog offers more choices than ever before. The Cybertruck landed late in 2023, but all 2024 orders are sold out even with increased production. On top of that, the entry-level Cybertruck RWD model won't arrive until 2025. At the same time, the refreshed Model 3 sedan is on sale, and the Model Y remains a top seller. Tesla’s vehicles come well-equipped out of the box, and at a starting price of $40,630, after fees and destination, the base Model 3 RWD is quite the bargain. 

While many of Tesla’s prices seem reasonable at first, it’s relatively easy to add thousands to the bottom line with the automaker’s advanced semi-autonomous driving features, premium colors, wheel upgrades, and more — and that's at the time of purchase. Over-the-air updates allow additional features to become available and added (for a cost) later. However, consider that options like larger wheels can reduce range and ride quality, so the cheapest choice is sometimes the best. 

Tesla recently rebranded its Full Self-Driving feature, removing the beta title and adding more careful language around drivers' obligations. Although its asking price is no longer $12,000, Full FSD is still a big budget item at $8,000.

This article was originally published in 2023 and is frequently updated with new information. All listed prices, excluding the Cybertruck, factor in the mandatory $1,390 delivery charge and $250 order fee. Cybertruck destination fees were previously listed at $1,995. However, as of this writing, all 2024 models have been sold out, and new orders will be delivered in 2025. So, the delivery charge is subject to change. Cybertruck prices listed for 2025 do include the refundable $250 order fee.

2024 Tesla Model 3 Rear-Wheel Drive: $40,630 

2024 Tesla Model 3 (Highland) - LHD

The updated 2024 Tesla Model 3 is a solid upgrade over the outgoing model. It offers a quieter cabin, slight exterior tweaks, a more refined suspension system, ventilated seats, and more. Along with the upgrades, Tesla removed the turn signal and drive selector stocks, leaving the screen and the steering wheel as the main interior components.

Thanks to its 60-kilowatt-hour LFP battery pack, Tesla says the entry-level Model 3 can manage a noteworthy EPA-rated range of 272 miles and add up to 175 miles within 15 minutes of charging. Pricing starts at $40,630 with all fees.

  • Range: 272 miles
  • Drivetrain: RWD
  • Charging Speed: 170kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 5.8 seconds
  • Federal Tax Credit: Does Not Qualify Now

2024 Tesla Model Y Rear-Wheel Drive: $46,630

Texas-made Tesla Model Y walkaround

Tesla has dropped its standard-range rear-wheel-drive Model Y from its current lineup, and thus, all Model Ys are now of the long-range variety. This means up to 320 miles on a single charge. The starting price remains appealing at about $45,000. However, with federal tax breaks applied, all Model Y variants start at an even more attractive sub-40 grand.

The long-range Model Y RWD is the current base model and offers an estimated range of 295 to 320 miles on a full charge. With up to 250 kW of charging power, the Model Y RWD can add up to 60 miles of range in 15 minutes. The entry Model Y offers heated front and rear seats, a HEPA air filter, and a 7-speaker sound system with an amplifier.

  • Range: 260 miles
  • Drivetrain: RWD 
  • Charging Speed: 170kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 6.5 seconds
  • Federal Tax Credit: $7,500 ($80,000 cap)

2024 Tesla Model 3 Long Range: $49,380

2024 Tesla Model 3 (Highland)

The updated Long Range Model 3 has an EPA-rated range of 341 miles and can accelerate to sixty in 4.2 seconds. Besides the range and power, the Long Range version has microsuede door inserts and an upgraded sound system. The new audio system offers 17 speakers with two subwoofers. Without qualifying for the tax credit, this Model 3 variant can cost more than the credit-qualifying Tesla Model Y Performance.

  • Range: 341 miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 4.2 seconds
  • Federal Tax Credit: Does Not Qualify

2024 Tesla Model Y Long Range: $49,630

At $49,630, the Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD is one of the best values in Tesla's lineup. The vehicle offers impressive performance, range, and charging capabilities. The Model Y Long Range AWD has an EPA-estimated rating of 308 miles and features a dual-motor setup, yielding a zero-to-sixty time of 4.8 seconds. Also good on utility, all Model Ys feature two trunks, fold-flat seats, and 3,500 pounds of towing capacity.

  • Range: 308 miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 4.8 seconds
  • Federal Tax Credit: $7,500 ($80,000 cap)

2024 Tesla Model Y Performance: $53,130

Tesla Model Y at a Supercharging station

The Model Y Performance is the sportiest trim level of the Model Y lineup. Its 0-60 mph time is 3.5 seconds, and its top speed is 155 mph. All of this quickness, however, sacrifices range. At just 279 miles, the Model Y Performance loses 41 miles of range compared to the Model Y Long Range RWD. Additionally, fresh-faced entrants like the Kia EV6 GT are beginning to challenge the Model Y Performance's dominion, at least in terms of performance. 

  • Range: 279 miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 3.5 seconds
  • Federal Tax Credit: $7,500 ($80,000 cap)

2024 Tesla Model 3 Performance: $56,630

2024 Tesla Model 3 Performance

2024 Tesla Model 3 Performance

The refreshed Tesla Model 3 offers some notable changes. Most of these are in the visual domain, with new wheels, bumpers, and sportier seats. Powertrain-wise, the new Model 3 Performance is the most powerful Model 3 yet. Delivering more than 500 horsepower, the Model 3 Performance zips 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Yup, that's quicker than the more powerful Model S. The Model 3 performance variant also features a new adaptive suspension, a performance chassis, and Track Mode V3, which allows you to customize the suspension and handling.

  • Range: 303  miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 2.9 seconds
  • Federal Tax Credit: $7,500 ($55,000 cap)

2024 Tesla Model AWD: $74,630

2021 Tesla Model S Refresh

Like all Teslas in recent months, the Model S AWD received a price reduction and now starts at less than $75,000. Offering 402 miles of range and 670 horsepower, the Tesla Model S AWD ticks both the range and performance boxes. Including a 22-speaker audio system pushing 960 watts, ventilated front seats, and a rear center display, the Model S exudes far more luxury than before. Though, it's still not in the BMW i7 and Lucid Air's league of grandeur.

  • Range: 402 miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 3.1 seconds
  • Federal Tax Credit: Does Not Qualify

2023 Tesla Model X Long Range: $79,630

2021 Tesla Model X

In 2016, the base Tesla Model X 60D started at $75,200 and offered 200 miles of range. Today, the least expensive Model X starts at $79,630 ($70,490 with credit) and can travel 335 miles on a full charge. Equipped with a dual-motor powertrain, the Model X produces 670 horsepower and has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. The Model X also features many amenities similar to the Model S. Still, unlike the sports sedan EV, the entry-level Model X qualifies for the $7,500 tax credit so long as buyers don't opt for too many extras. 

  • Range: 335 miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 3.8 seconds
  • Federal Tax Credit: $7,500 ($80,000 MSRP cap)

2023 Tesla Model S Plaid: $89,630

2021 Tesla Model S Plaid

The Model S may be getting long in the tooth, but it remains premium and exceptionally quick. 

When introduced in 2012, the tri-motor, all-wheel-drive Model S Plaid cost $141,190. Today, it's $89,630. With 1,020 hp, a zero-to-60 mph time of 1.99 seconds, a top speed of 200 mph, and 359 miles of range, the Model S Plaid is one of the wildest price-for-performance deals in the industry. With plenty of range and a hypercar defeating 0-60 time, the Model S Plaid truly created new performance standards in the automotive space.

  • Range: 359 miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 1.99 seconds (factoring in the one-foot rollout)

2023 Tesla Model X Plaid: $96,630

2021 Tesla Model X

Now starting at less than $100,000, the Model X Plaid shares its underpinnings with the Model S Plaid. It is unlike any other crossover, offering six seats, Falcon-wing doors, and a 1,020 horsepower tri-motor powertrain. While its performance attributes are mainly related to its powertrain, it is fundamentally a family crossover with a nearly endless supply of power.

  • Range: 326 miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in 2.5 seconds

Like the higher-trim level variants, the base Cybertruck will offer air suspension, steer-by-wire functionality, ventilated seats, and a power front trunk.

It's currently the longest-range Cybertruck version, offering an EPA-rated range of 340 miles, or more than 470 miles with a range extender. As for power, the Cybertruck AWD produces 600 horsepower and 7,345 pound-feet of torque. Reaching 60 mph takes just 4.1 seconds.

2024 Tesla Cybertruck Cyberbeast: $102,240

Cybertruck-33

Tesla's priciest entrant is the Cybertruck Cyberbeast, starting at $100,240 (before destination charges). Costing more than a fully-equipped Rivian R1T or Ford F-150 Lightning, the Cyberbeast comes with a steep tag. The Cyberbeast is tuned to produce 845 horsepower and 10,296 lb-ft of torque. No, that torque figure is not a typo. The top-end Cybertruck has an EPA-rated range of 320 miles and can sprint to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds.

  • Range: 320 miles (440+ miles with extender)
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW

2026 Tesla Roadster: Pricing Removed, Remains Unclear

Talks of an updated Roadster began circulating as early as 2011. With more delays than a budget airline flight, the refreshed Tesla Roadster is beyond its due date. However, CEO Elon Musk has recently alluded to progress on the sports car. 

But the Roadster should be worth the wait because it should provide disturbingly impressive performance numbers: 620 miles of range and a 1.9-second 0-60 run in the base model. Musk said a more powerful SpaceX Edition is also underway, and since it’s equipped with cold air thrusters, expect a zero-to-60 time of around 1.1 seconds.

  • Range: 620 miles
  • Drivetrain: AWD
  • Charging Speed: 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in <1.9 seconds

2026 Tesla Hatchback: ~$25,000

Last but certainly not least is the heavily rumored Tesla hatchback. Recently, Reuters reported that this car is dead. However, Elon Musk denied this, so we're still including it here.

While very little is known about it, it’s rumored to be a four-door compact. It might be built in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon and targeted at a $25,000 price tag. Since it’s a Tesla, expect a rear-motor setup and enough horsepower to get it to 60 mph in about six seconds or so.

  • Range: 250+ miles
  • Drivetrain: RWD
  • Charging Speed: 170 to 250kW
  • Acceleration: 0-60 in <6.0 seconds
