Today, Tesla increased the price of the top-of-the-line Model X Plaid version in the United States by $5,000, or almost six percent.

The Tesla Model X Plaid now starts at an MSRP of $94,990 (plus $1,640 in obligatory fees), but it's still way less expensive than it was before the huge price cut applied to all Model S/Model X versions in September. The Model X Long Range AWD starts at $79,990, which is very important because a price increase beyond $80,000 would prevent it from being eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit.

This time, there are no other price changes to the Model 3 or Model Y, but as always in the case of Tesla, the situation is dynamic.

Tesla Model S/Model X price change (*without DST and Order Fee):

  • Model S LR AWD: $74,990 (no change)
  • Model S Plaid: $89,990 (no change)
  • Model X LR AWD: $79,990 (no change)
  • Model X Plaid: $94,990 (up $5,000 or 5.6% from $89,990)

By the way, at the same time, Tesla reduced prices for the Model 3 (by $1,000 CAD) and Model Y (by $2,000 CAD) in Canada, where Model S and Model X Plaid versions become more expensive by $2,000 and $8,000 CAD, respectively.  These changes seem to be mirroring the previous moves in the US (Model 3/Model Y price cuts).
