Tesla has announced Australian pricing for all versions of the Model X, which will go on sale there starting in October.

Pricing is as follows:

  • Tesla Model X 60D – $122,812.20
  • Tesla Model X 75D – $139,842.00
  • Tesla Model X 90D – $163,242.00
  • Tesla Model X P90D – $201,072.00

In U.S. dollars, that works out to range from $93,522 to $153,116.

Pricing would seem to be on the high side, but all vehicles sold in Australia are substantially more expensive than they are here in the States (or almost anywhere else).

For comparison, the BMW i3 REX costs $69,900 in Australia, or $64,700 USD and the Volt is $59,990 in the land down under.

We should also note that many plug-in vehicles also come under competitive strain from imported used copies from Aisa, which may effect the long term success of “new” Tesla sales down under.

Great to see. I ordered an S years ago, and then the price came in too steep for me. I received my $6000 deposit back.. Now I have a 3 on order, and will see what the price comes in at. At the time I bought my Volt, it was $62,5000 here. .It was a $1585 per month lease, with zero balance at the ends, and keep the car. So still driving the Volt, and cautious about the Model 3 pricing over here. Wait and see.
Also, a call to GM here, has told me no Volt , No Bolt for Australia at all. So no sales here either. Hi to everyone over there.. Enjoy Inside EVs.

Cool. Yeah the mass market Bolt is really not mass market. Always good to hear from down under, Krikie!

If they switch driving to the other side like majority of the rest of the world…then maybe GM will bring the car there.

You mean the rest of the world, except for the 33% who drive on the left?

I don’t know why we’d change, given a lot of our cars are made in Japan.

Curious, by 33% you mean 33% of the population is in countries that drive on the left? Or 33% of the cars?

I was actually looking for numbers on this, to figure out how large a market RHD-drive car were of the overall car market.

It’s certainly not 33% of countries. AFAIK, only 20-25 countries drive on the left, and of those only India, Japan, the UK, Thailand & Australia were larg(ish) markets. China alone has more than all of them put together.

If the USA would switch to the metric system like majority of the rest of the world now that would work well.

“No Bolt for Australia at all.”

Yes, it’s sad that GM has announced they have no plans to make a right-hand-drive Bolt. Just one of several indications this will be a limited production vehicle.

Well, we can hope that in future model years, GM will expand production, including a RHD version.

Here’s hoping you can get your Tesla Model ≡!

I take to account that vehicles are more expensive in Australia than other comparable country’s. So called “Presteige” cars are indeed expensive. That is because we have. Luxury car tax on vehicles that cost more than approx 55kAUD increase substantially cars for people who like expensive badges. A brand new Toyota Corolla can be had for $20kAUD including all inroad costs, a new top spec Kia Sorento can be had for $55kAUD again including all on road costs. Cars in Australia are also equiped generally better spec wise than most base model cars in the US. Yet people here will still spend 100kAUD in an equivellant Audi Q7 or BMW X5. Not all of the extra cost of the so called premium vehicles are tax however, a very large chunk is simply because the market will bare it. How else can you explain a base model Boxster for 120k. Keeping it simple, you’ll find very good value cars in Australia if you choose not to sucked in by badge snobbery. There is only value in German cars if you are a car enthusiast looking for the high performance models that don’t exist in other brands. Unfortunately, Tesla, is just an… Read more »
