Never has the time been so ripe to score a Tesla as right now.
Because while Elon Musk has made it abundantly clear that Tesla doesn’t need to raise money — it could if it wanted to — that doesn’t mean that they don’t need money, ya know, in general.
According to Electrek, a number of Tesla owners have received a little note in their inboxes from their regional dealerships flagging an up to $30,000 discount on the original configuration price of Model S and Model X P100D makes. And if purchasing isn’t your thing, the message also notes that vehicles can be leased for just $1,500 for the Model S and $1,600 for the Model X.
But Tesla is known for their strict no negotiation, no discount sales principles. A principle that, truth be told, we’ve always found super refreshing. So, isn’t this a contradiction?
Tesla issued a firm statement regarding the circulating emails, ensuring that the price adjustment is for test drive vehicles, service
“No Tesla customer ever has to be concerned about not getting a “good deal.” A “good deal” is code for how a company takes advantage of a customer. We don’t do “deals.” We treat everyone the same. This will never change, ever,” the statement says.
But hey, we’ll readily take a little wear and tear for a $30K cut.
