Official Announcement in About 2 Weeks

Tesla has confirmed on its message board that the Model S electric sedan will soon get a price increase. But if you are on a waiting list, don't panic, this doesn't apply to you. Here are the details:

  1. The price increase will not apply to anyone with an existing reservation prior to the effective date of the price increase and who also configures their car and finalizes their order within a fair, predefined timeframe.
  2. There will be a few "options package" changes as part of the price increase (meaning some things that are currently considered standard equipment may become part of an optional package going forward). These changes will not apply to anyone with an existing Model S reservation prior to the effective date of the price increase who also configures their car and finalizes their order within a fair, predefined timeframe.
  3. All reservation holders who have "deferred" will receive an email regarding the price increase and will have the opportunity to keep current pricing and options packages by finalizing their configuration and order within a fair, predefined time frame, similar to those who did not defer.

All details should be out within about 2 weeks, according to Tesla. While the exact amounts aren't known, I'm not expecting a huge price increase. But we'll have to wait and see...
