Tesla has made its most affordable Model S option even more affordable as it implemented a price reduction overnight. The options have apparently been streamlined ahead of the final unveiling of the $35,000 Model 3 which will be properly revealed in July. Tesla’s cheapest electric car is now the 75kWh Model S which has seen an impressive $7,500 reduction in its price.

Tesla discontinued the 60kWh Model S option just yesterday which was previously the company’s cheapest Model S option at $68,000. The 75kWh option now costs $69,500 after the $7,500 price cut and has become the cheapest Tesla on offer.

The base model also offers more value for money now as Tesla has added the $1,500 all glass roof and automatic rear power liftgate as standard equipment on its cheapest model.

Tesla has also made some other changes. For example, the smart air suspension is no longer offered as an option on the 75kWh Model S while the 72 amp charger is only included with 100kWh models now.

Customers who own an upgradeable 70kWh Model S can move up to 75kWh by unlocking the additional capacity after paying just $500 instead of the $3,500 they had to pay previously.

The company has confirmed that next week it’s going to be implementing slight price increases to its higher end 100D and P100D models but it expects the average selling price to remain almost exactly the same.
