Tesla axes the cheapest Model Y from its line-up
You can now no longer buy the product Elon Musk never wanted in the first place!
Tesla is no longer offering the cheapest Model Y variant just a month after it launched which may be to do with its 'low range'.
The Model Y Standard Range RWD has been removed from the Tesla's online configurator. With an EPA-estimated range of 244 miles and a starting price of $41,990, the Standard Range RWD was one of the cheaper ways to get a Tesla, but now it doesn't exist anymore.
Tesla has been slashing the price of the Model Y over the last few weeks as it got to below $40,000. So, why it's disappeared forever is unknown, but there are a few reasons as to why we think it disappeared.
The first, is perhaps Tesla are experiencing supply problems meaning they can't shift enough product, or it's because of its low range.
This Model Y has an estimated range of 244 miles which comes at a time when Elon Musk said he wouldn't sell a car with less than 250 miles. So, no one know what is going on.
It is however, likely we will see the return of the cheapest Model Y in the coming months with perhaps a few tweaks and maybe some more range.
