Tesla Model 3 has risen in price in Europe by 2,000 euros. But even after that, the car is still cheaper than at the beginning of the year.
Despite the fact that Tesla has brilliantly coped with the situation of a shortage of components in the market, the company is still forced to increase the cost of its cars against the backdrop of rising prices for components. The company’s cars have already risen in price in the USA and China, and now it has come to Europe: Model 3 in the Old World at once added 2,000 euros to its previous price tag.
As a result, in Germany, for Model 3 in the basic version of Standard Plus, they now ask for 42,000 euros. Not cheap, but … still cheaper than at the beginning of the year. The fact is that at the beginning of the year Model 3 in Europe was offered for 43,000 euros, but in February Tesla reduced the cost to 40,000 euros. So even now, after the rise in price and amid shortages of components, Model 3 in Europe is still cheaper than at the beginning of the year.
Earlier, at a meeting with investors, Elon Musk said that the company is forced to increase the cost of a car due to a shortage of components, but expressed confidence that this measure will be temporary.
