The all-wheel-drive-only Tesla Model S is significantly more expensive than the Model 3.

If you really want to break the bank, the tri-motor Plaid variant sees its price hiked, first from $119,690 to $131,190 after the news dropped that Tesla won't make the 520-mile, higher-performance Plaid+ model, which CEO Elon Musk says is no longer necessary. Now the Plaid runs $135,690. (Source: www.motortrend.com)

The Model X Plaid's range drops to an estimated 313 miles, but like the Model S Plaid, it delivers quicker acceleration and a higher top speed. Prices for this trim start at an eye-watering $126,690 after a recent $4,500 increase.

The Model Y, Tesla's compact SUV, starts at $62,190 (including a recent $4,500 price increase) for the base Long Range model that's capable of going an EPA-estimated 326 miles on a full charge of its battery pack. Yep, Tesla pricing is a rollercoaster. Additionally, Tesla offers the Model Y in a Performance variant that offers an estimated 303 miles of range and wears a $65,190 price tag, which was includes a recent increase of $2,000. The Model Y comes standard with five seats; however, $3,000 adds a small third-row bench to Long Range models, which brings the SUV's seating capacity up to seven. Drop another $1,000 and Tesla adds a tow hitch, which allows users to make the most of the SUV's available 3,500-pound towing capacity. (Source: www.motortrend.com)
