Tesla Model Y: Australian pricing leaked

Australian pricing for the highly-anticipated Tesla Model Y electric SUV has leaked before it was due to be published on the Tesla website, according to a new report.

The price premium for the new Tesla Model Y electric SUV in Australia will cost between $4000 and $10,000 more than the latest pricing for the Tesla Model 3 sedan.

According to leaked pricing published by Australian motoring website Chasing Cars this morning, the starting price for a new Tesla Model Y electric SUV will be $67,990 plus on-road costs.

The top-of-the-range Tesla Model Y Performance is said to cost from $98,172 plus on-road costs, according to leaked priced published by the motoring website.

The Tesla Model Y – which is now the electric-car specialist’s biggest-selling model globally – was originally due in Australia in the second half of last year.

However, production and shipping delays throughout the global pandemic have pushed the first Australian deliveries of the new Tesla Model Y into the first half of this year.

Exact arrival timing for the new Tesla Model Y is yet to be confirmed, however Drive understands the first shipments are due mid-year.

According to the media report, Australian pricing for the Tesla Model Y came via a leaked document intended for “corporate and industry customers”. The Tesla Model Y has the potential to double Tesla’s sales in Australia in the coming years.

Tesla is the biggest-seller of electric vehicles in Australia by a significant margin.

Last year, Tesla sold more than 12,000 examples of its Model 3 sedan – outselling its nearest electric-car rival by almost 10-to-one.
