Tesla Slashing Prices on Model Y to Reduce Inventory

Tesla has announced significant discounts on its Model Y SUV, with price cuts of up to $7,500 in some cases. The electric carmaker, led by CEO Elon Musk, is lowering prices on the SUV as it grapples with broader sales challenges and looks to clear out inventory. The discounts vary across different versions of the Model Y, with some examples including the Performance All-Wheel Drive model priced at $49,040 (down from $54,490), the Long Range All-Wheel Drive model at $44,990 (down from $49,990), and the Rear-Wheel Drive model at $39,470 (down from $46,990).

In its latest quarterly report, Tesla reported producing 433,371 vehicles but only delivering 386,810. The delivery numbers fell short of Wall Street analysts’ expectations, showing a 20% drop from the prior quarter and an 8% drop from the same period last year. This marks the first time since 2020 that Tesla has seen a year-over-year decrease in quarterly deliveries. The company attributed the drop in delivery volume to challenges such as production ramp for the updated Model 3, an arson attack at its Berlin Gigafactory, and supply chain issues related to the Red Sea conflict. Softening demand in the EV market may also be contributing to Tesla’s sales woes.

Following the release of its quarterly report, Tesla’s shares fell more than 5% and have dropped by about 30% over the past year. The company’s struggle to meet delivery targets and the price cuts on the Model Y are indicative of the challenges it faces in the competitive EV market.
