That’s why Tesla is raising the price of the Model Y.

The price became 10,000 kroner overnight.

Increasingly expensive: now the Y costs more than 10,000 crowns, but then you do not have to think about whether you really need a towing bar.

Tesla prices can occasionally vary slightly over a short period of time, as exchange rates change or accessories are added or removed from cars. An observant reader contacted us after noticing that Model Y prices had risen by 10,000 overnight.

This means that the Model Y Long Range has risen from NOK 549,990 to NOK 559,990. The price of the Performance model has also increased, and is now just under 600,000 NOK.

Tek knows the reason for the higher prices is that towbar is now a standard. An additional hitch installation was provided before, for the same price that came to 10,000 kroner and which has now increased in price.

For the Model Y delivered next year, the price increase is NOK 12,500 with taxes on top. put another way; The long-range version was to cost 562.488 kroner with the addition of VAT to yesterday’s price of just under 550 thousand kroner. With the towbar as a “mandatory” accessory, the price of the car ends up being around 575,000 crowns.

A similar calculation for expensive electric cars can be found in this case.
