Tesla Model Y Standard Range Axed from Website, Long Range Sees $1,000 Price Drop

Tesla has updated its website tonight to no longer offer a Model Y Standard Range Rear-Wheel Drive, and instead only offer two Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive options.

Of the two Dual Motor configurations available, the Long Range has also dropped in price by $1,000 USD. Here’s what’s available now:

  • Long Range AWD – $48,990 USD (was $49,990 USD)
  • Performance AWD – $60,990 USD

It’s unclear why Tesla removed the entry Standard Range RWD, which was the most affordable Model Y yet.

Just three days ago, Tesla lowered the price of the entry Standard Range by $2,000 USD, to start at $39,990 USD. It’s unclear if this was a website error, or a permanent move. It doesn’t make sense to have a price drop, then remove the vehicle in question days later?

But for now, the Standard Range RWD Model Y is not available on Tesla.com and is also missing from the Canadian configurator as well.
