Tesla added the Model Y Long Range RWD to its loan calculator, listing a surprising price of $48,000 for the new version of the electric SUV.
Currently, Tesla only offers the Model Y in two versions: Long Range All-Wheel-Drive and Performance.
When Tesla launched the Model Y in March 2019, the company listed four different versions of the electric SUV: Standard Range, Long Range, Dual Motor AWD (with a Long Range battery), and Performance (also with a Long Range battery).
However, earlier this month, CEO Elon Musk announced that Tesla was canceling the Standard Range version of the Model Y and instead, it will only add a Long Range Rear-Wheel-Drive version to the lineup.
Now Tesla has added the new version of the car to its finance and leasing calculator showing a price of $48,000:
Update: Tesla has removed the option to select the Long Range Rear-Wheel Drive after we posted this article.
It’s surprising since Musk hinted that the price would be closer to $45,000 and it’s only $2,000 cheaper than the Model Y Long Range Dual Motor.
However, the version of the vehicle is still not in Tesla’s Model Y online configurator and therefore, it could not be the final price.
Musk said that that the Model Y Long Range RWD will hit the market in “a few months.”
The CEO also said that it will be rated at over 300 miles of range on a single charge.
