The most recent price hikes come amid wider concerns over how the company is being impacted by economic issues.

Earlier this month, Tesla CEO Elon Musk told Tesla executives via email he had a "super bad feeling" about the economy and wanted to cut 10% of the company's salaried staff.

Insider reported on Wednesday that these layoffs had already begun across the company's workforce.

Tesla has also delayed delivery of some of its long-range vehicles by up to a month in the US, according to Reuters. The company has been struggling with the supply of computer chips and the rising price of raw materials in the last year.

The company has also faced challenges in its global production due to China's strict zero-COVID policy. Tesla's Shanghai Gigafactory, responsible for half of Tesla's global production in 2021, was forced to close for three weeks in March 2022 due to rising COVID-19 cases.

Insider previously reported that Tesla delivered a record number of vehicles in the first quarter of 2022, despite these challenges.

Elon Musk tweeted in April: "This was an *exceptionally* difficult quarter due to supply chain interruptions & China zero Covid policy." Adding that "key suppliers saved the day."
