Tesla's Model Y standard range has vanished from its sales website, days after the price dropped by $2,000
- Tesla's Model Y standard range vehicle is no longer listed on the company's sales webpage.
Teslalaunched sales of the SUV in January, and slashed its price just last week.
- It is unknown why the Model Y standard range is no longer listed, or whether the move is permanent.
Tesla has stopped taking orders for its Model Y standard range, the electric carmaker's second-cheapest vehicle, just days after slashing its price by $2,000.On Thursday, the electric carmaker cut the price of its Model Y standard range, which it launched last month, from $41,990 to $39,990, making it just $3,000 more than Tesla's cheapest vehicle, the Model 3 standard range plus.
The $48,990 long range model is now the cheapest available version of its sports utility vehicle. Tesla also sells a performance version with higher top speeds, which costs $60,990.The entry-level version has a lower range of 244 miles, according to estimates by the EPA, compared to the long range version's 326-mile rating. The cheaper model also comes with rear-wheel drive, instead of the all-wheel-drive setup on the long range and performance versions. Tesla began delivering Model Y vehicles in Shanghai, China, in January, but only offered the long range and performance versions. It is selling both models for almost a third less than the price Tesla quoted in August.
The news comes as Tesla ramps up efforts to make a more affordable electric car. In September, CEO Elon Musk said the company would make a $25,000 "fully autonomous" electric car in about three years.
