Tesla Model S gets slight price decrease in Canada

Tesla has lowered the price of its two Model S models, making them a bit more affordable. In Canada, the Long Range Plus version now costs $ 101,990 CAD, which is a drop of $ 4,000 from its previous price of $ 105,990 based on our previous report. The more powerful Performance model now costs $ 124,990, which is a $ 6,000 drop from the previous price of $ 130,990. I'm not sure how much the Plaid model costs, but if you're spending $ 189,990 on a car I don't think a $ 4,000 to $ 6,000 price difference is going to make a difference. You can check the car in Tesla website. Via: Tesla north
