After a few weeks on the Tesla website, the automaker removed the option to buy a ‘standard range’ Model Y crossover from its website.
The Standard Range version went on sale in Canada and the US in early January 2021, but now, a month and a half later, the company has withdrawn the $ 56,290 option.
This means that anyone looking to buy a new Model Y now has to pay at least $ 69,990 CAD for the ‘Long Range’ trim.
It’s unclear why Tesla decided to remove the standard-range Model Y from its website, but hopefully the company will add it again at some point in the future. Perhaps Tesla is also suffering from a global chip shortage, or the lower-end model wasn’t selling as well as the electric vehicle (EV) maker hoped.
