In addition, the updated Model Y has received over-the-air updates that improved its range to 319 miles on a single charge.
Despite the vehicle’s new and improved features, Tesla has decided to keep the starting price of USD$55,000 across all of its markets. According to Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, the company wanted to keep the starting price to make the updated model accessible to more people.
This approach of balancing affordability and innovation has become a defining characteristic of Tesla’s approach to launching new vehicles. The company has consistently delivered vehicles that feature the latest technological advances without substantially increasing their price tag.
