Tesla Pricing: How Much Does it Cost in Australia

Founded in 2003, Tesla's mission is to accelerate the use of renewable energy around the world—one car at a time. While all fuel-efficient cars are a good investment, Tesla is promoting the electric car to drive better, faster and more fun than gas. But what makes Tesla so special and how much does it cost to buy a Tesla in Australia?

What does Tesla Sell?

Tesla is the largest seller of electric cars in Australia. According to recent figures from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industry (FCAI) and CarAdvice, Tesla's electric vehicle registrations in Australia have reached a record number by 2020.

The FCAI released figures in January 2021 that said 1,769 electric cars would be sold in Australia by 2020. However, this number does not include Tesla. Tesla has never released figures, but national registration data from CarAdvice found Tesla sold 3430 electric cars in Australia last year. This is an increase of 16.3% compared to those registered in 2019, and these results mean that Tesla has sold almost twice the number of electric cars in the last two years compared to other electric car sales.

Why Do People Love Tesla?

Let’s see why people love Tesla cars. It's a cheap electric car, a good family car, and the range and performance are top. The best-selling car is the Model 3, and it is the top-selling all-electric car in the world. Model S is built for speed and endurance with a top speed of 250 km/h. It can accelerate from 0 km/h to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds – faster than any supercar on the market! Model X has all-wheel drive, with independent traction on the front and rear wheels, so it can drive smoothly in all weather conditions.

The standard range models are packed with features and include automatic locking and unlocking, automatic folding mirrors and parking sensors - to name a few. Available upgrades include more colour options, different interior configurations, upgraded wheels and full self-driving capability.

Tesla Pricing Fluctuations:

Tesla prices are fluctuating depending on the seasons - or so. According to the market demand, the company is adjusting the price. In April 2020, the price of the premium electric SUV Tesla Model S and the Tesla X increased due to the falling Australian dollar and the increase in luxury car tax. After May of last year, Tesla lowered the price, and the Tesla S and Tesla X saw price cuts. This was due to a 6% drop in the price for both models in the US & which reflects the Australian market. The truth is that price increases or decreases can strike at any time, so if you're investing in Tesla, keep an eye on your local market.

Good investment

There are several things that make Tesla a good investment. From the start running costs are much lower than an internal combustion engine car. While battery replacement can be expensive, your fuel costs will be even higher in the long run. A recent test of the Model S battery showed that it is still functioning at 98% efficiency after seven years of use. Electric motors are a good return on investment in the growing market.

Tesla is the best in terms of technology - no buttons or buttons, everything is just on the centre console. It gives you complete control over everything in your car by tapping the screen. You can even play and stream movies! There are also external cameras in the cars, which you can use to record and identify any threats to your car. 

Autopilot is another bonus – advanced driver assistance systems that include things like adaptive cruise control, self-parking and lane keeping. Basically, this self-driving package, which is an optional extra, is designed to reduce the amount of work you have to do as a driver. Keep in mind that the company is constantly improving it.

Conclusion on Tesla pricing:

Tesla prices range from AU$60,000 and a half to AU$200,000. The Tesla Model 3 now retails for $66,900 plus on-road costs. The Tesla Model Y is not yet available in Australia but is now on sale in the US for between $52,990 and $60,990. Pricing in Australia is not yet known. The Tesla Model S sold for around AU$132,000 in Australia, while the Tesla Model X was around AU$157,000 (excluding on-roads). There's also the Tesla Cybertruck, which hasn't made it to Australia yet. If or when it does, it's expected to sell for nearly $39,990 for the lower-end while the top end is nearly $103,000. The truck is currently on pre-order where a deposit of AU$150 is held to secure your truck.

Please note that shipping costs may be high and these prices are not included in on-road costs. Your best bet is to do your research, visit the website and see what the current rate will be.
