Tesla To Discontinue Sales Of Lowest-Prices Models S, X

It also delivered a total 245,240 cars in full-2018, which is more than Tesla's deliveries for all prior years, the company said.

Musk added that Tesla will be moving away from labeling its vehicles with numerical designations for their battery size in favor of the naming system used for the Model 3, which is now available in Mid Range, Long Range and Performance versions. The Model 3, on the other hand, will be offered with no fewer than three batteries plus rear- and all-wheel drive.

That Lexus luxury SUV (which is made by Toyota) finished 2018 second on the list of best-selling luxury vehicles, followed by more luxury SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz GLC (an estimated 62,435 units sold) and the Audi Q5 (61,835 units), according to Kelley Blue Book. Musk confirmed this was the case, dismissing concern that Tesla might begin to phase out the Model S and the Model X.

The starting price for the 75kWh version of the Model S in New Zealand is NZ$132,720, with the Model X at NZ$142,520, while with a 100kWh battery they are NZ$161,820 and NZ$167,120, respectively.

San Francisco: Tesla will stop selling the lowest-range versions of its Model S sedans and Model X SUVs from Monday, the electric vehicle maker's CEO Elon Musk said. Musk admitted this morning that some of Tesla's more innovative technology is facing a tough reception from worldwide regulators.

Since falling by 9.7% in the first two days of trading of the year to test support at the US$300 level, Tesla's stock price has appreciated by 14% since then.

Meanwhile, despite strong sales numbers from the Model 3, Tesla is already off to an up-and-down start to 2019. That's about equal to the number given out in all of 2017. The two companies have done plenty of sharing over the years, including of engineers and materials.
