Today, Tesla increased the price of the top-of-the-line Model X Plaid version in the United States by $5,000, or almost six percent.

The Tesla Model X Plaid now starts at an MSRP of $94,990 (plus $1,640 in obligatory fees),

but it's still way less expensive than it was before the huge price cut applied to all Model S/Model X versions in September.

The Model X Long Range AWD starts at $79,990, which is very important because a price increase

beyond $80,000 would prevent it from being eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit.

This time, there are no other price changes to the Model 3 or Model Y, but as always in the case of Tesla, the situation is dynamic.
