Car trouble sucks. Being stranded because an old beater breaks down is bad. Being stranded in a new car is worse, but being stranded in a new Tesla would top either. This poor driver in Florida, whose Tesla Model 3 was stuck to a Supercharger, knows all about it.
Tesla doesn’t do incentives like most automakers do, but that doesn’t mean that Tesla doesn’t play games with the prices of its cars. Because it does that plenty, and usually by surprise, and usually for reasons only known to Tesla.
For the vast majority of American commuters, there isn’t a better daily back-and-forth commuter car than the Tesla Model Y Dual Motor Long Range. The Model Y achieves things that no other car can, which makes it exceptional in a field of largely unexceptional competitors.
