Tesla 2023 Electric Car Price in Australia, Design, Battery Life & Review! Tesla is a company that manufactures “electric cars, enormous batteries, and solar,” to quote the business’ official Twitter account. It was initially a maker of electric vehicles when it was founded in 2003, but it has since broadened its focus to encompass a number of renewable energy activities. Globally, it presently sells three different electric vehicle models: the Model S sedan, Model 3 sedan, and Model X SUV.
Although it hasn’t yet been introduced in Australia, the Model Y SUV is also offered abroad. In 2023, the business also intends to begin producing the sports automobile Roadster and the armored utility vehicle Cybertruck. With plans to be produced at Tesla’s Gigafactory in Nevada, the battery-powered semi-truck known as the Tesla Semi is likewise thought to be in the pre-production stage. One of Tesla’s non-automotive initiatives is the Solar Roof, a fully integrated solar and storage roof for your home.
What is the cost of a Tesla Electric Car in Australia?
The Model 3 is the only Tesla model currently on sale in Australia (local deliveries of the Model X and Model S are on hold but expected to resume by the end of 2022). Be ready to wait a bit for your vehicle because even the Model 3 now has a 9–12 month wait time estimate on Tesla Australia’s website. Prior to taxes and fees, the Model 3 has a starting price of $63,900 for the base rear-wheel-drive model, goes up to $76,200 for the mid-spec Long Range AWD model, and tops out at $88,900 for the Performance AWD model.
But before you factor in on-the-road expenses like stamp duty or CTP, or any state-based subsidies, all Tesla automobiles are subject to a mandated $1375 delivery fee and a $350 order fee. A short visit to Tesla’s Australian design facility at the time of publication reveals drive-away pricing for the base-spec, option-free Model 3 in Victoria of $69,361 (before the state’s $3000 EV rebate).
The total cost will increase by $10,100 before on-road expenses if you choose the full self-driving option, which includes an auto park, auto lane change, navigation on autopilot, and the potential for full self-driving once the software is released. A $350 order fee is required to reserve a Model X, Model S, or Model Y, but the prices and delivery schedules for those models in Australia have not yet been determined.
However, according to Australian pricing that was leaked in April 2022 on the automotive website Chasing Cars, the new Tesla Model Y electric SUV will cost $67,990 plus on-road costs, while the top-of-the-line Model Y Performance was said to cost $98,172 plus on-road costs. The price of a brand-new Tesla Wall Connector for in-home charging is $780 plus the cost of installation, which must be done by a licensed electrician.
