About two weeks after Tesla lowered the prices of its Model S and Model X models in the US by $5,000 to $10,000, Tesla Israel began to offer a discount on stock of new cars from both models, with no change in the list prices. Last night, Tesla Israel updated the car offers from the stock on its website
, and added for the first time the saloon model and the crossover based on it. So far, only the Model 3 and Model Y models have been offered in this way.
These are the most expensive models in the American electric car manufacturer's offer, which began to be delivered in Israel only last December. In contrast to the Model 3 models that come to us from the Tesla factory in Shanghai, China, and the Model Y that comes From the Tesla factory in Berlin, Germany, the two are manufactured at the company's parent factory in California, USA.
Both models are offered in the "regular" version, with 670 hp and dual drive.

So how much can you save?
Model S ready for immediate delivery is offered for NIS 666,000, a discount of NIS 46,000 from the list price.
As mentioned, this is the regular model of the S, which accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 quick seconds, reaches 250 km/h and a relatively long range, 634 official km. The proposed model comes in white color, with rims 19 inches, interior finish in black and white, and the new Yoke steering wheel, resembling an airplane steering wheel. The
higher priced Model X models, from a shipment that will soon arrive in Israel, are offered at a discount of NIS 50-52 thousand, and at a starting price of NIS 697 thousand for the cheapest model The most in the range, equipped with 20-inch rims, in a five-seat model with a black and white finish. For an additional NIS 46,000, you can get an X model in a 6-seat configuration with a black exterior color and a black finish in the passenger compartment. The X models also come with the Yoke steering wheel The performance: 3.9 seconds, 250 km/h and 576 km.
Because of the long waiting time since Tesla began accepting orders in Israel in February 2021, both models have become hundreds of thousands of shekels more expensive than their starting prices.
On the Yad2 website yesterday, it was possible to find 37 cars for sale of both models, at a discount of about NIS 200,000 from their list prices, including the powerful "Plaid" versions that are not currently offered for purchase at a discount from the company's inventory.
The current move may oblige car owners to lower their prices further, although they will still make a profit on them.
