Here is the new pricing table updated with the information in the letter sent to Tesla Roadster owners on January 16th. This is an unofficial compilation for comparison purposes, based on my understanding and interpretation of the old and new packages, options and prices. Please post any corrections in the comments.
The email describing the new options and pricing did not detail the cut-off between the old pricing and new pricing, but I believe the new pricing applies to all 2008 model year Roadsters which had not already entered production. I will update as details become available.
Note that there are significant changes from the options communicated to owners nearing production earlier in the week.
The following options were previously available and are now available at adjusted prices and in different bundles:
|Original ($)||Current ($)|
|High Power Connector||(included)||3,000|
|Forged Alloy Tesla Wheels||(included)||2,300|
|Paint Armor||approx 1,400||1,495|
|Mobile Connector (120V/15A & 240V/40A)||350||N/A|
|Mobile Connector (120V/15A)||N/A||(included)|
|Mobile Connector (120V/15A) Additional||N/A||600|
|Mobile Connector (240V/30A)||N/A||1,500|
|Upgraded Stereo Head Unit
with Navigation System
|Homelink door opener||(included)||N/A|
(includes above 5 items)
The apparent change in the 240V mobile charger from 40A to 30A may be to satisfy regulatory requirements. I will update this when I find out more from Tesla.
These are new options not previously available:
|Executive Leather Interior||6,000|
|Premium Carbon Fiber and Leather Interior||9,000|
|Clear Carbon Fiber Hardtop||5,000|
|Clear Carbon Fiber Accent Group||9,000|
|Custom Tuned Adjustable Suspension||4,000|
(2yr/24,000 miles, excludes battery)
At this time, we don't know what the performance tires are or how they compare to the current and previous standard tires. I will update when we learn more.
The price increase for owners who had previously locked in their options depends on which options were chosen and which previously standard options the owner is willing to give up. Here are some examples:
|$ 1,000||New base model, losing alloy wheels and SolarPlus windshield, and replacing HPC with 120V/15A mobile connector.|
|$ 6,700||The previous base model configuration with no options added, which includes the HPC, the SolarPlus windshield and the silver forged alloy Tesla wheels; also gets 120V/15A mobile connector.
|$ 9,350||Fully loaded model from previously available options, mobile connector reduced from 240V/40A to 240V/30A.|
