Tesla To Retire Lowest-Range Versions of its Model S, X Vehicles

The price for a new Model S will start at $94,000 and the starting price for a Model X will be $97,000 from next week, according to Musk's tweet-announcement

Tesla will stop selling the lowest-range versions of its Model S sedans and Model X SUVs from Monday, the electric car maker’s CEO Elon Musk said. “Starting on Monday, Tesla will no longer be taking orders for the 75 kWh version of the Model S & X,” Musk revealed in a tweet on Wednesday, while asking people interested in buying those vehicles to place their orders latest by Sunday.

Higher-end versions of the S and X, equipped with a 100 kWh battery, will still be made and sold by Tesla, but at a higher price, CNBC reported, adding that Tesla did not respond to inquires as to why the S and X offerings were pared back.
