$7,500 Instant Rebate Off These Tesla Vehicles
The following Tesla vehicles in the U.S. will get an instant $7,500 off the purchase price:
- Model 3 Performance
- Model Y RWD
- Model Y Long Range
- Model Y Performance
- Model X Long Range
The AWD version of the Cybertruck, when it is released later in 2024, will also qualify for the $7,500 rebate. This is because it will be less than $80,000, which qualifies it for the U.S. tax credit as an EV truck.
However, there are two vehicles that will not get this credit. The reason they won’t get this credit is that their batteries are currently sourced from outside the U.S.
The requirements are:
- Battery component sourced from foreign entity of concern (can’t be true)
- Critical minerals sourced from foreign entity of concern (can’t be true)
- Percentage of battery components assembled in North America: 60%
- Percentage of critical minerals sourced from North American or a U.S. free trade partner: 50%
Unfortunately for Tesla, the Model 3 Long Range, and the Model 3 RWD do not qualify for these requirements. This makes the Tesla Model 3 Performance less expensive than the Model 3 Long Range.
Tesla is likely going to do something – and do it fast, to remedy this situation and make the Model 3 Long Range and Model 3 RWD back to being cheaper than the Model 3 Performance.
I think Tesla isn’t going to let this be this way for very long. It’s going to do something about it, and soon.

When Will Tesla Get the Model 3 RWD and Long Range Back to the $7,500 Tax Credit
Tesla is going to have to do something about the Model 3 RWD and Long Range vehicles. They cannot be in the situation they are because these will not be purchased as much without the $7,500 rebate. This is a U.S. tax credit for EVs.
There are multiple options for Tesla to combat this, they are:
Getting the Model 3 Highland in the U.S. is the first thing Tesla should do. This is an improved version of the Model 3 RWD and Model 3 Long Range vehicles. This will make the vehicle more appealing
Tesla has a lithium refinery being built in Texas, and Tesla needs to accelerate building its own batteries in the U.S. It should not rely on CATL in China and other battery manufacturers.
Tesla should immediately raise the price of the Model Y Long Range and Model Y Performance by $2,000
Tesla should immediately lower the price of the Model 3 RWD and Model 3 Long Range by $1,000.
Once these are all done, things should equalize. At the point Tesla gets U.S. batteries, it can raise the price of the Model 3 vehicles that had prices lowered.
