There are multiple Tesla models to choose from and there are also different colors each EV can be purchased in. In terms of the color choices, it doesn’t matter which Tesla a consumer chooses considering the Model S, 3, X, and Y all come with the same color options. However, the color a consumer does choose can actually affect the price they pay for their new electric vehicle.
With the company having managed to establish itself as a first-choice in the minds of many consumers, Tesla has grown to become one of the most popular and well-known EV makers over the years. There are a number of reasons for this including the tech inside its vehicles, the expansive charging network that helps to relieve any worries about running out of power while on a long journey, and the choice of customizations available.
When placing an order on the Tesla website, consumers can customize various elements of the vehicle including the paint, the wheels, the interior, and whether to add Full Self-Driving. The latter of which is what Teslas have become known for and increases the cost by $12,000. When it comes to the paint, any Tesla vehicle can be ordered in either Pearl White, Solid Black, Midnight Silver Metallic, Deep Blue Metallic, or Red Multi-Coat.
Color Can Affect The Price Of A Tesla
If wanting to keep the cost of a Tesla purchase as low as possible then Pearl White is the only color that’s included in the price for all models. However, if opting for the Model 3 or the Model Y, consumers can choose between either Pearl White or Midnight Silver Metallic at no extra cost. If buying a Model S or a Model X, Midnight Silver Metallic will cost an additional $1,500. Deep Blue Metallic adds to the price of all of the EVs, increasing the cost by $1,000 on the Model 3 and Y, and by $1,500 on the Model S and X. Regardless of the model, choosing any Tesla in Solid Black will up the price by $1,500. However, Red Multi-Coat is the most expensive color overall, with the price rising by $2,000 on the Model 3 and Model Y, and by $2,500 on the Model S and X.
It’s also worth noting that the paint is not the only color choice a buyer has when ordering a Tesla. The company also allows the customization of the interior and there are typically two or three colors to choose from, depending on the model. On all Tesla models, the All Black interior is included for free. With the Model 3 and Model Y, buyers can upgrade to ‘Black and White’ for an additional $1,000, while the same upgrade (with a Walnut Décor) will cost $2,000 on the Model S and X. Those ordering a Model S or a Model X from Tesla also have the option of changing the interior color to Cream (also with a Walnut Décor) for an additional $2,000.
