Tesla has lowered the prices of its Model Y electric SUV in Australia for the second time in less than a month.

The base Model Y now starts at $60,900 before on-road costs, a $3,000 reduction from its price announced just 19 days earlier, and $4,500 less than it was at the start of April.

The Long Range All-Wheel Drive model is now available for $69,900, also down $3,000, while the Performance All-Wheel Drive version remains priced at $82,900.

These price changes occur as Tesla adjusts to the global slowdown in electric vehicle demand and heightened competition.

The Model Y has been among the more frequently purchased electric vehicles in Australia, according to the latest VFACTS data from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries.

Looking ahead, the 2024 Model Y will feature several updates, including new black 'Gemini' wheel covers for the base and Long Range models, and three additional colour options.

However, the Australian versions will not include all the enhancements seen in the Chinese market, such as improved driving range and interior updates.

An extensive update for the Model Y, referred to as 'Juniper', is expected next year, which will introduce changes similar to those in the recent Model 3 refresh.

Tesla's recent pricing adjustments reflect a strategy to adapt to market conditions and maintain competitiveness within the electric vehicle sector.
