The government pays that $7500 to you; not to Tesla. This tax credit didn’t exist on the Model Y when it came out in early 2020. So, it did drop to $50,000 in 2020, but it was $50,000. Now it’s $53.490 - $7,500, which is $45,990. The LR AWD Model Y never cost this low until now (except for three weeks when it was $500 less at $45,490). It’s a steal at this price. And also, it’s not going to last much longer. The price will start creeping up. There is not a hard $55,000 ceiling; all Musk has to do is put a third row in each Model Y, and he can raise the LR AWD Model Y price without options up to $69,990 to allow $10,000 in options to still slide under the $80,000 ceiling. In reality, he will probably stop somewhere midway between today’s price and $70,000 where he finds the equilibrium between the production output he wants to maintain and the demand at that price level.
