    reported on the Guardian website.
    Tesla to hike UK prices by 5% in the new year

    New(custom) orders; existing stock unchanged, but might want to review any live purchasing decisions you have.

    Drop in exchange rates blamed ...
    (referendum was such a great idea, especially with absolutely zero accountability for the muppets that instigated it, still I suppose the US elected Trump just to prove they wouldn't be outdone)

    Happy Christmas all :)

    Yes, time to get your orders in now. Or grab inventory cars!
    All at least benefit from the referral rebate.

    Keep your eye on the ex demo models esp at the end of a quarter.
    Often these have negligible miles on them.

    I agree though, no way could I justify mine at 100K+ GBP.
    And 150K+ GBP post price increase for a fully optioned P100D is silly money.
    Sadly I think this will see Tesla sales tail off significantly in the UK which is bad news for everyone.

    combination of Tesla hiking the prices as they can sell all they make and exchange rates movement.

    Apparently the price increase has been delayed by 2 weeks:

    "[Tesla] is citing “exceptionally high demand” for the reason to extend the deadline."

    Tesla delays price increase in the UK by 2 weeks citing ‘exceptionally high demand’

    and "Tesla announced a 2-week extension during which potential buyers can still order a Model S or X and take advantage of the unlimited free Supercharging. The rule change will now apply to vehicles ordered after January 15."

    Tesla is extending unlimited Supercharging for cars ordered in the next 2 weeks
