    Noticed the 100D came out today. The price difference between the 90 and 100 is $3000, or $300/kwh. The price to upgrade a 60-75 is $7000, or $466/kwh.

    Seems odd.. am I thinking about this wrong?

    Pricing is generally more about marketing than it is about costs. I would guess the 90 will be phased out and they don't want to end up with too big a price difference between the 75 and the 100 when they do.

    Ditto, but since I'm in a 24 month lease, I'd like to make it even less. No more than $3900 (from the model builder on the web, ONLY changing from a 60 to 75 is $110/month lease increase. Take that 20, I'm already in 4 months (or 24) months x 110 and I'd like to pay more like $2200.

    Wow, for US a good deal. In Germany from 60D to 75D it is 9700 Euro incl. 19% tax, so somewhat comparable to US, but from 90D to 100D it is 7000 Euro which is more than twice than for US. But still a good deal, especially when considering that the real usable difference between the 60 and 75 is around 10kWh (62 vs 72kWh usable capacity) and between 90D and 100D more around 13 kWh (83 vs 96 kWh).

    They have cut down on the interior options and the free supercharging for life is taken out, so that should mitigate some of the price increase. From what I've gathered countries like the US and Norway have low price hikes from 90D to 100D. This could have to do with inventory turnover? In countries with low sales Tesla will likely get stuck with 90D inventory cars if the 100D is priced too competetively but they count on moving the 90s easily in markets with high turnover? In that case the 100D price should come down in the rest of the markets when the 90D is gone. Maybe.

    Compare to the 70 -> 75 upgrade at $3000 before delivery. Now that's a bad deal!
