    Just looked at my car today to see if delivery or anything had changed.

    It now shows a £6900 price reduction.

    A pleasant surprise.

    I wonder why? Does anyone else see the same thing?

    The pound has probably strengthened about 4% versus the dollar since my order. The cut is 8%.

    But they have not changed the list price. It is still the same.

    I have seen some speculation of other people getting cuts in Europe.

    I wonder if the 75 is going to be replaced by an 85 and you will have the option of a 85 at the same price or sticking with a 75 for a discount.

    that would be awesome, especially if you were prepared to spend the money already

    Has your MX been built and awaiting shipping? Or still to be built?

    Have you figured out what caused the discount yet? Anyone else had mysterious discounts applied?

    Well, not in the UK, but in Germany.

    Took delivery of my MX on monday. Originally (when ordering) the car was priced higher than today. Tesla charged today's list price, which was after two price reductions:

    - general reduction of all prices for MX
    - exchange rate adjustment

    Legally probably they would not have to do it, but it was the right thing to do.

    What an amazing company. I cannot envision any other car manufacturer to be so fair to their customers.

    Actually it is an asymmetry in favor of the customer:

    Price reductions are passed on
    Price increases between ordering and delivery, not

    To have some comparison, what did the overall discount amount to?

    Sorry to say that having contacted him, my SA says it is an administrative error.

    Were price reductions more than deposit?

    I can't really ask them to honour a price cut that I wasn't expecting and there was no reason for. It just appeared randomly.
