Am I eligible for rebate?
Per the terms of the program, no. The MSRP must be below $55,000. You unfortunately miss by $1. (Wish it said “at or below” - but it doesn’t.)
My recommendation would be to take off FSD and buy it separately. Then you’d be eligible to collect the $5000 rebate.
So right now, the vehicle is $55,000 total.
If you removed FSD, it’d be $48,000. And then you’d get a $5,000 rebate, making the total $43,000. If you then bought FSD by itself - even if the price goes up to $8000, that would bring the total to $51,530. (You’d pay sales tax on FSD bought separately, so that’s where the extra $530 comes from.)
Would still save yourself $3,470!
