The Y will get $500 directly if you take delivery, not sure how long it will last. There is nothing you need to do to get the $500 rebate.This discussion needs to be revisited. Beginning July 1, 2021, the Model Y is only eligible for the $500 NY Drive Clean Rebate because the program administrators are showing the “base MSRP” for the Model Y Long Range is in excess of $42,000. This, notwithstanding, that the base price of my MYLR is $39,990 on the order sheet. “Long Range AWD” is listed as a $11,500 option. As are the upgraded wheels, FSD, etc.
I’ve been in communications with the NYS program director and I think a recent MYLR window sticker would help restore the greater rebate for Model Ys. But, I don’t have access to a window sticker for a recent delivery (showing the $39900 base price) and my local service center is not being cooperative (or is swamped with deliveries). Does anyone have a window sticker for a recent delivery they can post?
Or, Tesla can actually help us out and contact the program administrators itself and clear up the issue.
