Tesla just raised the price off all cars $700 if you don't live in MA or RI

So a Vermonter here. I just ordered a model Y last week. I thought there must have been a mistake somehow as the only way I could get the car was to pick it up in Paramus NJ. I sure didn't have to do that for my Model 3. I called Tesla and they said it must be a mistake and to let the order "mature" for a week or so and it will be fixed. Well, the week has passed and after talking to a rep from the Peabody center, I found out that as of November, no more delivery included in the price. Head to New Jersey or It is now an additional 700 above the stock destination charge. And of course, we can't pick it up in MA or RI

Why not Mt Kisco (where several NH friends have picked up)? Why not RI (which does not charge non-residents sales tax, like MA does)?

You can pick it up in MA. You just have to pay the sales tax. You can respond to the state for that by not doing business within their borders.

It’s not a Tesla issue.

Actually it is a Tesla Issue. They are eliminating delivery in states that they choose to not have a presence in. Vermont would love to have a Tesla store. On top of that, there is already a delivery charge in the pricing, and that was how my 3 ad my son's Y were delivered.

They are not eliminating delivery. It’s just no longer free. But still less than state sales tax on a vehicle.

It has never been free, there is a 1200 destination charge already. And the sales tax is just a PITA as Vermont credits the tax already paid. I'd rather the tax go to my state.
