Tesla to stop selling the lowest-priced versions of its Model S and X vehicles on Monday, Elon Musk tweets

Tesla will stop selling the lowest-priced versions of its Model S sedans and Model X SUVs from Monday, the automaker’s CEO Elon Musk wrote in a tweet late on Wednesday.

The Model S and X are Tesla’s second and third major lines of electric vehicles, and are higher-priced lines compared to its newest Model 3. The 75 kWh version of the Model S and X that are being retired come with a battery that garners a range of 259 miles for the Model S, and a 237 miles for the Model X.

Higher-end versions of the S and X, equipped with a 100 kWh battery, will still be made and sold by Tesla, but at a higher price. Following the changes announced by Musk, the starting price for a new Model S will be $94,000 and the starting price for a Model X will be $97,000 from next week.
