January 13th, will mark the passing of the Tesla Model S 75D and Model X 75D. Tesla will no longer be taking orders for the 75kWh after that date. Elon Musk announced on Twitter that the entry-level model will be discontinued. The models will still be available, starting at the trim level 100D, which is a dual-motor with a 100-kWh battery. On Monday, the base price for the Tesla Model S will jump $18,000, starting at $94,000. For a Model X, the price goes up $15,000, at more than $97,000.

The more expensive version of each car travels a longer distance in a single charge, and accelerates faster. The various options help catapult pricing, including autopilot. Tesla consumers who are price-oriented, will have the Model 3 available starting at $44,000. Musk is strategic with his business. Speculation states the Model 3 being a profitable options for the company. Making more room for it’s production follows that ideology.
