Marianne Simmons, a self-professed “Tesla fan girl”, bought her second electric vehicle from the company in September: a white, high-performance Model Y ringing in at more than US$77,000 . Then the company slashed prices and she realised she could have bought the same car today at US$13,000 less.
“I feel like I got duped. I feel like I got taken advantage of as a consumer,” said Simmons, 32, a web designer in Naples, Florida. “Right off the bat, I’m out US$13,306 . It’s such a large reduction that it’s going to affect a lot of people who just bought a vehicle.”
