Tesla Inc. has been experiencing tremendous growth not only in its stock price, but also in its demand. The manufacturer can’t keep up with demand as it deals with supply chain issues and growing popularity.

Due to this, Tesla has raised the price for the Model 3 and Model Y on its website by $1,000 for both vehicles. It has already raised prices several times this year. The Model Y is currently $5,500 more expensive than it was back in early June of 2021.

The Model Y has sold out for the remainder of 2021, with the earliest available delivery estimates being quoted for January 2022.

Other changes made to its site is offering a Midnight Silver Metallic as a new free paint option. Before, white was the only free paint color available, but now customers have two choices of a complimentary color.

The price of black paint has also increased from $1,000 to $1,500. Blue paint remains $1,000, and red paint is $2,500.
