Tesla bumps UK prices by at least £3K – and you’ll only need one guess why

Tesla has announced it is to raise prices in the UK by 5% next year, to account for the post-Brexit fall in the value of sterling.

The EV giant says “currency fluctuations” are to blame for the hike, which will raise the price of the cheapest Model S Sedan by £3,000.

The vehicle, which is currently £58,900 will be £61,845, at the turn of the year (via Engadget).

So, if you’re thinking about buying a Tesla, head to your local showroom this week and save yourself three grand.

The firm does say used vehicles and those displayed in showrooms will not see a price increase.
