On December 1, Tesla unexpectedly discounted Model 3 and Y vehicles by up to $3,750 for customers interested in purchasing Model 3s and Ys that were already in inventory through the end of the year. This rebate increases to $7,500 and includes 10,000 free Supercharging miles.
Twitter user @Wang_made first shared the news and a screenshot of Tesla, which also shows the offer on its website. On its website, Tesla said it is adding a Supercharging credit of up to 10,000 miles for customers who take delivery of a new Tesla vehicle between December 15 and December 31.

The free credit will be credited to the owner’s Tesla account in January 2023 and will be valid for two years from the date of delivery. For owners who buy the base Model 3, that price will be after incentives and rebates of $7,500.
The discount comes just in time for the holiday season, one of the busiest shopping seasons of the year globally. With Christmas only four days away, Tesla clearly has an end-of-quarter and end-of-year push for discount sales. Tesla is working to break its record of producing and delivering over one million units in 2021.
During Tesla’s Q1 2022 earnings call, Elon Musk emphasized that the goal was to produce 20 million units annually. This was before the opening of Giga Texas and a few months after the opening of Giga Berlin. He also said that it looks like Tesla will be able to produce more than 5 lakh cars this year.
Tesla may reach the goal set by Elon Musk during that call. In China, the company has had a busy fourth quarter with a steady stream of vehicles loading transport vessels since the quarter began. In Germany, Tesla Giga Berlin recently started producing 3,000 Model Ys on a weekly basis and operates in three shifts.
