Tesla has upped the price on its facelifted Model S and Model X in Australia.

After launching the Model S Long Range at $129,990 excluding on-road costs and the Luxury Car Tax, its price has jumped by $12,000 to $141,990 before on-roads and LCT.

The Model S Plaid will now cost $186,990 excluding ORC/LCT, up $12,000 on the price announced in June 2021.

Tesla also lists drive-away prices including on-road costs and Luxury Car Tax. They’re listed at the bottom of this story.

Meanwhile, the Model X Long Range will kick off at $161,990 before ORC/LCT, up $12,000.

The Model X Plaid price remains unchanged at $174,990 excluding ORC/LCT.

The Tesla Model S and X received an update headlined by some dramatic interior changes and a new Plaid tri-motor flagship earlier in 2021.
