Tesla Owners Are Angry and Frustrated After Vehicle Prices Slashed


Gary Davis and his husband, Jim, had decided they would buy a Model Y SUV from Tesla by March of this year. 

But in December Chief Executive Elon Musk announced an unprecedented discount of $7,500, plus 10,000 miles of free supercharging, for anyone who ordered and took delivery of a Model 3 sedan or a Model Y SUV before Jan. 1. 

Gary, 65, a retired IBM employee, and Jim figured they got a great deal. After doing the math, they believed that the discount offered by the electric-vehicle leader was more attractive than the federal tax credit, which was to come into effect Jan. 1. And not all Model Y variants were eligible for the federal tax credit.
