Tesla Modifies Free Color Choice for Model 3 and Model Y in North America
In North America, Tesla has made a change to its lineup of default paint colors for the Model 3 and Model Y. The company has replaced the widely seen Pearl White Multi-Coat with a new color called Midnight Silver Metallic.
The good news for customers is that the new standard paint option comes at no additional cost. However, those who prefer the Pearl White Multi-Coat or Deep Blue Metallic will have to pay an extra $1,000, while Solid Black will add $1,500 and Red Multi-Coat will increase the starting MSRP by $2,000.
These changes can already be found on Tesla's US online configurator for the Model 3 and Model Y. It's important to note that the Model S and Model X still retain the Pearl White Multi-Coat as their standard body color.
Since June 2019, Pearl White Multi-Coat has been the free color option for the Model 3, Model S, and Model X. In the case of the Model Y, it became the default color in March 2020. Prior to that, Solid Black was the standard option, which explains why black and white Teslas dominate the roads.
There have been some rumors going around about the new colors of the Tesla Cybertruck. However, the standout feature of the Cybertruck is its unique cold-rolled stainless steel exoskeleton, which doesn't need any painting. Elon Musk suggested that customers could customize their Cybertrucks by wrapping them in various colors and easily change the wrap whenever they desire.
