Chicago Tribune. Tesla has raised the price of its all-electric Roadster by $6,000.
Darryl Siry, vice president of sales and marketing for Tesla Motors, said the price has gone up because the Roadster is based on the Lotus Elise. Weakness in the value of the dollar versus the pound has boosted the cost of parts imported from Britain.
The price increase took effect with orders after June 15. Tesla will honor a $92,000 sticker on the 464 cars ordered before then, Siry said.
