Can you negotiate with Tesla?

Is there a way to negotiate with Tesla when buying a new car as you would at a normal car dealership, or do you just have to accept the listed price? I want to buy a Tesla but prefer to haggle over car prices because I usually get a lower price.

does not offer price negotiation options when purchasing a new vehicle. You’ll have to pay the vehicle price set by Tesla if you want to purchase the vehicle new.
Of course, you can always opt for a used Tesla instead. In cases like this,
private sellers
might be willing to negotiate the price with you. However, used Teslas are often more expensive than new ones due to limited availability. As a result, you might pay more anyway if you opt for a private sale.
Other brands—from Ford to Mercedes-Benz—are now selling equally impressive all-electric vehicles, and may be more flexible and open to negotiations. So, if you’re looking for a deal and don’t have your heart set on a Tesla specifically, it’s worth shopping around!
