After the previous week’s price reduction in the basic versions of Model 3 and Model Y — Model Y base price went so close to the Model 3 Standard Range Plus, Tesla might have felt cannibalization of the Model 3 and it became the reason for Model Y Standard’s removal from online ordering.

Lower profit margins might also have been the reason for the discontinuation of the Model Y Standard Range which was only launched last month. This was the only Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) Model Y variant that Tesla had introduced for a short period of time.

Tesla has a history of canceling and then later on bringing back some variants. The Silicon Valley-based automaker or its vibrant CEO Elon Musk has not yet opened up about the reason for the Model Y Standard version’s discontinuation — but there is a chance that it will come back sometime in the near future.
