Tesla is hiking its U.S. prices, as the electric vehicle maker battles rising aluminum costs and the global supply chain crisis.

According to its website, the Model S list price has gone up to $109,490, from $104,490 earlier in the month.

The Model Y has climbed to $67,990, from $64,990.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk earlier this month was reported to have said he has a “super bad feeling” about the global economy as he announced a plan to cut 10% of salary jobs.
