For many owners, the extra costs involved in choosing another color than the free option in the Tesla configurator is not even a consideration. The reason is pretty clear, depending on the location (Europe, US, China) you might pay around 2500$ or even more.

Most people therefore go with the free or included option that you have once you choose your car. At the moment this is the white color (Europe/China) which is without a surprise the most common paint on the streets. For the US the Midnight Silver Metallic is the free color you can take when you make an order.

So if you want to have a different color than Tesla has in the configurator you are better off wrapping your car. Most people won't choose Tesla for a different paint, as the choice is mostly limited to 5 colors.

  • White (everywhere)

  • Black (everywhere)

  • Red Multi-Coat (US/China)

  • Deep Blue Metallic (everywhere)

  • Midnight Cherry Red(Europe)

  • Quicksilver (Europe)

  • Midnight Silver Metallic (US/China)

  • Ultra Red (Europe/China/US)

The different paints you can choose from are also coming with way different prices depending on your location, so if you are interested in the pricing check out your country and the specific price policy that Tesla has.

With the limited colors you can choose from it is for some owners the right choice to choose the free color and then wrap the Tesla Model Y with the color you want for your car, which you can't choose from Tesla directly. In some countries the paint you pay extra for is more expensive at Tesla than wrapping a car, that is also something you have to keep in mind when choosing a color.
