(Reuters) – Tesla Inc <TSLA.O> has increased the price for its new Model 3 sedan launched last week by $1,000 to $46,000, according to the company’s website.

The electric carmaker surprised markets by launching the new model on Oct. 18 in a move that came as U.S. tax breaks for Tesla cars are about to decrease.

Tesla is scheduled to report quarterly results after market close on Wednesday.
