Tesla walks back its plan to close most showrooms

AP  |  Detroit 

is walking back its plan to close most of its showrooms worldwide.

The company said Monday that it's still shifting to online sales, but it won't close as many stores as originally thought.

announced last month that it would shutter most of its stores to cut costs so it could make money on the $35,000 Model 3

The $35,000 base Model 3 will still be available but the company will raise prices 3 percent on all other models.

now says it closed 10 percent of its stores, but a few of those will be reopened. Another 20 percent are being evaluated and some could stay open.

The company gave no numbers. It had 378 stores and service centers worldwide and about 100 U.S. stores.
