In recent times, Tesla has been infuriated by early-paid owners because of frequent price cuts on the domestic Model 3, calling it a “cut-out.” There are also netizens in this regard, since dare to buy Tesla models, you have to have the awareness of leeks. May 14 (UPI) — Tesla today announced a second cut in sales of domestic electric cars this month.
A Tesla spokesman said the price cut applied to the domestic long-range Model 3, with a price drop of Rmb22,500. It said the price cut would make up for the purchase tax exemption, which will be abolished later this year, meaning consumers will continue to pay Rmb344,050 for the long-term Model 3.
It is worth mentioning that the price cut is less than half a month away from Tesla’s last May 2 claim that the domestic Model 3 has no price adjustment plans. Tesla’s “reversal” speed really surprised the crowd.
Interestingly, the attention of Tesla’s netizens are very familiar with the announcement of no price reduction is its consistent approach, and the message under the microblog, “Standing post as proof, not three months, the domestic Model 3 long-term battery version will certainly reduce prices”, did not expect to be in its words to become a god prophecy.
Tesla’s current domestic website shows that the Model 3 long-range version starts at 366,550 yuan, minus the estimated $22,500 in new energy subsidies, the actual price is 344,050 yuan, the same as the price after Tesla announced the price.
It is understood that the first batch of Shanghai super factory production long-range after-drive Model 3 has been released, and will be delivered to consumers this month. Compared to Tesla’s previous claims, both the offline and delivery dates are ahead of schedule.
This may also be related to the new energy subsidy policy, after the introduction of new energy vehicles promotion subsidy new regulations, the provisions to enjoy the promotion of new energy vehicles models, its guidance before the price of less than 300,000 yuan, the subsidy transition period until July 22.
Tesla’s early delivery of the long-range Model 3 is clearly the hope of delivering more model3s that can benefit from new energy subsidies by July 22.
It is worth noting that even after the price reduction of the current long-lasting version of the model, its starting price is still 344.05 million yuan, to reduce to 300,000 yuan or less there is no small difficulty. This means that the Model 3 long-range model will no longer receive the new energy promotion subsidy after the end of the subsidy transition period on July 22.
