Tesla’s vice president responded to the price cut by initially wanting to make price/performance better rather than profit maximizing.

For tesla owners, you never know if it’ll cut prices tomorrow. On October 1st, on National Day, Tesla offered a surprise to prospective owners: the Chinese-made Model 3 Standard Battery Upgrade was priced at 249,900 yuan (down 216,000 yuan) and the Chinese-made Model 3 long-range rear-wheel drive version was priced at 30.99 million yuan (down 34.15 million yuan).

However, this move has made many car owners who have just picked up the car heart, many people once again become “the owner of the leek car.”

In the face of discontent and even anger at car owners, Tesla’s vice president of foreign affairs, Tao Lin, continued to respond on Twitter during the National Day.

Tesla's vice president responded to the price cut by initially wanting to make price/performance better rather than profit maximizing.

Today, Tao Lin again tweeted in response to the price reduction: “Thank you for sharing. Do not seek everyone’s understanding and recognition, but hope that gradually we can believe that our initial intention is really to let consumers have better value for money products rather than their own profit maximization. “

Earlier, Tao Lin has said, understand everyone’s mood. She said that price adjustment is a highly confidential work, need to be repeated, only a very small number of people to participate, what we can do is once the final confirmation of the first time to prepare internal procedures and inform everyone as soon as possible, because any time the announcement will be a number of recent pick-up consumers affected.

Tesla has a lot of owners, and a lot of employees just mentioned their new cars in September. They apply the same price policy as the average consumer.

With the exception of a very small number of employees involved in price measurement, all colleagues are informed of price adjustments almost at the same time as consumers, so there is no case that staff intentionally conceal and mislead consumers.

According to information posted on Tao Lin Weibo, for this price adjustment, in line with the 7-day confidence protection plan of car owners to give away 3 years of free overcharge rights.

But it’s clear that Tesla owners don’t pay for it. Here are some of the owner’s comments below Tao Lin’s tweet:

People are not angry because of the price reduction, but because the whole process is opaque and suddenly reduce the price, so that many owners who could have raised the price of more favorable prices to raise the car.

Tesla itself is good, because of your operation, I particularly regret 450,000 bought beans three. There are no localized software update upgrades for poor quality control and after-sales. Neither improve quality nor service, but also crazy price cuts to cut leeks. The thing I regret most is buying a Tesla. My luckiest thing is that I didn’t buy FSD, otherwise it would have been another cut. Such a business makes me even more afraid to spend money on any more products.

There’s nothing I hope you’ll drop to 180,000 soon! Or go straight down to the free best! Our old car owner is going to break the money! This car can’t be sold in its rotten hands…

In fact, to improve the cost-effective products do not necessarily lie in the price reduction of the product itself, the profits to better serve customers to maintain brand value is also a practice, but also a potential users and old car owners have a way.

There’s no way to sell second-hand now! Just be happy to drive a Tesla! I won’t buy anything from this brand in the future.

Since you don’t want to maximize profits and be considerate of the feelings of Tesla customers, you can open eap directly for free! Why should old customers pay to cut leeks? Not to expand the market to make money and ignore old customers?

What do you think of that?
