Musk delivered the new car keys to 10 Tesla-made Model 3 owners at the delivery ceremony, and he was excited and excited at the scene, dancing his body to the music and posing under the scene. In his speech, Musk choked several times. He expressed his gratitude to the Chinese government and consumers for their strong support for Tesla. “Without your support there would be no Tesla today. Musk said.
He also said that early Tesla owners would have paid more, but that it was because Tesla could make better electric cars and change the lives of more people.
Tesla’s many models have previously experienced several price cuts, which have caused early consumer discontent in China.
The latest price cut took place earlier this year, when it announced a price adjustment for the Chinese-made Model 3, with the base car price reduced from 355,800 yuan to 323,800 yuan (including the basic version of the assisted driving function), a price reduction of 9%. At the same time, according to national policy, the entire Model3 can enjoy the purchase tax exemption policy, as well as 24,750 yuan of new energy subsidies, After the Chinese model3 subsidy price of 299,000 yuan, fell below the 300,000 mark.
Musk says the design of the product is only the first step, and the production process is hundreds of times harder than the design, and Tesla is working on that.
‘It would be cool if China had a home-grown Tesla, ‘ he added. “China’s car design capabilities are great, and if we can design electric cars in China, it will be cool, we will do so.” Musk said.
