Tesla Slashes Prices in China in Sales Push

Tesla announced on Wednesday that it has slashed the prices of its Model S and Model X cars in China by as much as 6.9%. This comes after concerns emerged about the EV maker’s profit margin in the Chinese market.

A post from Tesla on the social media platform Weibo showed that the price of the Model S has been lowered from 808,900 yuan to 754,900 yuan ($103,477.58); a 6.7% drop. The price of the Model X was reduced by 6.9% from 898,900 yuan to 836,900 yuan.

Vehicle sales in China for the EV maker declined by 31% in July compared to June – the first month-on-month decline that Tesla has experienced since December last year. This was the period in which Tesla lowered its production levels as it dedicated more resources to preparing for the revamped Model 3 launch.

In addition to raising its profit margin, Tesla is also looking to remain competitive against rivals such as China’s BYD, which saw its sales increase over July compared to the previous month.
