Price Of Tesla Cuts Globally In A Bid To Spur Demand



As demand slows against the backdrop of a weakening economy, TESLA Inc. has slashed the prices of its electric vehicles in the United States and Europe, doubling down on a discount campaign it started in Asia.

Due to supply chain constraints and a demand slowdown caused by growing fears of a recession, the Elon Musk-led company missed its goal of increasing deliveries by 50% annually in 2022. Despite this, Musk has stated that the automaker could produce 2 million vehicles by 2023 as a result of price cuts that increase demand.

China-made Tesla vehicle deals rose 18% in January from a five-month low hit in December. The rise in February was 12.6%.

The price reductions are as follows:


Tesla cut costs for all variants of its Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in China by somewhere in the range of 6.0% and 13.5% in January, as per Reuters estimations.

However, in February, the company increased the prices of its Model Y midsize sport utility vehicles (SUVs) in China for the performance and long-range models.

The two Model Y versions in China saw their starting price of Tesla rise by 2,000 yuan, or $44,983.20, to 311,900 yuan and 361,900 yuan, respectively, during the second such price increase.

The long-range Model Y is 13% cheaper than before the price reductions, while the performance Model Y is still cheaper by 9%.


For the first time since 2021, Tesla reduced the price of its Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in Japan by approximately 10% each. The Model 3 with rear-wheel drive is now priced at 5.369 million yen, or 39,501.18 dollars, down from 5.964 million yen.


According to a local Tesla sales representative, South Korea’s price cuts for Tesla ranged from approximately 6 million won to 10 million won, or $7,702.74, depending on the model.

On Friday, the basic rear-wheel drive Tesla Model 3 cost 64.34 million won ($50,637), according to the company’s website. 84.999 million won was spent on its Model Y Long Range sport utility vehicle.

According to calculations conducted by Reuters, Tesla’s U.S. price cuts on its global top-sellers, the Model 3 sedan and the Model Y crossover SUV, ranged from 6% to 20%.

The Model Y’s price went up at least three more times after that. Despite this, the Model Y is approximately 16% less expensive for customers in the United States than it was at the beginning of January.

In the United States, the company also reduced the prices of its luxury crossover SUV, the Model X, by 9% and its sedan, the Model S, by 4%.


Depending on the configuration, Tesla reduced the prices of the Model 3 and Model Y by about 1% to almost 17%.
