Because the future is uncertain, customers are expected to rush to stores.

The temporarily decrease of the import tariff for cars from the U.S. (from 40% to 15%) led Tesla to lower prices of some Model S and Model X cars in China.

Prices decreased by up to 105,000 yuan (around $15,200) in the case of the Model S and up to 65,000 yuan (around $9,400) in the case of the Model X. Hopefully, it will translate into a higher sales result in December and early 2019. The long-term results are dependent on whether the 15% tariff will be maintained.

The price cuts don't include top of the line models P100D.
