Tesla Lowers Prices On Some Model S, X In China As Import Tax Drops

DEC 14 2018 BY MARK KANE 9

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.

Missing a “d” In the first line temporarily decrease(d).
Later in the article, near the end, you say it correctly.

Surprising…looks like the trade war actually achieved something here as Chinese tariffs went back to the Trump humoring 15% rather than the almost showstopping 25% it used to be. Now China needs to give Apple the patents it robbed from them back and release the Canadian hostages and it’s almost as if you’re dealing with a country rather than organized crime.

Pot calling the kettle black. Attitude is exactly why Tesla sales are a complete and utter joke there

I don’t think Tesla’s China sales are less than what they could be because we don’t close our eyes enough for stuff like the lack of human rights, the mistreatment of minorities, the claiming of territories and seas it has no legitimate claim on, the robbing of IP and the taking of hostages to put pressure on other countries, it’s other abusive practices like high tariffs (used to be 25% now down to 15%) and the fact that only domestic products qualify for incentives.

High and mighty lecturing won’t work at all. You got MAGA – your morals are Nothing to be proud of, unless you self-recite blanket privilege honor upon thyself, like Christian missionaries. Lot of good the Catholic priests and Nassar USOC showed the world. Don’t kid yourself that Tesla and Musk are any better. Green treehugger nonsense, rich Grey Poupon.

Crap coming out all openings in your case…

Actually it went from 25% to 15% on July 1, 2018.
Then Trump raised tariffs on 200 billion worth of goods. China then raised tariffs to 40% on imported cars.
Now China is lowering tariffs again for 90 days from 40% to 15% starting on 1/1/19 for 90 days.
Hopefully Tesla ships as many Tesla’s into China before the tariffs are raised again.

What about lowering prices in the USA?

IF POTUS DONALD DUMP DON’T GET IMPEACHED FOR THE CRIMES HE HAS HAD COMMITTED AS THE THEN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE TO GET HIS FIXER LAWYER TO BREAK THE LAW TO COMMIT FELONY SO THAT HE COULD BE ELECTED BY SECRET PAYMENTS OF CAMPAIGN FUNDS TO 2 WOMEN & ONE PUBLISHER TO BUY SILENCE AND ALSO HIS COLLUSION CONSPIRACY WITH RUSSIA TO RUN DOWN THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE IN ORDER TO INFLUENCE THE ELECTION AND OTHER SERIOUS CRIMES HE HAD ALREADY COMMITTED TO BE UNFOLDED SOON. THE TRADE WAR WITH CHINA WILL CONTINUE TO INTENSIFY & ESCALATED AFTER MARCH 1ST, 2019, BECAUSE CHINA CANNOT & WILL NOT LOSE DIGNITY & FACE WITH THE EVEN MANY MORE UNPROVEN ACCUSATIONS AND UNREASONABLE & UNCEASINGLY EVEN MORE DEMANDS ADDED TO HIS LIST, AS JUST LIKE A FICKLE OLD LADY CHANGING HER MIND ALL THE TIME AFTER BOTH SIDES FIRSTLY ENDEAVOR TO AGREE TO A CERTAIN CONCESSIONS FROM EACH OTHER HAVE BEEN AGREED TO BUT LIKE IN THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR HE WOULD KILL THE DEAL IN THE LAST MINUTES TO MAKE EVEN MORE UNPROVEN ACCUSATIONS & ALSO MAKE EVEN MORE UNREASONABLE DEMANDS SURELY WASTING EVERYBODY’S TIME & EFFORTS FOR NOTHING AS PER EARLIER ENCOUNTER AND… Read more »
