Some people say that Tesla's price is like a roller coaster, one price today and another price tomorrow, so many old car owners claim to be cut off
Recently, however, Tesla's price reduction has caused heated discussion among netizens.
According to sources,Tesla will begin selling model 3 cars made in Shanghai and equipped with lithium iron phosphate batteries to Chinese customers on Thursday.
while the price has not yet been announced, lithium iron phosphate batteries do not contain nickel and cobalt, which are the two most expensive components in conventional NMC or nickel-manganese-co batteries, which also means that the price of Model 3 may fall soon.
According to the information disclosed on the social platform, it is rumored that the current domestic Tesla Model 3 price adjustment is as follows:
1、The price of the standard extended model may be reduced from 291800 to 249000;
2. The price of the long range rear wheel drive model is likely to drop from 344100 now to 309000.
At present, the cheapest domestic model 3 is sold at 291800 yuan before subsidy.Compared with this, the starting price of the new model 3 is reduced by 42800 yuan.
It is worth noting that the information on the social platform did not mention whether the price of the 419800 performance high-performance model will be reduced.
So far, Ningde times and Tesla have declined to comment on the matter.
Previously, the domestic model 3 equipped with lithium iron phosphate battery has been declared,The comprehensive driving range of the vehicle is increased from 445km to 468km.
As Ningde times has signed a mass production supply agreement with Tesla, we expect that the lithium iron phosphate batteries used in model 3 will be provided by Ningde times.
In addition, in June this year,Ningde times has announced that the company is ready to start producing cobalt free batteries, which are about 10% cheaper than traditional NMC batteries and have a service life of up to 2 million kilometers.
Zeng Yuqun Zeng Yuqun, chief executive of Ningde Times, said:
If the news is true, cobalt free LiFePO4 battery will help improve Tesla's competitiveness in the Chinese market.
