Informing Reuters, a sales representative from Beijing said that Tesla will also bring down prices nearly by 6% for its “Model S and Model X cars”. On Tuesday, May 22, 2018, China announced about reducing “import tariffs” on automobile in a range of 15 to 25%. Although, the change in tariff rates will be effective from July 1 onwards, Tesla has informed on Tuesday that any sale proceeds of its cars in China, even before July 1, will be subjected to the “adjusted prices”.
 
A “top-of-the range Model X” of Tesla will be adjusted to the rate of “1.3 million yuan” remaining “well above the $140,000 cash price-tag” which the savings are being made for the U.S.’s “priciest version” of “Tesla’s Model X P100D”. Tesla’s move mostly “foreshadows wider price cuts” for imported car market in China, while foreign firms are attempting to narrow down the price difference with China’s domestic rivals.

Likewise, the prices of the cars in affordable range will gradually be impact whereby including even the “local Chinese brands”. In Zhang’s words:
“With imminent price adjustments in the higher-end segment, that will over time lead to a pricing adjustment for the entire market”.
