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”.
