Tesla Inc. has reportedly slashed prices for its Model 3 sedan in China, and could be ready to publish record third quarter deliveries later this week.
The electric carmaker’s China website indicates that starting prices for its Model 3, which are now made in its Shanghai factory, have been lowered -8% to around $36,800 each. The longer-range version’s price was reduced to around $40,000 each.
The new models will also include cheaper lithium iron phosphate batteries, according to Reuters report.
Another report, from Electrek'news website, suggested that Tesla's third quarter deliveries could come in at a record high later this week, and a substantial part of that is its strong China sales which surpassed 11,000 last month.
According to the Street forecasts, Tesla's third quarter deliveries will rise to around 140,000 vehicles, compared to a 90,650 for the second quarter.
