Tesla cuts Model 3 prices once again as US government phases out tax credits

Proactive Investors Wednesday, 6 February 2019
Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) has cut the price of its Model 3 for the second time this year as it looks to prop up demand for its first mass-market electric car. US authorities have been phasing out a tax credit for Tesla cars since the beginning of January, effectively raising the purchase price of its cars by US$3,750. READ: Tesla turns a profit for second quarter in a row The electric carmaker initially responded by trimming its prices by US$2,000, but it said on Wednesday that it had shaved off another US$1,100. Even with the latest cuts, the cheapest Model 3 will still set customers back US$42,900 and Tesla has been ramping up production and cutting costs as it looks to get the starting price below the US$35,000 target Elon Musk had originally promised. It said it was able to fund the most recent price cuts by ending a costly referral programme which gave new buyers six months of free charging and prizes for existing owners. Musk recently posted on Twitter, saying that his company, which is worth US$55bn, is “doing everything [it] can” to lower prices. Last month, Tesla posted only its fourth-ever profitable quarter despite delivering slightly fewer Model 3s than Wall Street analysts had been expecting. The California-based company’s stock was down 0.7% to US$321.35 in pre-market trading in New York on Wednesday.
