I don't know if you noticed an interesting phenomenon. Every time we talk about Tesla, only two questions come up. But today is special, because you can say that these two main events came together!
The first thing to talk about is issue of price, which we are most concerned about, and on February 17, Tesla quietly raised price again. According to relevant data, this time Tesla Model Y features long battery life and high performance. The starting price of version has increased by 2,000 yuan, and price of Model Y version with a long battery life is 311,900 yuan. High performance version - 361,900.
This is also second price increase for Tesla this year, because already on February 10, price of rear-wheel drive version of Tesla Model Y has already increased by 2,000 yuan to 261,900 yuan, which is a continuous increase in prices in a short time. period of time Double this also means that current price of Model Y series of cars has been raised by 2,000 yuan across board.
According to official statement, price fluctuations of model are adjusted according to cost, but I wonder if you can accept this statement? In my personal opinion, although there are factors that affect this aspect, selling price has a more direct relationship with the order quantity!
At end of day, we can say that Tesla had a big price cut in January that shocked car market. The main reason for this round of Tesla price cuts is lack of orders! And price cut brought a lot of profit. After price cut, volume of orders rose sharply, especially Y model, which sold very well, so this is also main reason for quiet increase in new car prices in February.
By looking at Tesla's historical price list, we can find that buying Tesla actually uses same principle as buying shares. If you want to make a profit, you must start from lowest point. The friends who bought it can only say you're out of luck. Having said that, I believe that many friends will be concerned about whether price of Model 3 will increase. Based on current situation, if sales continue to grow, price increases are inevitable.
Coincidentally, in addition to price issues, Tesla has also had a lot of quality issues lately. I believe that for Tesla owners, recall is a common thing. As in 2022, Tesla Lara has recalled nearly 800,000 vehicles. in general and deservedly named "King of Reviews"
But a few days ago, it was also reported that Tesla notified National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it plans to recall all vehicles equipped with advanced automatic driving assistance (FSD) systems. The situation has led to an accident and there is a risk of traffic accidents. However, there is currently no relevant information about recall in China, and compared to previous recalls that were trivial, problems associated with this recall are very serious.
Since Tesla made announcement, its share price has also fallen 5.7% and its market value has fallen by $38.6 billion.
It's worth noting that Musk will release Tesla's latest long-term strategy on Tesla Investor Day - Master Plan 3, "the third chapter of secret grand plan"
According to information disclosed so far, Tesla will also take big steps in field of new energy, and automotive field that we are worried about will also release more advanced black technologies, such as a new platform, battery technology, and even cheaper rumored The Model Q, as well as fourth-generation HW 4.0 hardware, and new Model 3 models are also expected at conference, so it's worth looking forward to.
For those who want to buy a Tesla in near future, I suggest waiting a bit, especially those who want to buy a Model 3. There will be a new model coming soon, as reported. that it will also adopt a new body design and battery. Technology, as well as latest fourth-generation hardware, etc., are expected to be much stronger than current models in terms of product strength, and it is worth waiting for.
