Tesla Inc is considering pricing its China-manufactured Model 3 vehicles between 300,000 yuan and 350,000 yuan ($43,431-$50,670) before subsidies, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

Winds were so strong that residents said a vehicle was picked up by the storm, and windows were knocked out due to powerful winds. In Brookville, west of Dayton, the storm tore roofs off schools, destroyed a barn and heavily damaged houses.


Though it already sells Model 3 vehicles locally, Tesla now ships all of them from the USA, disqualifying the vehicles from Chinese government subsidies and subjecting the cars to import tariffs. An earlier round of price cuts in January of US$2,000 per vehicle came as part of an acknowledgement that the looming expiry of a US$7,500 tax credit for Tesla EVs would hurt sales, with the federal tax credit for Teslas set to be phased out by the end of this year after a reduction previously. Now all Tesla cars sold in China are made in the United States and then shipped to China, which adds logistics costs, import tariffs, and the risk of additional tariffs if the trade war further escalates.
