China: NCM-Powered Tesla Model 3/Model Y Prices Go Up

Tesla has increased prices of some of its electric cars not only in the US. In China, both the prices and estimated delivery times recently went up (first time since December 31, 2021).

Interestingly, Tesla increased prices only of the Model 3/Model Y versions equipped with LG Energy Solution’s NCM batteries, while the prices of the CATL LFP-powered entry-level versions remain unchanged.

The price increase is 10,000 CNY ($1,577), which is about 2.5-3%:

  • MIC Tesla Model 3 Performance, Long Range AWD: 349,900 CNY ($55,191)
  • MIC Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD: 357,900 CNY ($56,452)
  • MIC Tesla Model Y Performance: 397,900 CNY ($62,762)

It means that the LFP-powered cars are now a bit more competitive:

  • MIC Tesla Model 3 RWD (LFP): no change
    *265,652 CNY ($41,902): 276,740 CNY ($43,651) minus 11,088 CNY ($1,748) subsidy
  • MIC Tesla Model Y RWD: no change
    301,840 CNY ($47,610)

CnEVPost noted also that before applying higher prices, estimated delivery times were extended on March 4 by a few weeks to 16-20 weeks (Model 3) and 10-20 weeks (Model Y).

It does not surprise us as demand has already been pretty high and potential new supply constraints might add on top of that.

In February Tesla sold in China over 23,000 cars (up 27% year-over-year), while exports exceeded 33,000.
