On May 2, according to Tesla China's official website, the prices of Tesla Model 3 and Model Y have risen, and the price increase of each model is 2,000 yuan. The news has sparked constant heated discussions among people and once dominated the screen hotlist.


Since last year, Tesla has launched a price war on a global scale. In the Chinese market, at the beginning of the year, the domestically produced Tesla experienced a price cut of all series, with a maximum drop of 48,000 yuan. Among them, the prices of Model 3 and Model Y hit a record low in history. Affected by the hot sales of Model Y models, Tesla carried out a reverse price increase in February. The starting price of Model Y models was raised by 2,000 yuan to 261,900 yuan.


But this is far from over. Tesla's erratic and unpredictable pricing and operation are like a catfish, constantly disturbing the market price of new energy electric vehicles.


In terms of price, in the past four months, Tesla started a new round of price cuts around the world. On April 19, Tesla cut the prices of a number of models, including Model 3 and Model Y in the United States, ranging from 4.7% to 6%. Among them, the price of the rear-drive version of the Model 3 was lowered by US$2,000 from US$41,990 to US$39,990, marking that the lowest price of a Tesla car officially fell below US$40,000.


However, just two days later, Tesla raised the sales prices of Model S and X in the United States by $2,500 on April 21, bringing the starting prices of these two series to $87,490 and $97,490, respectively. Less than two weeks since the last price increase, Tesla-related models have once again ushered in an increase. And this big price increase not only occurs in the Chinese market, but also in the US and Japanese markets.According to data from Tesla’s official website, the price of Model 3 has risen from $39,990 to $40,240, and the price of Model Y has risen from $46,990 to $47,240 in the United States, while the price of Tesla Model 3 and Model Y have been raised by 37,000 yen (about 1,860 yuan) in the Japanese market.

    In addition to price disturbances, Tesla seems to be "rolling" in terms of charging station operations. Recently, Tesla also announced that it will officially open its charging stations for some non-Tesla brand electric vehicles in mainland China to promote the implementation of its "Charging Network Open Pilot Program".


According to reports, the first batch of pilot charging stations includes 10 super charging stations and 120 destination charging stations. Available models include 37 new energy models of 30 brands including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, BYD, Ideal, NIO, and Xpeng vehicles. In the future, they also expect to expand Tesla's charging network to a wider area.
