Tesla motors have been adopting global pricing. In the United States, Tesla is at the same price level with BMW 7-series and Mercedes S-class; after entering Chinese market, Tesla has obviously lowered its pricing. As early as 2006, Tesla CEO Elon Musk expressed the concept of the “three-step” strategy, namely: Step 1:launching the low-yield and expensive two-seat sports car Roadster in 2008; providing technical and productive support for model X and model S through the cash flow generated by Roadster; Step 2:the investment of the cash flow acquired from model S and model X; Step 3: the production of model3.It is estimated that the price of model3 will be $35,000 in the United States, and in consideration of the tariffs and exchange rate factors, the price in China will be about 300-400 thousand Yuan.
