Comment

On Thursday Tesla (TSLA.us) cut its prices on its Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in the US.

The Model 3 rear-wheel drive was cut from $40,240 to $38,990 and the Model 3 long-range and performance car was lowered from $50,990 to $45,990. The Model Y long-range vehicle was priced at $48,490 from $50,490 and the Model Y performance car was set lower at $52,490.

Tesla has cut prices a few times over the course of 2023. The moves are aimed at stimulating demand after a miss in Q3 vehicle deliveries.

One concern as per analysts at Goldman Sachs, is that the cut in price will negatively impact on company margins, as average selling prices decline. Tesla introduced a more expensive version of the Model 3 in China and Europe, but not in North America.
