“Tesla adheres to the principle of openness and transparency in prices, and will continue to bring you better products and experiences,” said Tesla China.
Tesla estimated delivery dates have improved recently in China, and in North America. The company also has numerous new 2023 Model 3 and Model Y vehicles available for immediate purchase in existing inventory. Once Giga Texas and Giga Berlin ramp up production, there may be a chance for a price drop like we’re seeing from Giga Shanghai. But Tesla continues to deal with inflation and supply chain headwinds, like the rest of the auto industry, but Elon Musk’s company has adapted much better.
