Model 3 Tesla adjusts Model 3 prices amid lowered $3,750 federal tax credit
But it also said it would cut prices of its three models by $2,000 to help customers handle the gradual phase-out of federal electric vehicle tax credits. The move, created to partially offset a reduction in the federal tax credit for its electric vehicles, underscored the key challenge in what is likely to be a pivotal year for the company and its chief executive officer. Come 2020, the tax credit disappears entirely (although no one will care since two-thirds of the world's wild animals are on track to disappear by 2020, too).
Its shares fell by about 8% at the start of U.S. trading.
The price cut of $2,000 beginning on Wednesday on the Model 3 - as well as on its higher-priced Model S and Model X - took the market by surprise and weighed on the stock, pushing it down 9.4 percent in morning trading.
Tesla has released its production and delivery figures for the fourth quarter of 2018, capping off what could only be described as a historic year for the electric auto maker.
Tesla disappointed investors Wednesday after announcing that it delivered 90,700 vehicles during the fourth quarter, more than 2,000 vehicles short of what Wall Street analysts expected.
Tesla shares fell 9 percent on Wednesday after the electric auto maker delivered fewer-than-expected Model 3 sedans in the fourth quarter and cut prices for all its vehicles in the United States to offset a reduction in a green tax credit.
FactSet, which compiled an average estimate from nine analysts, projected that Tesla would deliver 2000 more vehicles than it did, including 1750 more Model 3 vehicles.
Musk has been under intense pressure to deliver on his promise of stabilizing production for the Model 3, which is seen crucial for easing a cash crunch and achieving long-term profitability. That was cut in half, to $3,750, starting January 1. Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives told CNBC that Tesla's failure to meet Wall Street projection was something that his firm had been prepared for: "It was a move that was within the realm of possibility, but it caught investors off guard", he said. The company said it would begin delivering Model 3s to Europe and China in February. "We continue to believe Model 3 demand remains strong, particularly as the company has not begun worldwide shipments or introduced leasing options, and are buyers on any weakness", Kallo wrote.
