China’s Price War Baffle in Business: The Buzz around #EV #NEV #Tesla and Commuter #SharedBike Races for Competitive Edge #FYP

**[Title of the Video] – Decoding the Price War in China’s New Energy Vehicle Industry**

Welcome to the ICS News Desk, where Tim Pope brings you the latest buzzword from China’s business and media landscape. In this episode, we delve deep into the price war that has shaken the new energy vehicle (NEV) industry in China. From its origins to the impact on foreign and local automakers, we uncover the reasons behind the slashed prices and how it affects consumers.

China’s NEV market is booming, with NEVs projected to comprise a third of all new car sales by 2023. This massive market has set the stage for intense competition among automakers, and Tesla seems to have taken the lead by reducing prices on their existing models. Ellen Musk, the CEO of Tesla, hinted during their first-quarter earnings call that selling more cars at a cheaper price could be advantageous for the company.

Foreign automakers like Ford, VW, Honda, and Toyota swiftly followed suit, cutting prices on their NEV models to stay competitive. Chinese producers, including BYD, Cherry Chang, and Dong Fung, didn’t lag behind and also reduced prices to keep up with the trend. The discounts range from cash rebates of a few thousand Yuan to significant markdowns on higher-end models.

One advantage Chinese companies have in this price war is their dominance in the battery market. China’s NEV battery manufacturers are the largest globally, enhancing the local supply chain and supporting domestic automakers. Some companies, like BYD, even have their own in-house battery production facilities. However, not all NEV companies can survive the slim margins of a price war, leading to consolidation through closures or acquisitions.

While this price war benefits some Chinese consumers who can now afford NEVs, it has also upset those who recently purchased vehicles only to find later that prices have significantly dropped. Tesla, although initially successful in selling more cars, struggled to make up for the price cuts in the first quarter of this year, resulting in a decline in revenue. As a consequence, Tesla has had to readjust its prices.
