The iX3 would be competing directly in size with the Tesla Model Y & NIO ES6, which both have to start prices substantially less than the iX3 before this cut, said Tu Le, the founder of advisory firm Sino Auto Insights in Beijing. Concludes by denying iX3 to compete.

According to Chinese media reports, the price drop consists of Tesla’s 30% cut to model at the beginning of the year to 339,900 yuan, down from 488,000 yuan.
