US electric vehicle (EV) maker Tesla Inc on April 12, said it has started taking orders in China for a lower-priced version of its Model 3 car, as it seeks to expand its lineup and boost sales in the world’s biggest EV market.

The California-based firm said in a statement that Chinese customers can now order a standard range Model 3 variant whose starting price of 377,000 yuan (USD 56,167) will make it the cheapest version of the car in China.

 

The model will be equipped with Tesla’s Autopilot assisted driving function, the automaker said.

Tesla has been adjusting prices of its US-made cars in China to remain affordable in the country, a move also aimed at fending off competition from a swathe of domestic EV start-ups such as Nio Inc, Byton and XPeng Motors.

Previously, the starting price for a Model 3 in China was 407,000 yuan for a rear-wheel-drive long-range version with no Autopilot.

Tesla currently imports all the cars it sells in China. It is building a factory in Shanghai that will initially manufacture Model 3 cars.
