Tesla apresenta recorde de produção

Graphic News

January 3, 2019 -- As entregas de carros elétricos da Tesla atingiram 244.920 unidades nos EUA em 2018, mais 138% que em 2017, sobretudo do Modelo 3. O que leva à anulação do crédito fiscal de $7.500 na compra de um veículo elétrico novo

The tax credit is halved to $3,750 once manufacturers reach a 200,000 delivery threshold, a point that Tesla reached in July 2018. Tesla’s chief executive Elon Musk announced a $2,000 price cut to all its vehicles in the U.S. amid concerns that sales of its $35,000 Model 3 would suffer. Analysts estimate that the Model 3 costs as much as $42,000 to build.

Alongside Tesla, General Motors is also facing the loss of the valuable tax credit as the carmaker battles political fallout triggered by its plans to close five North American factories and shed 15% of its workers -- a move that provoked President Donald Trump to declare that he was “looking at cutting all GM subsidies, including for electric cars.”

Preserving the incentive for buyers is crucial for GM as it helps make plug-ins such as the $36,000 Chevy Bolt more affordable.
