Cars | Electric car prices driven up by Raw Materials

Large  Small Date:2022-03-08  From:ICC
Electric car prices driven up by raw materials. According to incomplete statistics, as of March this year, more than 20 car companies have announced price increases, involving dozens of models, covering the mainstream car purchase range below 100,000 yuan and above 300,000 yuan, and the price increase range is concentrated between 3,000 yuan and 10,000 yuan.


 
 
Raw materials have risen all the way, and another wave of new energy vehicles has collectively raised prices.
 
On March 4, GAC Aion announced that AION will adjust the official guide prices of its AION Y, AION S Plus, AION V Plus and other related models. This round of price adjustments will take effect on March 4. This round of adjustment ranges from 4,000-10,000 yuan per unit, and customers who have signed contracts will not be affected.
 
WM Motor, a new force in car manufacturing, followed closely. Since March 1, WM Motor announced that it will gradually adjust the production schedule and model prices of some models. Among them, the prices of all EX5-Z series have been raised, ranging from 3,000-4,000 yuan.
 
The ORA brand also disclosed the price increase news on its official APP. Starting from March 1, 2022, the ORA Cat will begin to accept orders. After the price adjustment of the GT version, the price will start from 147,000 yuan, which is an increase of 10,000 yuan over the previous version priced at 12,000 yuan.

 
In addition, the price of the 2022 ORA cat, which was opened for pre-order on March 1, has also increased, with a price range of 121,900-151,900 yuan, compared with the old model (priced at 103,900-143,900) across the board. The price has increased from 8,000 yuan to 18,000 yuan.
 
The wave of new energy vehicle price hikes has already struck. According to incomplete statistics, as of March this year, more 20 companies including Tesla, BYD, SAIC Roewe, Xiaopeng, AION, Volkswagen, Zeekr Automobile, Geometry, SAIC-GM-Wuling, Geometry, Feifan and ORA, have announced price increases, involving dozens of models, covering the mainstream car purchase price range of 50,000~300,000 yuan, and the price increase range is concentrated between 3,000 yuan and 10,000 yuan.
 
The factors behind the final breaking-down of the price of terminal new energy vehicles are: 
First, the subsidy is reduced by 30%, e.g. the electric cars with 400km cruising range or above that meet the standard is reduced by 5,400 yuan; 
 
Second, the prices of raw materials remain high, which have driven up the prices of power batteries and transited to downstream, and thus OEMs have to transmit the cost pressure to the end market.
 
Dong Yudong, CEO of ORA brand, admitted that although the ORA brand has advantages in the industrial chain, this car still brought huge losses to the company. Taking Black Cat as an example, after the price of raw materials rises sharply in 2022, Black Cat will lose more than 10,000 yuan per vehicle.
 
That’s black cats and white cats have previously stopped taking orders.
 
Based on this, the industry is generally worried that if this round of model price hikes caused by raw material price hikes continues to ferment, the terminal acceptance will be affected, and correspondingly affect the sales target of new energy vehicles in 2022.
