Tesla Inc. (TSLA.O) slashed costs for some Model Y and Model 3 vehicles in the U.S. for the sixth time this year to boost demand as electric-vehicle makers compete globally.

Tesla’s first-quarter earnings, due Wednesday after markets close, will illustrate how prior cuts have harmed its industry-leading profit margins.

Tesla has cut pricing in several areas to compete with legacy U.S. automakers like Ford Motor (F.N.) and Chinese automakers like BYD Co Ltd (002594. S.Z.) in its second-largest market.

Tesla’s morning shares dipped 2.3%. However, after falling the most in 2022, the stock is up over 50% this year.

Late Tuesday, the company’s website stated that it dropped Model Y “long range” and “performance” pricing by $3,000 apiece and Model 3 “rear-wheel drive” costs by $2,000 to $39,990.

Tesla dropped U.S. prices of its base Model 3 by 11% and its base Model Y by 20% this year as its largest market prepared to impose stiffer requirements that will limit E.V. tax credits.

It began discounting in China in January and expanded to Europe, Israel, Singapore, Japan, Australia, and South Korea.

Tesla has kept ahead of giant U.S. and Japanese automakers making gains in E.V.s by decreasing sticker prices. Still, Chinese automakers and others with even lower-cost options are starting to grab the lead in that sector.

Tesla’s first-quarter deliveries rose 4%, compared to 17.8% the quarter before.

According to 17 Visible Alpha analysts, the company’s vehicle gross margin will dip to 23.2% in the first quarter.

According to Refinitiv statistics, revenue is forecast to climb 24% to $23.3 billion, but experts’ average profit estimate has declined by 2.4% in the last three months.
