The price adjustment models include C11 650, C11 580, C01 606, C01 717 and C01 630, all of which are C11 pure electric and C01 high-end versions.

As a second-tier new power brand, Zero delivered a total of 44502 new cars in the first half of the year, down 14.41 per cent from the same period last year. Zhu Jiangming, founder and chairman of Zero Motor, once said: "if Zero's sales don't go up in 2023, there will be no hope behind it."

Since 2023, "price war" has been the key word of the automobile industry. Since the beginning of the year, the automobile market has set off an unprecedented "price war", and it has become more and more intense. In January, the prices of Tesla's two domestic cars were cut to an all-time low, followed by a number of new energy car companies. In March this year, Hubei Province launched the strongest car purchase subsidy policy in history, and the "price war" further spread to the field of fuel vehicles, among which the maximum subsidy of 90,000 yuan for Dongfeng Citroen C6 has become a hot topic in the industry. In April, a number of domestic new energy vehicles have also begun to have "subsidies" activities, and the way of price reduction is different from the ambiguous rate of reduction and promotion model of the fuel vehicle price war in March.

According to incomplete statistics, at present, more than 40 car brands and hundreds of models in China participate in the price war by means of factory subsidies or price cuts by dealers, with a discount range of 30, 000-100000 yuan. So, can "price reduction make a profit" boost the sales growth of car companies? There's a good chance! However, "auto industry concern" and "price reduction" may enable car companies to achieve sales growth in a short period of time, but they cannot become the magic weapon of long-term sales target growth. According to the China Automobile Association, domestic car sales totaled 13.239 million in the first half of this year, up 9.8 per cent from a year earlier.
