BYD follows cost leadership pricing strategy. Subsidies granted by Chinese government for local EV producers play an instrumental role for BYD in gaining cost advantage in the global marketplace. BYD is also exploring dynamic pricing models that adjust prices based on real-time factors like demand, inventory levels, and competitor pricing. This allows them to optimize profitability and cater to specific market conditions. Moreover, while maintaining their core value proposition associated with cost leadership, the EV behemoth is also venturing into the premium EV segment with models like the Han EV. This allows them to cater to a wider range of customer preferences and potentially higher profit margins.
