Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) raised the prices of both of its more expensive models by about 2 percent in China, following a price hike three days ago for two less expensive locally produced models.

Prices for the new Model S and the entire Model X lineup were raised by RMB 19,000 ($2,750) in China, the latest information from Tesla's China website shows.

The latest starting price for the dual-motor all-wheel drive Model S in China is RMB 808,900, up RMB 19,000, or 2.41 percent, from RMB 789,900 previously, information monitored by CnEVPost shows.

The latest starting price for the tri-motor all-wheel drive Model S Plaid is RMB 1,028,900, up RMB 19,000, or 1.88 percent, from RMB 1,009,900 previously.

The latest starting price for the dual-motor all-wheel drive Model X is RMB 898,900, up RMB 19,000, or 2.16 percent, from RMB 879,900.

The new starting price for the tri-motor, all-wheel drive Model X Plaid is RMB 1,058,900, up RMB 19,000, or 1.83 percent, from RMB 1,039,900.

The expected delivery dates in China for both the new Model S and the full line of Model X models are the second quarter, the same as before, information on Tesla's China website shows.

On May 2, Tesla just raised the prices of its full lineup of Model 3 and Model Y in China, a less than 1 percent increase that means the move is more aimed at dispelling consumer wait-and-see sentiment.

Tesla has a factory in Shanghai that makes the Model 3 and Model Y, and their prices in China were all raised by 2,000 yuan at the time.

The Model S and Model X are not produced in China, and deliveries of the latest versions of these two Tesla models began in China in late March.

The company currently offers two versions of the Model 3 in China -- the rear-wheel-drive Model 3 and the dual-motor all-wheel-drive Model 3 Performance -- and three versions of the Model Y -- the entry version Model Y, Model Y Long Range, and Model Y Performance.

The two versions of the Model 3 currently start at RMB 231,900 and RMB 331,900 respectively, while the three versions of the Model Y start at RMB 263,900, RMB 313,900 and RMB 363,900 respectively.

Last month, Tesla lowered the prices of the Model 3 and the Model Y in several markets around the world, raising concerns about whether it would lower prices in China.

Tesla's move to raise the prices of all available models in China this week could help dispel some potential consumers' wait-and-see sentiment, which could benefit sales in the near term.

The electric vehicle maker delivered 76,663 vehicles in China in March and exported 12,206 from its Shanghai plant, according to the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA). April figures are expected to be available within days.
