Mercedes-Benz Group AG cut prices on two electric car models in China by as much as $33,000, as heated competition in the world’s biggest EV market impacts sales. 

The luxury automaker said in a statement on its website late Tuesday that it was reducing prices on certain models from its EQ range, effective Wednesday, and that it would provide subsidies to customers who recently bought the cars.
