Currently, the post prices for the two models stand at 255,652 yuan ($40,020) and 280,752 yuan ($43,950).
The automaker didn't reveal the factors leading to the newest price increase. Some industry insiders said the prices was raised to make up the difference caused by the reduction of green-car subsidies.
