Tesla has once again cut prices in an effort to boost demand for its electric vehicles, according to Bloomberg.

The Model S sedan now starts at $84,990, a $5,000 cut from last month's price. 

The Model X starts at $94,990, also a $5,000 drop.

The automaker delivered 422,875 vehicles globally in the first quarter.

The S and X models made up just 10,695 of those deliveries.

Other Teslas, such as the Model 3 sedans and Model Y sports utility vehicles saw their prices trimmed by $1,000 and $2,000, respectively, bringing those starting prices to $41,990 and $49,900, according to its website. 

Tesla did a round of price cuts in the U.S. in January, reducing prices by 20% as a way to likely allow some buyers to qualify for a $7,500 U.S. government tax credit.

A 14% cut brought the price of a high-performance version of its Model 3 sedan to $53,990, also putting it under the cap.
