The US price of a Tesla Model S with these configurations is 85,270 USD. And the 7,500 USD Federal tax credit is included. Also 990 USD for "Tesla Personal Delivery" (whatever that might be) is included. And 180 USD for "Final Inspection, Prep. and Coordination" is included.
Now if I would make exact the same configuration of the Tesla Model S here in The Netherlands, then the price will be 95,650 Euro. I consider that to be a rather big difference in price for exact the same Tesla Model S. The price for shipping a vehicle to The Netherlands is about 2,500 USD.
Now, I am wondering if it would be possible in the near future to buy a Tesla Model S from a US citizen and have it shipped to The Netherlands. In both the US and The Netherlands the steering wheel is on the left side in the vehicle. So, that will not be a problem. But will there be other problems on the way ahead?
