I'm confused regarding the European price for Model S.
Is this ~ US$ 96000 price for the 60 kWh version including
the VAT for residents of UK?
If yes, the price without VAT is about US$ 80000, which
is a bit more than the US$ price of US$ 59900 + US$ 7500

The transport from US to Europe is not that expensive,
so the profit for Tesla is much higher for the European
market. I think about US$ 10000 more per car.
I thought the Model S should be a "mass market" car
in the price range of US$ 50000 / US$ 65000.
The higher European price and the general price increase
makes this car now a luxury car in the price range of
