Munro & Associates: Tesla Model 3 teardown points to strong gross margin

Tesla Model 3 установила сразу два рекорда

It's one thing not to qualify for a product rebate, bonus, or credit.

The Federal office for economy and export control of Germany (BAFA) has asked the buyers of Tesla Model S to return to a tax deduction in the amount of four thousand euros.

Germany subsidizes electric vehicles that cost no more than 60,000 euros.

Tesla in response to prosecution claims that the cars basic value of 60 thousand euros was offered not only to buy, but shipped to customers. Another 250 Tesla owners that bought the Model S won't receive the payment, the office said.

The auto maker said it was appealing against the decision and would pay the bonus to its clients in place of the German state until the issue was resolved.

German customers have always been able to order a base version Model S which met the qualification threshold, and such cars were delivered to customers, Tesla said. It also added that "all Tesla customers who purchased the Tesla Model S before March 6, 2018" will have to pay back the €4,000 incentive.

The sub-60,000 Model S sold after March 6 was a lower-specification model that lacked some features such as navigation and memory seats that were listed as standard equipment before. Those who support the credits say they help support the development of new technology and offset higher prices for consumers who want to do right by the environment, even if the most successful products are expensive.

Tesla, whose shares were up 1.7 per ncent at United States dollars 315.42 in Tuesday morning trading on the Nasdaq, is pushing to increase production of the Model 3, which starts at USD 35,000 and is key to the electric carmaker's profitability.
