Netherlands and Germany - huge price difference

Comparing the prices of Model Y today - Netherlands 66995 EUR, Germany 57970 EUR. Part of the 9025 EUR difference is accounted via:
- 2372 EUR due to VAT 21% vs 19%
- 25 EUR Recyclingsbijdrage - only in Netherlands
- 2500 EUR Einschl. 2.500 € Umweltbonus (netto) - only in Germany
- BPM for electric cars is 0% to my knowledge
- Import tax between EU countries is 0% to my knowledge

4103 EUR difference remain unexplained. Does anybody know?
- do cars in the Netherlands get more features in the base configuration?
- are there other fees/taxes due when you register a 'foreign delivered' vehicle?
- something else?

No explanation found at Tesla Model 3 from Norway to Netherlands and buying tesla in Germany to be used in Netherlands. has anyone tried?

Isn't the umweltbonus higher?


Could be, but I'm calculating with what is shown on Tesla Germany website - see bottom of the second screenshot: "Einschl. 2.500 € Umweltbonus (netto)"

That seems to also match the "Herstelleranteil" from the ADAC.de link:

Long shot but :
I know in the past (2021) they dropped prices for the 3 up to 3500 euro’s. (Also inf FR but never in BE or NL)
Maybe to keep price parity for the local market when they introduced the Y?

(FYI: NL has the same price as BE and even less estimated fuel saving 😠)
 
I would guess it is the Umweltbonus including both the part of the manufacturer and the government. According to your table, the maximum price before the bonus is 65.000. If you substract 7.500 euro, you end up with almost the exact price of the car. If the customer would be able to claim an additional subsidy, Tesla would make sure it is mentioned on is website.

But look on the bright side, you will have 5.000 euro additional fuel savings in the Netherlands versus Germany 😀

Nope, search the forum. Done it before. Tesla just has different pricing per country.........
Searching I found only the two links in my initial message here.

On the bottom of the screenshots is shown the Umweltbonus Herstelleranteil - even after adding that there is still a mismatch. Do you think Tesla prices include also the Bundesanteil Umweltbonus, but don't show it?
 
Hey do you have any update on this? I live in the Netherlands too and noticed that the price for a MYP in Netherlands and Germany was about 5000 euro difference. I wonder if there is any problem with me just ordering and picking it up in Germany, as this is the listed base price. And when I go to register it and pay taxes, pay Netherlands VAT. Any help would be appreciated, I'm considering ordering soon.

In Germany government incentives are included in the price. You need to be registered in Germany to be able to receive these.
