    Sounds like Tesla has a winner over in Denmark. Can someone post the differences in purchase price and operating/maintenance costs between the 3 cars mentioned in US dollars? The difference seems to make the Tesla an obvious choice if I'm reading it correctly.

    You need to know that Denmark does not have any car producers. And so there is a tax of up to 185% (not a typo) on new cars in addition to the sales tax of 25%.

    That enormous tax does not apply to electric cars until 2015, which means that the Telsa is indeed much cheaper than the BMW to buy.

    (converted sales prices in Denmark):
    without any options
    Tesla Model S 60 kw cost around 98.000 USD (incl VAT & Shipment)
    BMW 520i cost around 105.000 USD (incl VAT & shipment)
    Tesla models is the winner

    Tesla Model S performance cost around 140.000 USD (incl VAT & shipment)
    BMW M5 cost around 350.000 USD (incl VAT & shipment)
    Prices are not camparable, as you could by 2 well equiped Model S Performance instead of a (1) BMW M5 (wich is a why a M5 is very rare here in Denmark)

    The base model S is comparable with a less performance BMW, while the Model S performance is a bargian.

    The driving cost per year (30.000 km) is:
    Model S 60 or Performance is estimated 3500 USD/year
    BMW 520 is estimated 8200 USD/year
    BMW M5 is estimated to 12900 USD/year.

    All in all Tesla is a very attractive buy
    The Danes are only hessitating due to the "unknown" quallity of the Tesla, once finish and quallity have been "aproved" sales will be better.

    In Norway they even get a further 25% "discount due to no added VAT on EV's. Along with other bennefits as free entry to capital city (ICE cars pay to go into the city) - that’s why Tesla sales are very good/high in Norway, afaik large/fast ICE cars are even more expensive in norway makeing the different bigger.
