    First group of reservation holders received email from Tesla titled with " Thank you for your order" yesterday, with attachment of order agreement. Obviously the pricing is also out at the same time:

    Model S 85 (basic) 750,000 YUAN (with VAT) -US$123,000
    Model S P85 (basic) 871,800 YUAN (with VAT) -US$143,000, if with all the options(may vary): 1,087,700 YUAN -US$178,300

    the email also requires customer to finish their final configuration confirmation before 2/3/2014. I assume that the first delivery might be in April!

    The timing sounds about right... thanks for the update!

    EDIT: btw, do you know if these are Signature models, or did they get rid of Signatures in China?

    What do these US$ amounts mean? They don't make sense to me.

    I hope this causes awesome positive reception in the Chinese market.

    Hopefully investors understand this logic. Practically everything Tesla does breaks the norm, and there's a reason for that.

    Not entirely surprising, given the pricing strategy in Norway. Tesla could definitely have made more money, both per car and in total, by adding 10-20k USD on top of the prices here, but instead they added a fairly modest amount to the price.

    I think the pricing strategy really reflects the long-term goals of Tesla. Tesla isn't in it for short term profits - it's all about building the market in preparation for Gen 3 and beyond. Getting cars on the road, building SC, building a sales and service organisation.

    Hmm. They didn't need to double the price, but why not add some additional profit in? No one would have blinked at an extra 5-10k thrown in for their troubles. Don't they have to modify it for the market as well?

    Either way, hope they've got their production constraints worked out...
