German Tesla Model S owners ordered to repay EUR4,000 subsidy on electric cars
Date: Thu, 19 Jul 2018 10:56:41 GMT
From feeds.marketwatch

German owners of the Tesla Model S have been ordered by a government agency to repay a 4,000 euros ($4,640) subsidy on electric vehicles, because the cars are too expensive to qualify for the government program. The Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control, which goes by the acronym BAFA, said it has attempted to hold talks with Tesla in recent months on the issue, but has failed to reach agreement. The subsidy is available for electric cars that cost no more than 60,000 euros, which is the list price for the basic Model S. But Tesla has been unable until now to deliver the basic model to its German clients, and more expensive trims do not qualify. About 800 customers are affected, according to a BAFA release. Customers who ordered a Model S after March 6 will receive the subsidy, after Telsa said it can deliver a basic version of the car. Tesla shares were down 0.9% Wednesday, but have gained 2.7% in 2018, while the S&P 500 has gained 5%.
