Side lines 02 – price

I have written about price before and that’s because the price of a Tesla in Australia compared to other vehicles, is high.

I believe one of two things. If Tesla model 3’s were manufactured in China at GF3 and sent to Australia there might be the ability for a price reduction due to a number of factors including trade agreements, cost of construction is lower, etc.

The second is the idea that Australia could be home to a Gigafactory.

Uptake of the Tesla vehicles would increase with either of these. As price could be reduced which would allow for more people like my self who could not afford a $70000 dollar car may consider a $50000 car.

Just my thoughts. What do you think?

    I completely agree. Giga Factory Australia is definitely worth giving a firm thought. Local demand may not be enough to justify it but export of vehicle to this side of the globe may be a point to consider

      Australia has an opportunity to lead the world as the only country with electric car manufacturing and no petrol car manufacturing. Would be a great first and a major step in the right direction.

Thanks for being here, leave your insights and i hope you come back again.
