For example, Tesla priced its Model S in China at 734,000 yuan or $121,000, adding only the import duties, transportation charges and other unavoidable expenses to its U.S. price. In contrast, other luxury automakers sell their cars in China at double or triple the price of those same cars in the U.S. Elon Musk said that he may lose some profits by not pricing the Model S like other automakers, but he would treat Chinese consumers just like he treats the company’s U.S. customers.
