Interestingly, the Tesla Model S costs a whopping $67,699 more when purchased in Israel than it does in the US. This information comes from recent research provided by The publication compared five luxury vehicles based on their pricing in 30 different markets across the globe. Two of the five vehicles were electric. 

While the Tesla Model S starts at $79,990 in the US (the price is $89,990 now), its average global price based on the 30 markets comes in at $108,196, which still makes its price in Israel notably high. The next most expensive place to buy a Model S is Denmark, where it starts at over $132,000. That's still more expensive than buying the range-topping Model S Plaid on our shores.

According to the research, the list of the 10 most expensive countries to buy a Model S is as follows. It's a bit surprising that the UK lands near the top of the list along with Sweden in the middle.

  1. Israel $147,689
  2. Denmark $132,374
  3. Hungary $120,441
  4. United Kingdom $116,896
  5. Sweden $115,216
  6. Czech Republic $115,079
  7. New Zealand $114,416
  8. Australia $112,292
  9. Ireland $111,124
  10. Portugal $108,734

It comes as no surprise the Model S is the cheapest in the US since Tesla is a US automaker, and it produces the Model S in the States. The newly refreshed long-range high-performance electric car actually costs almost $20,000 less in the US than the global average. Moreover, you can get a Model S in the US for about $60,000 less than it will cost you in Israel.
