It's one thing not to qualify for a product rebate, bonus, or credit.
The Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) in Germany is asking Tesla Motors Model S buyers who purchased their vehicles before March 2018 to pay back the €4,000 electric vehicle (EV) incentive which they had received from the government. Another 250 owners who purchased a Model S won't receive payment from the government, according to the report.
Tesla says buyers in Germany have always been able to order a sub-60,000 euro Model S, but it was only able to demonstrate to the government that it had sold a Model S for that price after March 6, according to Bloomberg. In reporting its final report on the Model 3 teardown, the firm has said that car's cost analysis points toward a "highly profitable" vehicle. Tesla, in turn, intends to appeal the decision in court, and the expenses of their clients.
Tesla said it will cover the cost of the withdrawn bonus for the Model S, shown. The government deal is worth 4,000 euros, with half of that paid to consumers by the automaker.

German police: Several injured in attack; suspect arrested
At least fourteen people have been injured in an attack on a busy bus, in a northern city in Germany , local media reports. Authorities have not yet confirmed the suspect's motive, but prosecutors said they had not ruled out terrorism.
To ensure that Model S becomes eligible for the incentives, Tesla unbundled a few standard features of the vehicle as an option, to bring down the base price of the Model S to €60,000.
Opponents say that applying the credits to expensive luxury cars amounts to a subsidy for those who could afford to pay the higher prices without government help.
