    Default Importing Tesla (an electric car)

    I've been wondering why anyone has not imported a Tesla Model S, yet. Though they've got the cars like Limboghrini or Ferreri.

    It's all electric, could it be imported? Tax duty, etc.?

    I'd like to import one from the UK but I'm not sure how to do so. Currently I own a 2010 Prado. Which I bought from a local dealer in 2011.

    Is it possible? Estimated price?

    Well, maybe you could be the first one to import and we might be able to see First Tesla. Tesla are highly technological cars which needs after sales support, over the air firmware upgrade. Tesla starts at 75K in US and goes as high as 10K for Model S.

    They will be assessed by the appraising staff at the Dry Port your car lands and the amount of ''special'' paperwork needed from Commerce Ministry and FBR would massive else customs wont clear. Honestly, trust me its not worth the hassle until FBR comes with a duty structure for pure electric vehicles.

    Get n touch with a custom's clearing agent. I can recommend you one as he is my cousin and an educated fellow, unlike the majority out there.

    One more reason for not seeing Tesla cars here is the expensive and unreliable electric supply. You need may 6-7 hours of uninterrupted electricity to recharge a car and also a high quality step down transformer as I am sure Tesla needs 110 VAC to recharge. But despite all these issues if you really need to stand out above the crowd then by all means import one. Would be nice to see one here

    You don't need a clearing agent this is a slightly complicated import. You will need the right permissions from Commerce Ministry and FBR.
    If you really end deciding to import drop me a line I ll help you out at the Customs end. My elder brother and father are both in department. I usually import my own cars its cheaper.

    It will be a value appraisal and the principal appraisal will be responsible for the duty structure since no rules exist for this class.
