Has price differential in different parts of the world. Kevscar has highlighted some. A different build specification to suit local conditions is another For example- there was a Hoo-Ha years ago about the price of a motor vehicle with LHD drive spec compared to a RHD[UK] spec - Very few observers took on board that many components were different between the two types and the assembly routines had be changed for a lower volume of units = Higher cost of manufacture. No Rip off - And the buyer has the remedy in their wallet If they don't like the price - don't buy it
if you not happy with the price then dont buy one. the manufacturers will always argue about t going concerns over their businesses, yet they will spend a lot on business meetings with tea and cakes and booze and meetings in lurid places like strip joints etc.
m sure the price will go down in time for a newer version or competitors version.
