The reasons for these price differences are quickly explained. Neighbouring countries imposed high luxury taxes on new vehicles, but only apply there, car buyers. Nevertheless at attractive and affordable prices to use off the vehicles, the automakers place low net selling prices for the vehicles. Thus, no significant difference in the gross price for new cars sold in Germany results in effect at first glance. The decisive advantage for buyers from abroad is now but that he has to pay only the low net selling price and the VAT payable in the country of imports for the EU new car a not insignificant savings. The luxury tax is not due so when importing. In the EU new cars purchased abroad hardly differs from a vehicle that is purchased in this country.
