In the Virtual Open House, they announced a price deduction on 450 Plus but not for 450X which in itself is such a demotivated move to own 450X on consumer’s perceptive.
Previously I had to pay 10k extra over 450 plus price to own a 450X and I had made up my mind to go for 450X with upfront payment but now with reduction in the price of 450 plus, I would have to pay 20k (approx.) more to own a 450X. The added features remain the same but somehow now I have to pay DOUBLE to get the same ? How do you want the consumer to perceive this ? To me it just comes across as a redirection of selling more 450 plus with the price drop as production has taken a hit during pandemic. And with the Co-founder saying we figured we could manufacture 450 plus in a little more lesser cost during announcing the new 450 Plus price, it makes me wonder what is the actual value of this vehicle now ? More importantly why should I pay 20k more to own a 450X ?
Sorry but since the launch I have never been fully convinced to buy 450X with so many things/factors around the pricing of the vehicle was never able to assign the value of the product to the price offered. To be honest it killed the enthusiasm of owning 450X which I had before the launch. Also not getting the collector’s edition merchandise yet didn’t help either.
Looking forward to a logical answer as it directly influences my buying decision.
