In an unexpected move, BAFA had removed “Tesla’s vehicles” from the list in the month of December 2018, as it claimed that customers will not be able place an order for the “Model S base version without extra features” and these added cost would push the entire acquisition cost over the “price limit”.
 
At that time, Tesla had refused that any “no-frills version” of the model was “not available”. However, On Thursday, 29 March 2018, the company stated that one such model was “always available below the cut-off price”.
 
On the other hand, BAFA was still reviewing applications that received previous approval for the subsidies, whereby indicating that buyers “may be asked to repay subsidies they have already received”.
 
According to Reuters:
“BAFA has received a total of 1,275 applications for subsidies of Tesla purchases, according to its website. It was not immediately clear how many of those were approved before the agency removed Tesla from its list in December”.
