Yep, there is a big difference for sure. But every cost they can pull out increases margin, along with every item they can move to the options list. I can't speak for other markets, but NZ cars come with a significant amount of extra standard options which you can't buy the car without. Don't get me wrong, we're still ripped off in NZ, but you can't compare the base RRP prices of these cars between NZ/US at all.
