tev9999 is on a distinguished road

That is the same destination charge that was in effect at the end of the 2013 MY. The early part of the year it was $995.

The manufacturer cost of something rarely has a direct comparison to the price they charge. I picked up my ram 50 miles from the plant, yet I pay the same as someone in California. Hawaii only pays $50 more. Prices are set to maximize profit in just about every industry. I worked at one consumer electronics company where our manufacturing cost was $2.00. We sold it for $50. That is what the market was willing to pay. Just free market economics.
