The Dutch price is even worse. I made a little error this morning so I had to correct the figures in my previous post.

Dutch residents are not allowed to drive around in cars with German license plates. Not even in rented cars. If you get caught, the Dutch taxes can be collected on the spot.

For a while I flew from NY to Dusseldorf and then drove to Holland in a rented car with German plates (because you can rent much more fun cars in Germany). I was stopped by the Dutch customs, and they checked me very thorough.

I'm Dutch, but I am a non-resident. That is why they let me go.

The CAN price of $274 does not include Canadian Tax's. If the car was to be registered in BC then you can add 17% to the price of the car for a total of $320,580 CAN!

Dutch, Danish an Canadian prices are insane: both Denmark (5th place) and the Netherlands (7th) have one of the biggest GDP's (per capita), but taxes on cars causes residents to predominantly buy 'reasonably priced' cars. When you compare this to for instance Germany (17th), you'll see they (on average) drive more expensive cars
