Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, made a special stop in Oslo Norway on March 6th to make a couple of announcements to customers and EV enthusiasts at the Tesla Oslo store.
Most importantly, Mr. Musk told the packed audience that the first European Supercharger stations will be opened in Norway, and he assured the crowd that the stations will be free to Model S customers as they are in the United States (with compatible battery packs). Of course, this announcement was received with generous applause. Secondly, Mr. Musk said that the company expects to ship the first European Model S orders to Norway customers in July. He urged those that wanted a Model S in July to get their orders processed, because the company would start producing those vehicles in June. There is a recorded video of the event on the Tesla Motors Club website.
Tesla has been following through with its plans to open up more stores in Europe. The company issued a press release on March 5th that stated: “New retail stores are planned to open this year throughout Europe, including locations in Brussels, Frankfurt, London and Amsterdam, with more stores to come in 2014. To prepare for the arrival of Model S, Tesla will also focus on opening more service centers to ensure outstanding customer support. Service centers planned for this year include Geneva, Frankfurt, Brussels, Hamburg and Vienna.”
On March 7th, Tesla issued another press release stating that Amsterdam will have a service center as well. The company pointed out that The Netherlands ranks high on its European bookings, so this additional service center should be interpreted positively.
