Norwegian deliveries

I reserved my P85 #2145 on 27. December. Yesterday I decided to sign up for the Signature wait list. The Signatures are all gone of course but I thought that maybe enough defers to open for a chance. The eternal optimist. Of course, TM UK office confirmed the wait list is long, but that I am on it.
Curious about when they expect deliveries will start in Norway, especially now that production is cranked up. I was told for now they plan 12 months from my reservation date. That means maybe for Christmas. Bummer!

Anyone else with info about Europe arrivals?

@Julius,North Norway

thats how it works

We also have 3x230V in Norway.
So you can have:
3-phase: P=U*I*1,732
230V*16A*1,732 = 6,3kw
230V*32A*1,732 = 12,7kw

nice try, but how to compute the impact of HPWC on 240V?
does it mean 2 X 7,4Kw? i.E. full charge in 11h?
does HPWC work on 400V?

We simply do not know yet how the european HPWC will work. It will certainly be a different unit than the US version. Tesla might also just outsource it and slap their label on someone else's EVSE.

I am quite certain it will support 3x32A 400V (22kW) and also 3x16A 400V (11kW). What is uncertain is if it will support 3x32A 230V (12.7kW, IT distribution grid used in Norway & Albania only).

Great input and it starts to get clearer. However - it should not be for us to figure out what is the best set-up. The cars start to arrive in July. The cars needs to get charged. I have sent an email to TM Norway to give me a clear description for a two alternative set-ups: one for 6 hours full charge and one for 9 hours. With that in hand I will talk to my electrician and ask him to install according to my need.
I find it a bet strange that TM Norway has not already thought of this and have it all described on the website.

I park in a garage in the basement of an apartment building and luckily the main room for all the el-meters is only 10m from my parking place. The main intake is 400V. So I will have have an electician install a 3x32A (400V) line directly from my main board and have a Mennekes plug

I recieved this email from Tesla last month"


Yes, correct, a Mennekes plug would be perfect. This is also the plug we will be using on the car itself.

I haven’t received final confirmation on a Tesla High Power Wall Connector, so I cannot confirm whether it will be available or not. There are also third party wall connectors that you can use instead if you prefer. These usually contain an additional fuse box, the plug and sometimes other tools to monitor your energy consumption.
What you can do right now before you make a final decision and before we can provide with all the information there is to know about home installations, is to install the 32A, 400V circuit and a Mennekes plug. If you require a Wall Connector later, you can always have it installed instead of the plug.

I hope this helps? Best regards, Helene Hendus

Our car is in production now.

A quick summary of the reply TM gave me concerning charging:

1. Everything is not clarified yet, however the website will be updated soon with advise on what to do at home.

2. 32A 230V or 400V one-phase and 16A 230V or 400v 3-phase is very good. To benefit from 32A 3-phase you need the High Power Wall Conector. A 16A 3-phase should be good enough. TM will adapt so it shall be easy to charge the car practically everywhere.

So - let's await the final, to be published soon.

#2676 is in production now - big smile - BIG SMILE :-))

Updated info:

Levering: De aller første Tesla Model S (signature) ankommer Norge i løpet av juli. Disse planlegges levert i august. Det er foreløpig INGEN som har fått bekreftet dato eller uke. Det eneste vi vet er at bilene kommer ihht tidsplanen som er kommunisert og de første bilene som kommer er signaturbilene. Det er mange rykter om at biler skal komme i mai, i juni osv. Dette medfører ikke riktighet. Det kommer en båt til Norge i juli, Norge blir således det første markedet i Europa som får sine biler

@ ThomasBN

That confirms what was said during EM and GB visit earlier this winter: signatures to arrive in July/August and the rest of the bunch to get theirs in September/October...

...mine is still expected in July / August, but since I have waited three years (far longer than most Signature-buyers) I guess that´s only fair! ;) I´m #220 by the way.

Hipp Hipp Hurra!

Anyone get a test drive in Norway yet? Heard the service center in Trondheim opened a week ago! Hurra!

Many got test drives in Oslo already before Christmas last year.



So, I've now had my P85 here in the Philadelphia area since mid-December, have driven it in all different weather, have almost 6000 miles on it and took it to the drag strip a couple weeks ago. All I can say is that I love this car more every day! I'm sure all my Norsk friends will find the long wait worthwhile. I can't wait to start seeing pics from Norway... people driving from Oslo to Tromso! Just be sure to account for some range loss from cold weather (20%?), use low rolling resistance tires, and watch out for your police! It's verrry hard not to go fast in this great car! So smooth and quiet! I find it is as smooth at 110mph as at 60. Nydelig!!!

@"Julius,North Norway" and @"Paracord" and any others in production.. off topic a tad, but did you order park distance sensors? (I'm curious if they are in production now). How about the lighting package?

thanks guys and congratulations!

@ unclegeek
Yes, I did order park distanse sensors and lighting package.
It is in my paper also, so I think they deliver my car as I order it.

"Bump" is a term we use to describe the process of moving a post to the top of the date-updated sorting sequence. So it is a default quick posting to "bump" the thread to page 1.

@Brian H
Ååh! and I was looking for speed bumps!
Thanks Brian H
(I realy did not know what "Bump" stand for)

@ Brian H ;-)

@ unclegeek - Yes, got the parking sensors in, the winter package as well, but did go for the extra comfy lights. So, full P85+ coming except the lighting and the 3 row seats. Counting days......

@ John56 You bet. This forum will be flooded with exciting tales once TM decide to ship cars. An eager crowd is waiting! And an eager crowd will tell how we shall not be Brodered, that cold is relative and that planning and sensibility is a key to a "positive owner experience" :-)

I so sorry! But when I not at work I will drive my Tesla or sleep. Writhing and reading at this forum will not be priority.
I will not be all gone, but I have more joy driving then reading others journeys whit they Teslas.
I am a ass!

Can't you spare a few minutes while Supercharging mid-trip to post from inside the car? ;(

@Brian H
Did not think of that.
But superchargers we up in North of Norway only can dream of having.

Well, supplementary charging at 40 amps or so somewhere mid-trip would allow you even more time!

@Brian H
The best we can find today is 230V-1P 16A. But they are free, no cost. Now I am speaking about Nordland, Troms and Finnmark, that is North of Norway. The "main road" in Norway, E6 that goes from south to north, does have over 60% in those "states". Not even charging point, that we have to pay, so we can get 20kW-50kW.

From Tromsø to service point in Tromdheim it is 1200km. In area around Trondheim and south you can find hige power charging points.

So charging at 40A in the area I will use my car. NOPE! But then I wil have more time to writhe here at the forum.

(Now I am a cry-baby.)

Hey Julius, you can cruise through Sweden. That is a well developed country ;-) and has a lot of camp grounds possibly with chargers... ?
