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?

I wonder if TM is using a big cheap slowboat or a fleet of wave-skimming hovercraft and hydofoil tankers. ;)

typo: and hydrofoil

If they box in 4 cars, I will tip on a Maersk boat.
It can be short of space in one boat... HA-HA!

Tesla cars are not shipped on ferry on fossil fuel. They use sailing cargo ferries moving on wind power. As wind direction is not favourable, Norwegian deliveries are late!

... in the doldrums?

@Brian H

'Hydofoil' - the new stealth transport vehicle.

Mine is now also "under production". Although I´m a general production customer, I´ve been waiting for three years or so (registered in the US first, then moved it over to Norway when that became possible) - thus I have to say I´m quite fine with Signature-people having to wait longer than me although they have put down a little more than I have... ;) Delivery in late August is indicated, I´d guess mid Sept. is more likely... ;)

@ Julius,North Norway

Im so sorry for putting my vin number on you res number in the google document. Was a bit quick there. I removed it again and put it in the right place.

Hope i didnt confuse you ;-)

Wow. It looks like things are hitting a fever pitch in the EU. It reminds me of our experience while waiting for our Signatures a year ago.

If someone can find out the name of the ship carrying the cars you can track your car via AIS (Automatic Identification System).

The web page is

I am so excited for you!

Maybe it's possible to find out which vessels have left San Francisco early July AND were going to Norway?

Not San Francisco, they go from the East Coast by ship.

Do you know which city on the East Coast?

Vessel from NY to OSL would normally take less than 2 weeks, I have ordered several containers from Miami to OSL via Amsterdam, and even then the container arrived within 2 weeks...

I saw Sig Red Model S destined for Europe on the production line during a Fremont factory tour in late June. I love my white Model S, and I think the car looks great in any of the available colors. But that Sig Red is stunning -- well worth the wait!

Do they send the cars from CA to the East Coast on freight trains?
Which company (ies)?
From which City/Harbour at the East Coast?
Name of Shipping company(ies)?
Vessel names ?
Wanna start tracking....

P85 please come to me SOON :-)

Sig reservation holders report call from Tesla confirming delivery Aug. 14th.

Will they organise an event on August 14th for the first deliveries?


WHAT! H _ _ _! :(((((((

(Just kidding, no harm!)

No ship in sight yet?

It should not take more than 2 weeks from now, for the ship to arrive in Drammen, Norway.

Will there be arriving a ship with Tesla Model S EV's on a monthly basis in Drammen, Norway?


I orderd my Model S in February and in april they said I was going to get the car in sept-okt. I have the number P2879.

I got a mail from Tesla today and now the car is arriving to trondheim/norway in november
I'm not happy abot it :-(

But the positive thing is I'm going to be very happy in november :-)


is that your 1st delay? we already had 5 or so delays and 4 years of waiting :-) get used to it...

"My boat is loaded with...."

I am starting to regret that I order a Model S!
Then I be sorry that I regret....
OOooh! this pain!

I feel real sorry for you folks that have waited up to 3 or 4 years....

When I was at Teslive recently I took the factory tour and saw LOTS of cars identified as heading for Norway. All of the VIN numbers I saw were between 15000-16000. And as I recall all that I saw had bumper sensors installed.

I had to get a Tesla infusion and dropped by the Tesla store in Oslo yesterday. I tried to pry out of the very nice people there, the deliveries but mum was the word. Not even the confirmed mid-August for some was acknowledged. So, discipline is well preserved. As I only have the parts sourcing to go by I shall continue to expect mine by Sep/Oct.
By the way, it was confirmed that the SuperChargers shall be all in place by the time the cars arrives. It was not confirmed how many of the 7 though.
The display model was the dark grey with the grey rims, black interior. A beauty. I was starting to regret until I saw the blue outside. I am all good :-)

I got a phonecall today about delivery. Got one last week also, but today I was told the I will get my car in Oslo at the 7'th of August. What a joy!!

@SignatureNorway That sounds great! What is your signature reservation number? And what is your VIN?

Sig #423 delivery 14-22 of August. All is well.

@merijin I have signature #280. But I seen (norwegian forum) that lower signature numbers have later delivery, maybe because they didn't finelize at once as I did..
