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?

In Europe there is also completing facility in Tilburg (Netherland) so the boat is not going directly to Norway but to Netherland first to complete Model S.

Are there any news (facts) about Superchargers in Norway (or any EU country) thus far?

@ Jolinar, I thought it was only Tesla cars destined for EU countries that go to Tilburg for final assembly. I thought that because Norway isn't part of the EU, Tesla cars destined for Norway bypass that and go directly to Drammen.


interesting point... I don't know about that...

How many times per week/month does a vessel that came from the US, arrive in Drammen?


According to Telsa Norway all Model S for Europe will be offloaded in port in Netherlands. The EU cars need some further assembly at Tilburg in order to avoid EU taxes. Cars for Norway (non-EU) are completely assembled already in US and will be not go to Tilburg but directly transfer in port to another ship destined for Drammen.

But nobody can try to find out on which vessel this first shipment of Tesla Model S EV's might be transported to Norway?

By the way, how long from VIN issued until we pay?

@ Geir T: "By the way, how long from VIN issued until we pay?"

I guess you pay when you get your car.

@ Benz: "How many times per week/month does a vessel that came from the US, arrive in Drammen?"

Not so often. Drammen is a specialised harbor for cars and receives appr. 100.000 vehicles per annum, but quite few from the US. Probably the containers with the TMS´s are unloaded ïn the Netherlands though and reshipped from there.

@tobi_ger: "Are there any news (facts) about Superchargers in Norway (or any EU country) thus far?"

The first wave of superchargers in Norway this year will include six locations in Southern Norway connecting the four largest cities.

Three of the six are already under actual construction and expected to be ready for use later this summer. There will also be another SC connecting the capital cities Oslo,Norway and Stockholm,Sweden.

@Notre : happy to hear that, thanks!

@ Notre

I read Arnebjarne's NOK 702,000 set back as being the actual payment, but maybe he described the commitment. You are likely right, that we pay when we get the car.

Somebody in the Norwegian forums quoting Elon Musk himself claims that the first vessel crossing the Atlantic with Tesla cars will go directly to Norway. I guess that is plausible as he said in Oslo earlier this year that the first batch of EU-cars would be reserved for Norway. No logistical reason for stopping in the Netherlands other than separating cars destined for the different markets. Maybe also the facilities there are not ready yet.

It would make more sense if the vessel would directly go to Drammen, Norway. As the first shipment includes cars for Norwegian customers only, right?

The first shipment could also be the complete batch of European Signatures. It would be controversial if Norwegian R and particularly P cars were to be delivered to customers here before the EU Signatures, but this is all mere speculation and I think we just have to wait and see.

Family of 5, getting rid of our big diesel 7seater. We have now jumped on the electric bandwagon. The parts are getting sourced, and the MS should be delivered late december here in Trondheim. Pretty excited! This will be our only car, (except my BMW e3 -75(Bavaria), so I'll still be visiting the fuelstation from time to time). Ordered with everything except performance+, 21" and alarm. Anyone else ordered a red one? Hope not...

Happy for you Kjartan. The club is growing day by day. Do you have an invoice number?

Most people here in Norway seems like you to buy the car with almost all available extras. Makes me believe the car would sell well even without the tax incentives. Some rumor here today that politicians are proposing to extend the zero tax and other incentives from 2017 to 2025. Elections this fall, so it may well be possible.

"Parts getting sourced" for delivery late December. LOL. That is Teslaisk for "you get your car when it´s ready and you don´t need to know what happens until then".

My status changed today to "parts getting sourced" after beeing blank for a couple of days. My shceduled delivery is Sept/Oct...
But I share Notres view on delivery: It'll get here when it gets here!
(den som venter på noe godt... ;-)

Thanks! Not worried about deliverytime. I can wait till spring 2014.

Year 2025 sounds nice, we use almost 20' nkr on roadtaxes, just for commuting.

My status changed today: !! :)

Production Complete

Your Model S Signature is being prepared for pickup or delivery.

@ HaraldH

Congrats, your Tesla Model S will soon come to Norway.

New status yesterday; Production Complete. Being prepared for pickup or delivery.

But the stange thing is that the App went from "switch on remote access..." To "No vehicle linked to this account"

Anyone else?

To our Norwegian friends -

I was in the factory a few days ago and saw many cars on the production line marked "Norway".

You will love this car. It is so good, I personally bought two of them.

@ Zebuf; What is your reservation number?

@ Mark K; your impression is that they do batch production of cars to Norway or it was random cars in the production line with Norway tags?

Based on the recent Wired video with factory footage I'd say that as a visitor you couldn't make the difference of batch processing unless you're working there. E.g. different colors are not an indicator as painting is done very early on the core body.
Just my EUR 0,02.

@ Mark K

Thank you. That information is very encouraging. Did you see any cars marked for other countries, or only for Norway (and US)? Any Sigs marked for Norway? Shouldn't be if our assumption that they are long finished and shipped is correct.

Got ours VIN: 17XXX

A small step for Tesla, a giant leap for me.

@ tobi_ger

We are on NOK not EUR ;-) But your O.O2 is good anyway

Finaly got my vin number: 17398 ;-)

I know, I have to live with EUR every day. lol
