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?

New store in Oslo opens October 3rd. Its located at Skøyen, while the other store will continue at Alna

That's a good sign of progress. The Amsterdam store is also expected to be open November 2013.

I wonder if there is a Tesla Club in Norway?

How long does it usually take from the changed status: In production until production complete ? Should we count aprox 1 month from production complete until the car arrives Norway ??

I registered the order in mid february and signed the papers mid may.

What is the experience so far ?

@ dagb

I experienced 'in production' for about 10 days. As my delivery is indicated to mid-November I believe ~6 weeks from 'delivery/pickup' status until actual pickup in Norway.

Lots of flat 12V batteries reported the last few days in Norway ... People are stranded on the mountais and no help close by ..... Bugs must be fixed

Is it possible to carry a spare 12V power source and some way to connect it, maybe via the terminals behind the nose cone (?) for such emergencies? It may not need to be very big just to limp home to civilization.

Norway: Registered Tesla vehicles in September: 616

Yes, that's an option ... but it shouldn't be necessary :)

@Lance Westin

That's great. Where did you get the info? Any source or link that you can share with us?

Even better

Tesla-simply the best in September. No 1

Got an email today from Tesla to say my MS was on its way to Norway from California.

Got an email today from Tesla that say ours MS is sent from factory to Norway.

There are some threads on jumpstarting in the case of a dead 12V. But I think that doesn't really get you too far. Do they have roadside service in Norway?

use Google translate :)

#2145 - on its way!

What does my Tesla say?






Congratulations, you must be very happy now you know that your Model S is on its way to you.

Finally the long awaited message after sourcing parts forwhatseemslikeever: They're actually building my car!

So a November delivery could probably happen.

VIN 18496


In production 02. oktober
vinn. 19399

Tesla call me. Delivery date 25. november.

@ Julius


I am already looking forward to the October 2013 sales figures in Norway.

My is vin 18527 and #2998 still soursing parts !!??

Option? fire extinguisher?



The sourcing parts message on the dashboard seems to be at times not very indicative of what is really going on with your car's progress.

I picked up my car on July 28th in Fremeont -- that very morning, the dashboard stated that they had begun sourcing parts for my car.


October will be significantly lower than September. Tesla paused Norway-production most of September.

I think your experience is more of an exception, than the rule. But judging from the VINs reported in this thread, as well as other reports on the site, it is obvious that VIN / and delivery dates are poorly correlated at best.
It has been suggested that TM may be changing this now, and aim for production to follow reservations more closely. I hope this is true.

Keep your hopes up! Mine went in production yesterday afternoon, and your VIN is mine + 31, so maybe tomorrow...


Are you sure about that?

David, the problem with a dead 12v is that the doors will not open so you can't get into the car. Just a quick jump charge and the doors open. The big battery could still be almost fully charged and take you Home......

What is the experience due to the winter tires for those who get the car delivered i Norway. Do you get them together with the car delivery and are there any extra cost ? Is it right that the rims are identical as the 19" rim that is standard for the MS ?

If I've understood the above VINs correctly there are already around 2000 Model S' in Europe??
