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?

17 of 365 days.... and counting... They say 12 months? 1 year? That its 365 days.... WAIT! No, it is only 28 days in february. :-)

To day: What color? Blue? Green? or Brown?

I asked before: - Any from North Norway bought a Model S?
I live in Tromsø.

@ Bruto, Exactly - an easy formula ;-)

Looking forward to getting my Tesla S - #2147!

Anyone from Bryne??


How did you reserve a special version of the Model S?
When I pushed the reserve button, I just got a generic form. After I logged in I was able to design a P85, but do Tesla use this to put me on the right reservation list, or is there something else I should have done?

By the way: I live in Askøy just outside Bergen...

Hi @roger_buy - there is only one list for Model S. The only 'special' list was for Signature Cars, and they are all sold. If you were/are a Roadster owner, or know someone with a Roadster you can jump to the front of the line, but it is still one list.

There are two lists for Model X - reservation and regular.

edit - there are two lists for Model X - Signature and Regular.

And also to clarify - all the different versions - 40 kWh, 60 kWh, 85 kWh and Performance are all on the same list.

No 40s for Europe.

Alvern: there's plenty of us from Bryne!
I know of at least 7-8 Model S here....

Anyone received any good estimate of delivery? Tesla UK gave me an estimate of "normal" delivery time at this point of 9-11 months after reservation.
I just received my sequence number (2668)

Since there is zero experience in the UK with the Model S, that's probably as good as you'll get. Take comfort in the fact that US deliveries are now happening much earlier than recent reservers expected or were originally told. So it can happen.

Hmmm. Why did you need to talk about Tesla not saving the world... etc. Welcome your many incite full inputs, but this one leaves me wondering. Beside the plain fun of the S, given a choice between ICE cars and EVs, seems like EVs do less damage to our planet.

Thanks Norway for leading in S orders. May you enjoy many electric miles.... soon!

The damage is mostly imaginary. What's harmful about partially reversing the loss and sequestration of the plant world's primary source of structure and scarcest chemical requirement?

Some combustion products are noxious and need filtration and further breakdown. Diesel particulates seem to be rather damaging. But EVs are far from replacing diesel heavy transport so far.

All transport of people and goods are damage our world. ALL!!! It will bee pollution by making of my Tesla and shipping it to me. But hi! So is my Apple product. Mac-I-Book-phone-retina-pad-pod... :)) Do you know... I LOVE MY ELECTRIC STUFF. And I will love my Tesla Model S. And it will cost electric power to use my car, my MacBook, my iPhone.

I can not save human-race by using an EV or ICE car, but I can be more effective by my use of power so that we humans can see the year 3000 or 4000.

Nicely said.
And here in sunny California, we have installed solar which over each year has supplied more than we use. This doesn't save the world by itself, but it helps. We each do what we can. Not perfection, just a little better.

California do have sun. We have 2 month every year we do not se the sun, but in summertime we have 2 month when we can se the sun 24/7.

In Norway we are slow, so we do not think that solar panel is something to invest in. And we also want our investment to be profitable or at least save money. (That is why so many want to by Model S on Norway, it is cheap if you see performances/cost)
And we have some rules when it comes to electric that is very strict. We are not allowed to connect anything to our electric power net that can produce power without a license.

A friend who owns a Roadster (Oslo) configured their Model S last week. Delivery was "earliest in June" . Seems like we need to add 2 months to previous estimates....

Hei Peter Møller,
Actuallyt, June delivery is not later than previous estimates. Europe production will begin in April. Shipping from LA to Europe and other time consuming stuff like waiting to get loaded onto a container ship and final assembly in Holland (treated in another thread) will take at least 1.5 months, probably 2. I also have a low norwegian Roadster reservation number (not signature though), and I am thrilled to hear of your friend has configured. He surely has a signature reservation?

Have #56 (June 2009)
Was given a loose estimate of late summer (July/August?) about a week ago..

Hi! Julius,North Norway

I have reservation #2476 and live in Tromsø. I guess there is a great chance that our cars will be delivered at the same time, at least if we both are going to have them delivered in Tromsø :-)
We will definately be needing a Tesla Service Point in Tromsø, if not they better come to Tromsø once a year to service our cars!

YES !!

:)) I am not alone in Tromsø! JIPPI! But a Tesla Service Point in Tromsø or nearby will depend on how many cars they will serve. So I think Tesla Service Ranger is our option. Or we can drive to Trondheim. SuperCharger is more what i want. Narvik, Fauske, Mosjøen and Steinkjær. It is 250km/160miles (give or take) between, so we can drive "uninterrupted" from Tromsø to Trondheim.


:)) Happy, happy happy??? One question? what was/is your res.number?

I paid € 30 000 exactly 22 months ago (at a rate of 1EUR = 7,895 NOK) and received reservation number 039552
My garage now says deliv estimation Jun-July 2013 (it says for orders completed by feb 3rd, so I guess they are having a rush now to fill up a ship)


And I guess some one hold you back, or will you swim to meet the ship? ;-)
(I know I am over exiting.)

That RN you quoted is meaningless, used for internal Tesla tracking only. Use the initial reservation number you were given, should be <400 right now, since you reserved a Signature.

He is SIG 52 and received the invite meanwhile - yeah :)

From the Time to Build Europe:

psirnes | 31 JANUARI 2013
EU SIG 52 FINALIZE button appeared to day- Finalized Sig Red, non perf , Tan, Pano, Obeche matte. 19 inch weels

#2440 - #52 = 2388 and then it is my turn!!!
(I am over excited as a kid.)

Not to spoil your fun, but I believe it is:

#2440 + 500 - #52 = 2888 and then it is your turn...

Have you posted your reservation on the ZeeMap? A wiki-map of the reservations of S- and X- reservations all over the world. Here is a link to the Tesla Motors Club's thread:
