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?

@Runar???? So it is over 700 that have say no to a Signature, but are still on order list? Or is it over 700 who has cancel there order? Or can someone tell me when I can get my car?

EU Signature spots were available until about EU P900 had reserved. So anyone under P900 wasn't interested in a Sig to start with. So I don't see anything weird about P1273 now getting a vacant sig spot. I assume a few other spots have gone to people between P900 and P1273, but most are not insterested in a Sig.

I'm P1088 and I'm not on the waiting list because I do not want any of the exterior or interior colors offered on sigs, neither do I want to pay the sig premium for a couple months earlier delivery.


That means that Runar was on the Signature waiting list and he was lucky enough that enough signature reservations get moved to production (wanted the car later or in different color) or cancelled that he could still get a spot.

Does not mean over 700 said No, means that probably 20-30 or so (guesstimate) of the EU Signatures changed or cancelled their reservation...

Someone suggested there were a number of Sig reservation holders who decided after the Get Amped tour to move to production so TM could offer their places to those on the EU Sig waiting list.


Had a talk with the Get Amped team in Copenhagen before I got moved to the list (and no I don't think I was transfered because of this). The Get Amped team and the Danish employees told that a few Sig res holders wanted to switch to Production models as they wanted one of the other color options. I wouldn't assume that it is because of cancellations - simply just a question about color choices.

My reason for accepting was exactly the same - my first choice is Sig Red - and with the possibility here - I took it. Not because of getting an earlier delivery window. My guess is that it is only a question about 2 month or so.

I was trying to help people understand. I am on the EU Sig wait list since my production reservation in October. I would like a P85 Sig red too ;-) Looking at the sig numbers of people who got a place via the EU Sig wait list I am afraid that I will not be so fortunate. However I will remain hopeful until Tesla tells me otherwise. So one way in another I will get a Model S one day altgough might not be Sig red :-(

Sorry about typos: it should read:
So one way or another I will get a Model S one day although might not be Sig red :-(

Got a message that DHL will deliver my car in end of june!!! I am so exciting!!! :-):-):-)

I need to fix my garage... Get some realt power that can charge my MS...

;) Why are you exciting? Are you especially cute? Why should we get excited?

I am on the EU Sig wait list too, and I will remain hopeful until Tesla tells me otherwise.


I am curious as to the shipping method. Is there any chance you can get DHL to tell you how the car will arrive in Norway (what kind of ship, in 4-car containers or a bigger one-off shipment, etc.)?

@P85_Norway: Thought I better let you know that I made it. I now have EU Sig#425 and I am very happy - poorer but happy.

Wow, great news Julius!

I hope to get our Model S before the end of September and then we will spend 3-4 weeks driving all around Norway.

In case you didn't understand Brian's comment, he was just pointing out the fact that you said "exciting" when the word you meant to use was "excited".

Brian, might I suggest that you try a more direct approach when correcting non-native speakers of English? I suspect that your attempts to help are misunderstood by many.

Back to the waiting game for me...

#1333 EU

In Norway normally a car comes with some extra equipment. From what i can see the US version is ribbed? Anyone know if the Norwegian version/price include anything more?
Im thinking about:

-Winter tires
-Tire repair set
-First aid kit
-Emergency triangle
- Winter floor mats

Well that all I cant think of for now. Thx :)

Submitted registration early last week and payment today. Word from the dealer was delivery November/December.

And in Norway on 1. April we tell a smal lies.

I will have my car (#2440) in desember/januar.

Julius: Why so late? I am 2853 and got an indication that it would be before the end of the year. Knowing that there are 400 or so behind me and Tesla still guarantees 2013 delivery, I expect delivery in November.

It was not a good one. (I forgot my but...


Thec say 1 year when i order.
If it come before: me happy!
Easy to understand?

@Julius From what I gather us norwegians are currently looking at a 7-8 month waiting period between putting down the deposit and having the car delivered.

This also means I will have to delay my reservation as I will need a few extra months to secure enough funding for this magnificent vehicle.


Winter tires are normally never included in cars here, just on a few "business editions" coming in under the company car cutoff levels. You'll have to pay extra for these. My guess is NOK 16,000,-

Tire repair set - my guess is you pay extra for this just like in the US. Same goes for the first aid kit.

Energency triangle is required by law. Inclusion is mandatory.

Winter floor mats - I hope these will be standard here, but assume we will have to pay extra for them. They are usually included on new cars here though with some exceptions.

Anyone figured out how much an extra set of official 19" rims, with proper winter tires on them, will set us back in Norway?


I am waiting for an ansver on 19" rims and Nokian Hakka R for MS.
Thec are lokkende for rims that fits.

@Carl Barlev

I'll hope that you have your car very soon,
because I'm #1332 EU ;-)

This is so friggin boooring..... #2145 and not a pip, nothing to "stimulate" excitement; deliveries, in shipment updates, count down to my delivery. Nothing… Nada… Jack… Zip… Zilch... in Europe. Happy US customers, doing miles after miles, super charging here there and everywhere, praising, hailing, enjoying and bitching and moaning. I wish I had my MS to praise, enjoy and bitch and moan about.
Anyone else feeling the frustrations creeping in on you? Or is it just me...........?

@GeirT I recognize it... test drove last wednesday and my patience is being challenged ;-) I would really like to know a date. Even if it is November. But now I keep getting hopes from seeing updates everywhere that suggest it might be sooner. I am #2853. The only thing that is sure, is a 2013 delivery.

It's just you. You're failing mentally, and should cancel immediately to relieve the strain.

#220 EU, just signed my 60kW car over to production... ;) Now the looong wait!

GeirT, you are not alone. I follow the forums every day for a sign that our cars are coming very soon. I have to admit though, the wait is giving me time to save more money.
