Five Euro-Spec Tesla Model S Sedans Show Up In Norway

Five Euro-Spec Tesla Model S Sedans Show Up In Norway

It was known that the first true production run of the European spec Tesla Model S had begun last month at the company’s Fremont assembly facility, but we had heard no reports of actual European cars being delivered to Europe.

…until now

The first of true Euro-spec cars have landed in Norway!

And why not Norway?  It’s the hottest place on the planet to sell an electric vehicle, 1 in every 28 cars sold in the country are electric.  Up until now, those sales were mostly Nissan LEAFs, but next month it will be mostly the Tesla Model S.

These first cars sighted are reportedly being used as demonstration models, but Signature Performance (85 kWh) editions are also en route to customers as well.

On display is all the new features like heated rear seats, Euro-style front nose cones and parking sensors…which are not available on the US model as of yet.  Euro charge ports.  And it also appears there is some towing functionality now with a tow hook in the front.  The batteries and front cone are shipped separate from the car and assembled on-site. In regards to the parking sensors:

    to my knowledge, the first two model s were sold in the end of june and were demonstration units, the first of the 1000 plus units already ordered in norway will start to be delivered this month.

      Yes, I think you are right on that…there might have even been a couple more. Not sure what exactly Tesla is doing with the old US-spec/converted demos now that Euro-spec has arrived. I think there is a low-volume exemption on those in some countries so that they can retail them out and still be street legal.

    if Tesla delivers all the pre-orders in one month, it will be the most sold car in Norway. Would be a cool marketing gag.

    So the US model S does not have windshield defrost? What about electrically folding mirrors or third row vents?
