Tesla UK Boss: Model 3 RHD Production To Begin After Start Of European Deliveries
Isn’t it funny who you meet in line while putting down a deposit on a Tesla Model 3?
For friend of InsideEVs, and “Electric Vehicle Guy” Paul Atkins (@ElecVehicleGuy), it was Tesla’s Country Director for the UK & Ireland – Georg Ell
Not only did Paul get the nice snapshot with Georg, looking happy about the strong Model 3 reservation turnout today, but he also got a little information from him at the same time.!
“I’ve just been to put a deposit on a Model 3 in the UK at Tesla Birmingham and have bumped into @mrgeorgell George Ell head of Tesla UK.
He confirmed that after the start of European deliveries right-hand drive configurations will begin production. This is likely to be mid to late 2018.”
So, for those following the roll-out details religiously. Here is the apparent order of operations:
US West Coast, US national, Canada, Europe/Asia, RHD Europe, RHD other.
Our thanks to Paul for the update…now hurry up and wait for that new Model 3 to arrive!
