First UK Tesla Model S Delivery Set To Occur Today
Tesla Motors announced that today is the day when the first-ever right-hand-drive Model S will be delivered.
The UK will get the honor of receiving the first RHD Model S.
Deliveries of the Model S to the UK are expected to be rather high in the coming months as Tesla works through a backlog of existing orders. These orders, which have been accumulating for over a year, number even more due to Tesla delaying the Model S’ entry into the UK on several occasions now.
Other right-hand-drive markets, including Japan, Hong Kong and Australia, will see Model S deliveries commence soon.
We suspect that Tesla will focus heavily on fulfilling right-hand-drive orders in the coming months, hence the delays in US deliveries at this point in time.
