Tesla had a launch party for the Model S today in Oslo, Norway.

And like the earlier launch in the US, the automaker handed out a bunch of keys (and cars) at the event.

In total what looks to be about a dozen Model S Signature sedans kicked off European deliveries.  Deliveries to the actual "EU member" countries are expected to begin in September.  The first car naturally was a red P85 (kWh) Signature Edition.

Tesla posted a pic of the first customer driving off, and a subsequent tweet (naturally):

How Else Could It First Be Announced? Has To Be Twitter!

Also of interest, Tesla reports Q2 results "after the bell" tonight (which we of course will report on here) ...coincidental timing with first Euro delivery?  We think not.
