Though the Tesla Model S is not available for purchase in the United Arab Emirates, one was recently spotted on the roads of Abu Dhabi.

Of course, Abu Dhabi, like Dubai, is well known for being packed full of wildly expensive supercars, so seeing a Model S there should not be cause for surprise.

Tesla itself had considered selling the Model S in the United Arab Emirates, but that idea has not been pursued by the automaker as of late.

However, it's come to our attention that the Model S is now one of the world's most widely available electric vehicles (referring to its availability in dozens of nations around the globe), so a Model S spotting in far-off lands is sure to become increasingly common.
