Tesla Motors soon will expand sales of Model S to Australia, a country that's been waiting for such a move for more than two years since the launch of the Model S.

Official introduction is scheduled for December 9 in Sydney, so someone will finally get the perfect Christmas gift.

Prices in Australia (in AUD) are several thousand above those in US. Base 60 kWh version costs over $91,000 ($78,000 in USD).

Additionally, we know that after Ford, General Motors Holden, Toyota and Mitsubishi decided to exit Australia, Tesla offered to hire engineers.

"Motoring.com.au reported that Tesla talent scouts held an interview open house in Melbourne, looking for engineers regarding a wide variety of automotive features, from crash and cooling systems to body and interior engineers."
