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 hurry up and wait for that new Model 3 to arrive!
