3,000 per week is more than 12,000 per month

According to the Belgian news agency Focus-WTV (via Teslarati), Tesla intends to ship to Europe about 3,000 Tesla Model 3 weekly, beginning on February!

That's a lot of cars - about 12,000 per month, which over the longer-term would place the Model 3 at #1 among all plug-ins in Europe, as the Nissan LEAF this year probably will fail to achieve an average of 4,000/month.

Transport of the Model 3 by the sea takes about 15 days (through the Panama Canal). Cars are expected to arrive in the Zeebrugge docks in Belgium.

Assuming that production of Model 3 will be:

  • 7,000 per week: 4,000 (≈16,000 per month) will be available for U.S., Canada and China
  • 10,000 per week: 7,000 (≈28,000 per month) will be available for U.S., Canada and China
Bonus: ordering Tesla Model 3 in Europe
