Tesla Model S To Launch In Australia On December 9

NOV 30 2014 BY MARK KANE 10

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.”

Yeah but those new Tesla hires will not stay in Australia but will have to move to Cali.

Wonder what the plans are for superchargers and service centers with the country being rather large. Parts of Australia are doing really well with solar PV so long-range EVs will be great to have.
