Tesla Now Accepting Both Model S and Model X Orders in Japan
Tesla Motors was the only US automaker to appear at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.
Why was Tesla there? It’s simple to answer that question. Tesla Motors was there to let Japanese buyers know that it’s now accepting orders/reservations for the Model S and upcoming Model X.
The process in Japan is much the same as it is in the US. Tesla requires a $2,500 full refundable deposit on Model S order and is asking for $5,000 to reserve a Model X or $40,000 for a Model X Signature.
It’s not yet known precisely when Tesla will deliver the ordered Model S sedans to Japan, but we suspect it’ll be around the same time deliveries commence in China, which is listed as early 2014.
