When start the production of Tesla X in the Netherlands?

Wanneer begint Tesla met de productie van de Tesla X in Tilburg?

It's not in English but I'll translate;

"Where the hell are our X's?"

@Kitty LOL

Damn, just called Tesla sales. Europe has a different charging system. Tesla expects to start not before the start of summer with delivery.
For all Swiss, Dutch, Norwegians, Germans and other Europeans; patience.

@Gert van Veen: I was told by Tesla here in Belgium, TM needs first to get the X model licensed in the various countries, which process may take three to four months, but the required adaptations are relatively minor and will be handled in Tilburg in the same way as those for the S model.
I still hope that my signature X can be delivered in April-May nextg year...

From TMC, maybe appearance at Geneva International Motor Show 2016

Just got a call from Tesla Sales - I've just been upgraded off of the European Signature Waiting list :-)))) Things are brewing - Tesla Europe is getting ready.

Thus I'm hoping to have my Sig X by this summer. Maybe a birthday present early May? The sooner the better, but I'm struggling to keep my expectations realistic.

Real people, Tesla staff included, hope to see the Model X at the Geneva Auto show in march.
Only Wall St "analysts" and Tesla detractors want to see Model 3 presented there now - just so they have ground to bash once again if it's not there...

@eric.zucker please give those folks my contact details and ask them to upgrade me as well :) based in London here ;)

@eric.zucker: How much of the car is made in Europe? Do they send over a white or painted chassis for assembly or something else?

eric.zucker | 20/01/2016

@aesculus things may have evolved, it used to be that Tesla assembled the car fully in Fremont, tested it, then removed the wheels and battery for shipping.
In Tilburg, they reassemble and modify the car to European standards. Different charging connector, probably a different charger (3 phase 230/400V), DAB vs XM radio, etc. it's possible there are different allowed frequencies for key fobs, radar, sonar as well. We don't have Homelink here.

Got a similar information from Tesla here, first european signatures would be called to configure on the occasion of the Geneva Auto show, with deliveries early summer holidays.

gerardP | 20/01/2016

It would be nice if they would invite the signatures to the Geneva auto show and have a model X to show ;))

eric.zucker | 08/02/2016

I don't care if Tesla invites us, I'll definitely be there.

The Model X is such a news event it would be inconceivable not to have it there. It will be there. Cannot be otherwise.

gerardP | 08/02/2016

I intend to be there too, should the Model X be presented, but why is it that TESLA does not officially confirm this?

Jean PierreD | 08/02/2016

i have asked (suggested) my tesla agent if tesla is plannning anything special (friendly) in geneva for signature holders. NO answer so long

eric.zucker | 09/02/2016

@gerardP, @Jean PierreD: They want to keep an element of surprise, maybe? If that's the case they are probably under strict orders not to say anything.

eric.zucker | 11/02/2016

Hot News!!!

I just got an invitation to see Model X in full glory on the 27th of Feb 2016 in Geneva. I'm going, of course. If there is anything you want me to ask, photograph, video, record, measure, smell, hear, touch, taste or weigh, fire away.

This is just one week before the Geneva Auto show begins ...
I'll let you draw your own conclusions as to whether Model X will be present or not.

HOORAY! X-mas is arriving!!!

sra | 11/02/2016

@Eric. Who is the owner or which Tesla facility is showing it?

Red Sage ca us | 11/02/2016

Svein: It is likely the car that is to be on display at the Geneva Auto Show. There have been photos posted of a Deep Blue Metallic Model X that is currently in Switzerland, at a Tesla Service Center. It is presumed that will be at the upcoming show.

eric.zucker | 11/02/2016

I posted the link to the event in another thread "See the First Model X in Switzerland ". Geneva SC.

deti | 11/02/2016

Hey Eric.Zucker any chance i can be your guest to enjoy the event with you? I also have a reservation for a model x

eric.zucker | 11/02/2016

My wife is coming, and the kids are also very impatient, if I can bring them along. So sorry, I've got a full house and backups...

eric.zucker | 11/02/2016

@Red: deep blue metallic? That's mine!!! Except I haven't been invited to configure yet.

eric.zucker | 23/02/2016

Just got official confirmation that Model X will be presented in Geneva Auto Show:

Model X in Geneva

March 3 to 13.

rbi | 29/02/2016

I was at the exclusive Model X reveal invitation last saturday in geneva. They presented a blue X (not signature). This car will be displayed at the Geneva Motor Show starting March 3rd. Guests have been informed, that configuration for early sig reservation holders will start within the next few weeks. Their cautious expectation for first european deliveries is late summer.

eric.zucker | 29/02/2016

I was there too, more info and photos on this thread:
