Hello European :)
Why no European waiting rooms here for Model 3 orders? Great to see their ordering and delivery experience.
Unless I missed something (always possible), no one in Europe can order yet, hence nothing to report. Just us lucky Canadians and Americans.
I thought it was open to Europe 2 days back.. Maybe our european friends can confirm
We‘ve been able to order for the past couple of years, Since December 2018 we can spec our order (Switzerland). They seem to be importing only the top spec models - 4wd, long range or performance only choice.
According to a variety of posts on FB, certain LHD European countries can now place orders.
I've seen comments from Holland, Norway, Switzerland.
Germany will be available soon. Not sure of France yet.
Only configuration is AWD, with or without performance, and people who just placed orders are being told February delivery.
Most likely Tesla will activate manufacturing for European configurations around Christmas and start loading them onto ships in Oakland for their trip through the Panama Canal. It will offset a predicable short-term dip in US demand in Q1 and keep the factory running at full speed.
I sit corrected!
Don't feel bad Charlie, it is a matter of hours at this point. So far some European countries have been able to configure, others are still waiting and should be able to do so in the coming days.
The long wait seems finally to be over!!
If interested we'll keep you posted as things continue to evolve
