Norwegian deliveries

Norwegian deliveries

I reserved my P85 #2145 on 27. December. Yesterday I decided to sign up for the Signature wait list. The Signatures are all gone of course but I thought that maybe enough defers to open for a chance. The eternal optimist. Of course, TM UK office confirmed the wait list is long, but that I am on it.
Curious about when they expect deliveries will start in Norway, especially now that production is cranked up. I was told for now they plan 12 months from my reservation date. That means maybe for Christmas. Bummer!

Anyone else with info about Europe arrivals?

Benz | 5 augustus 2013

Have those Model Ses arrived in Drammen yet?

Jackie425 | 5 augustus 2013

@P85_Norway: The link asks me to login in - any chance to provide info here ?

Benz | 5 augustus 2013

What info is provided in that link?

P85_Norway | 5 augustus 2013

It is a picture of the Model S's on a truck in Oslo today.
Maybe this works (page 44),8295.645.html#lastPost

It requires login...

Benz | 5 augustus 2013

Does anybody know which vessel shipped them to Drammen?

tobi_ger | 5 augustus 2013

Looks like you're getting overboard a little and miss lot of sleep over this? It's just 2 more days... :)

tobi_ger | 5 augustus 2013

...and they won't let you drive your car off that ship! ;)

psirnes | 5 augustus 2013

the most likely ship is KARIN SHEPERS

she arrived yesterday from Rotterdam with containers and runs regularliy betw Rotterdam and Drammen

Benz | 5 augustus 2013

@ psirnes


So, the transport from the US to Rotterdam was done by another vessel.

Notre | 5 augustus 2013


Do you have an EU reservation? In what country? Why so interested in the ships?

Maybe/probably this:

Delivery in close....

I'm setting up insurance for my Tesla S, quite expensive: NOK 12'/year with max bonus, min risk and 18' km,

Any othe quotes?

MagnusHamnesSalbu | 5 augustus 2013

Some calling and final pice ended NOK 5.300.

HaraldH | 5 augustus 2013

Which Insurance Company was that ?
Gjensidige gave me an offer of 19000, 12000 km and 75 % bonus- terrible deal. That was for Signature Perf + 85 kw

psirnes | 5 augustus 2013

DNB "legeforsikringen")
Bilforsikring Basis TESLA MODEL 5 2013 (did not ask whether perf, I have Perf 85+
Driver and passulykke

Might get better from other vendors, but I had to have an insurance paper quickly to speed up upcoming registration

HaraldH | 5 augustus 2013

That's far better, I can also use the ¨legeforsikring¨. I'll give them a call tomorrow.

Delivery event in Zurich taking place on August 17th. First 20 Model S will be handed over to customers.

janbylund | 5 augustus 2013

KLP gave me a
Bilforsikring Kasko: Tesla S 85kw, 20 000km/år, 80% bonus
nice price :-D

HaraldH | 6 augustus 2013

Phone from Tesla today, receiving my car in Oslo aug. 22.

GeirT | 6 augustus 2013

@ HaraldH

What is your reservation number? or VIN?

HaraldH | 6 augustus 2013

EU S 76, VIN 14976

HaraldH | 6 augustus 2013

The Tesla rep. said today that the first 10 cars will be delivered tomorrow in Oslo.

GeirT | 6 augustus 2013

The agony drags on - with HaraldH low no. and late August delivery, I shall be luck to get mine by October I guess. I was clinging to the hope that they would speed up the deliveries now that the time between order and delivery in the US is less than a month...

Neat video from March 2013 event with Elon in Norway. Sorry if this was already posted earlier. Didn't notice when I skimmed over thread, but I've only been actively reading since mid-May.

I'm excited for you Norway! Elon has a special place for you since you are the first to receive cars in Europe. I'm looking forward to seeing a video of the event tomorrow. Hope the new owners also post their own videos of test drives given to family and friends!

J. :-)

Duplicate posting re Norwegian deliveries. Was at Norway Oslo showroom this afternoon Aug 6 :

1) There is no event of official nature there tomorrow, JUST delivery of the first 13 cars tomorrow. ( JUST- who are they kidding!) They were running around like headless chickens getting everything ready. As such , they were worried that lots of TMS geeks would show up.

3) The place was full with signature models to be delivered tomorrow. What a pretty sight for longing eyes.

4)TMC Norway IS aligning the wheels at the SC as part of delivery procedure.

5) There will likely be a Tesla insurance program in the next weeks. They just have to get cars these delivered in next few weeks.

6) ALLOY/ RIM SPECIFICATIONS: It is Now confirmed: BY policy, Tesla will NOT give us official confirmation of the 19 inch rim specifications. "no comment and not authorized to give you that" mumbo jumbo. Basically they want to sell THEIR rims. News on the cyclone alloys/rims are absent and not a focus right now.

7) LED FOGLIGHTS are allegedly being delivered. They certainly were on the many cars in the SC today.

8) SIMCARD A data/mobile service agreement is under establishment with one of the large providers ( suspect telenor) for 3G service for nav and internet. Option is to tether your own phone 3G wi fi.

9) FLOOR MATS are allegedly NOT included.

This is what I have for now. I feel like I have been to Mini TMC heaven Oslo branch and died :=)

What about Slacker Radio? Or Spotify, is that up and running In the EU cars? I know Slacker Radio dosen't work In EU... It's a cool feature to play what ever you like In the car... Any one Got any info...

Car-El | 6 augustus 2013


I am so sorry, but I droped out at number 2.


Benz | 7 augustus 2013

It should be starting by now (if there would be an event).

Benz | 7 augustus 2013

No video's?

Have all the cars for the day been delivered?

tobi_ger | 7 augustus 2013

@Notre: thanks for posting those, exciting!

Benz | 7 augustus 2013

"In Norway alone, we expect to deliver almost 800 vehicles this year based on current orders."

There are more than 2,000 reservations in Norway already.

Does that mean that not all of the current reservation holders will get their cars in 2013?

GeirT | 7 augustus 2013

@ Benz

It is advertised on the Norwegian Tesla webpage that if you order now you'll get delivery this year:

That 800 this year based on current orders combined with guaranteed deliveries this year if you order now, does not fly with the "more than 1,000" or even the 2,000 indications.

Something fishy here...

GeirT | 8 augustus 2013

Concerning the question wether cars for Norway are shipped direct from the US or assembled in the Netherlands, this statement should set that question straight: How is the Model S coming to Europe?

Bryan Batista: "The car is shipped in parts: the chassis, the body interior, wheels, the battery and the drive train. The parts have already been arriving in Europe since early July. They are delivered in Tilburg, in the south of the Netherlands, where our assembly facility is. European customers will start to receive their Model S in August."

Besides that, the interview with Bryan Batista is quite revealing...

Notre | 8 augustus 2013

800 Q3

1200+ Q4

Brian H | 8 augustus 2013

No sound on the interview video!

There is no need for Norwegian cars to arrive disassembled to avoid duties, so I don't think they go through the Tilburg sequence or locale.

Benz | 8 augustus 2013

Maybe that 800 figure is just a low estimate. And maybe they want to under promise and over deliver. That would explain it.

Benz | 12 augustus 2013

In Norway there will be Model S deliveries (almost) every day from now on, right?

Car-El | 12 augustus 2013

I hope so. I really want our (my wife & I) car NOW!
A small joy was my test drive I had the 9. That was... I have no word for it.

Benz | 12 augustus 2013

Were there any deliveries last week (thursday or Friday or saturday)?

Jarleø | 12 augustus 2013

Maybe the users her should start posting when they receive their cars and wich city.
Also is there a norwegian tesla forum?

NorwegianX | 12 augustus 2013

Benz: Next Norwegian deliveries reported to be at Aug. 19th.

Jarleø: Try elbilforum . no

Notre | 12 augustus 2013

"Next Norwegian deliveries reported to be at Aug. 19th."

And then they seem to start pouring them out on a more or less daily basis from all four stores (Oslo, Stavanger, Bergen, Trondheim).

Newsletter received from Tesla yesterday: "Vi trapper opp produksjon og levering av europeiske biler" (We escalate production and delivery of European cars).

Car-El | 12 augustus 2013

I'm starting to lose faith!

But our car will come... one day... or another day...

I'm tired of waiting. And I've only been waiting since January!

You who have been waiting for years. You should have a medal!

Hijan | 12 augustus 2013

About 100 workingdays left in 2013. If 2000 cars already ordered, 20 cars should be delivered each day .... The Tesla employees in Norway will have their hands full for a while...

Car-El | 12 augustus 2013

BORING ---> Order Confirmed
We have begun sourcing parts for your Model S.

I saw a brat!

GeirT | 12 augustus 2013

In communication with the Tesla help centre concerning charging installation it was indicated that I should expect to know more details by end August, that a "delivery specialist" would contact then. I am #2145.

I am however disappointed that our fellow countrymen that have been so fortunate to receive the car have avoided posted anything here, knowing we all drool to know their experience and impressions.
I guess they are too busy grinning through open landscapes... in blissful silence :-)
