Why can't you preorder the Model 3 in Israel

So many new countries have the option to preorder the Model 3, what about Israel?

Hmmm... Because of Better Place, perhaps...? Maybe no one in local government wants to be bothered...

I presume Tesla has no stores and service centers yet in Israel? Currently no reservations or orders are allowed in countries Tesla cannot sell in or service cars in. While that sucks for potential customers in countries where Tesla is not yet present, it sort of makes sense. Hard to support a customer when you don't have offices in that country.

Another issue for Tesla is dealing with all the compliance issues of each country. This is non-trivial and often software and hardware are modified for each country they sell in.

Apparently, you can order from Russia, though you might have a hard time getting your money back.
