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?

I paid my 30 K € on March 31st 2011 and was given EU sig 52
So it has been 20 months wait now, the only comfort is to read about successful deliveries and experience from the US and now Canada
We are told that Signature configuration will start this month and deliverers to start in April, but we'll never know until we get the Time to build button on the home page.

I have made an reservation here in Norway to. Have paid the reservation fee, but still awaiting payment. How long does it take until they register the payment?

The dealer in oslo said it would be 8-10 mnth delivery time. Hope it comes sooner.

I made my reservation in Norway on the 9th of January, paid on the 10th and today (14th) received #2473. I was told it would be 9-12 month delivery time!

given the fact it is -10 C (14 Fahrenheit) Kind makes you think what the range will be on days like today...

I paid on 04.01.13. Why has your payment been received before mine?? Better send them an email.

kbriant: Im lucky to be on the west side og the country, doesnt get that cold here that often ;-)

psirnes, we are pretty close neighbors - I am EU Sig #45, reserved in January 2011. Still waiting for hard facts to replace the April rumors....

I reserved 27.06.2012, EU#1137, and i am on the Signature wait list. It will anyway be a Performance.
12 months from my reservation date, if i don't get the Signature.
Love the Signature-red....

Me too... the Signature red is wicked!

Finaly, they have registered my payment, got reservation number #2480 ;-)

Great to see that the model S is going to be a hit in Norway. You all just make sure to get the 85kwh battery... Lots of energy usage in the winter even when the car is just parked

GeirT, we must have ordered within minutes of each other. I too got my reservation number #2144 on 27th December.
Anyone else in Bergen with a reservation?

Tesla is a mega-hit i Norway, due to high tax on just about everything when it comes to cars. Close to 1000 reservation holders equals 50000 in US.
Looking forward to delivery of this amazing car.

I'm in Bergen, P528:-) Got a call from Tesla last week. They'll start European production in April and I will probably receive mine in June/July/August ...

Haugesund here ;-)

joerund, that is the first firm indication of shipments for Europe I have seen so far. As you are an early bird compared to me - and Winnie796 - I could hope for autumn delivery. That said, others in the forum suggest that production is cranked up to full capacity so maybe, just maybe I could hope for a summer delivery as well.

Det er von i hangandes snøre!

I hope they deliver it sooner than predicted ;-)

All i heard was that they want to start production for the sigs in march. So they'll have their delivery in april if nothing goes wrong.

Other than that it's hart to tell as nobody knows of how many of those produced cars will for europe. Also Tesla seems to produce similiar equiped cars in a row. So like in the US our number might not fit anywhere close to the delivery spot. you might get lucky and skip some hundered reservations just because you ordered the 'right' stuff. Some suggested that even the location might be an issue.

Well, you can be pretty sure virtually all the Sigs produced will be for Europe; none remain to be delivered in North America.

joerund: Did they just call you "out of the blue" or did you initiate the commmunication in some way ? I'm P1088 and haven't received any calls.

I'd be very happy to have mine in July, but August will be fine too. Preferably not much later, I want to experience the car for a while on summer tires ;)

Will there come super charger stations in Norway from Tesla?

I hav a super charger station nearby today, but this only deliver DC current and not AC. Is there any way to use the DC charger on the Tesla?

Reliable sources (!) indicate that large gas station chains are looking into providing the charging service. Remember, the gas stations does not make their profit from selling gas, but from the kiosk sales. Thus the charging service provides an even better business model for them as we would need to stay longer hence spend more :-)
Besides the rumoured payment scheme is NOK 50/USD 10 for a full charge. Should be OK for most I believe.
BTW, check the iTunes app "ladeNå" that describes in detail all the charging locations in Norway. It is amazing how many free public points that are already available. Crisscrossing our long and hilly country will seemingly be simple as power charging is concerned.

Will download the app now. Thanks for the tips!

@jkirkebo: The Tesla lady called me to have me confirm I was still taking delivery in Norway(!), I didn't think I'd indicated something else. Anyway, the summer estimate was what she gave me because she didn't want to get my hopes too high (and hedge herself, probably).

The fact that Norway is such a (relatively) big market for Tesla might give us hopes that they'll eventually build Superchargers here as well. Hopefully the recent confirmation about ChaDeMo adapters turn out to be true:-) About those superchargers I wouldn't care to live close to one, as I will charge my car during nights and only need supercharging when on an occasional trip from Bergen-Oslo, Bergen-Molde.

@joerund, I am really happy for you that it may be coming this summer.
I know you have been very patient and was in early with your reservation but I hope your delivery convinces them to deliver as many as possible to Norway, as it is such a big market for them. Selfish I know but worth hoping for.
I have never been so excited to get a car. I wasn't even this excited about my Audi A8 and that was a brilliant car.

At last someone who understands Superchargers! You want them about where your home fill-up is likely to be running out.

I pray.... joerund's P528 and mine 2145 seems awfully far apart. But once they TM a ship, a couple of thousands for Norway should be about the right number? :-)

Typo.... "..once TM ship, a couple of thousands..."


Who is having the lowest P in Norway?

P183 for me.

2480 here, hope it wont take for ever to get it.

To our Norwegian Friends:

Hvordan har du det?

Thanks for being so passionate about EVs. You will love this car. FYI, you have the most visits in the WORLD to my blog site after US visitors. That's awesome. Keep the faith, the future is coming to you this year.
