when you begin seller of this model in Europe?
In Europe there are 10 months of winter and then the summer is just as the batteries hold out in the cold?
goust.mcx, currently no delivery dates or even prices are known for Europe. All we know is:
- European prices will be announced "this fall".
- Test drives should become available "still this year".
- European deliveries will start "in 2013".
Maybe you want to look in this section of the forums to discuss Europe-specific information:http://www.teslamotors.com/forums/clubs/europe
Regarding winter operation, there are already a lot of existing threads with lots of information. I compiled some of them here:http://www.teslamotors.com/forum/forums/cold-weather-operation
I asked the European rep for the prices and the test drives.
Prices would be announced in october. Test drives will be in the first part of 2013.
UPDATE ON EU DELIVERY - "BY THE END OF THE YEAR"
