About a 3 weeks or a month ago I saw a Tesla MS picture on Flickr and just googled it to find out what kind of car it was. Since then I am badly hooked.
I read tons of articles, tons of posts, watched too much YouTube movies on tesla motors, on the cars, on Elon Musk, Space X,… all the stuff that people who get the virus get to do once they are hooked.
Though I know it will never make sense for Tesla Motor to open shop in Rwanda, I clearly know I will drive this car in Rwanda no matter what it will take. I have to.…
I know I will not have access to enough after sales support (apart from over the Internet updates) but this won't stop me to think about it and finally get it.
I am currently driving a fully loaded Ford Explorer 2012 which seems to be on sale only in Canada, USA and Mexico. It cost me double the price it cost an US Customer because of transport and import taxes, but these are things we are used to this end.
Am now just have to work on how I am going to enable myself to buy it in the next year or two and think about how it will get here: it takes 2 to 3 months to get a car from the states to Kigali which is ok for a ICE car but may not be a good idea for an electric car. Will I have to get it air lifted ???
