Elon Musk: Tesla Will Postpone Delivery Of Electric Cars To Norway
In his latest Twitter message Elon Musk has claimed that Tesla Inc. slows the supply of their cars to Norway. Here, as it turned out, there are not enough competent carriers to deliver cars from the port to shops and service centers, the Bloomberg reports.
The Tesla’s head, therefore, reacted to reports that local authorities had difficulties in finding competent carriers that met Norway’s requirements for roads.
In particular, recently one truck has got into an accident that shattered two Model S cars on a trailer, the Electrek blog reported.
At the moment, the manufacturer together with the Norwegian Freight Federation is trying to solve the problem. However, while Tesla’s supplies to the country will be reduced.
Musk himself commented on the situation,
It is clear that we outperform the local logistics capacity due to the rapid assembly and delivery of the batch. At the same time, customers happiness and safety mean more than a few additional cars this quarter.
Generally speaking, Norway is the third largest market for Tesla in the world after the US and China. Moreover, every fifth car sold here has an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine.
The country relieves electric car owners of purchase taxes and road charges, and has invested heavily in infrastructure development.
