Tesla Model 3 to arrive in Europe in February
Tesla has finally confirmed the details for the market launch of its Model 3 in Germany, and the prices and configuration details for other European countries have also leaked out.
There was always talk of the beginning of 2019, but now the Californians have released the details for a European kick-off date at the beginning of February. They also say it will now only be a matter of days until the configurator is activated in Europe. This means the chance to make binding reservations for the Model 3.
However, as has been the case in the USA, only the premium versions of the Model 3 will be available – that is the Performance model or the long-range AWD model for delivery in February. According to Tesla, the timing of its deliveries depends on the time of reservation, and the place of delivery and configuration.
The European Model 3 will have a different charging port, opting for the continental standard CCS combo as we reported, with Tesla retrofitting its Supercharger stations to accept both of its proprietary connectors and the EU connectors.
Included in the below prices for Europe is the black or white “premium interior” and 18-inch aero rims (the Performance model comes with 20-inch rims including red brake callipers). The autopilot hardware is a standard fitting, with buyers having to dig into their pockets to activate the extended autopilot.
