Elon Musk is Confident of Prospect to Sell 10,000 Cars Annually in Germany

Tesla CEO and co-founder, Elon Musk, seems sure that Europe will appreciate the Tesla Model S, even more so than America, not only because of its much talked about qualities, but also because distances on the Old Continent are considerably shorter, therefore making it more practical to use on a daily basis. In Norway, it was so popular, in fact, that it became the country’s best-selling car for about two weeks, in September, as per previous reports.

Now, Musk goes further, talking to Welt am Sonntag, quoted by Reuters. He said, “I have confidence in the German consumer,” going on to add that “Our fast charging stations should cover around half of Germany by the end of March 2014 and the entire country by the end of 2014.” This move will be backed up by the opening of a planned number of 25 dealerships in the country, by the end of 2014.

The goal is to achieve 10,000 sales per year by 2015, with a car that starts from €71,400, but you can pay up to €109,150 for a fully-extra Signature Performance model. However, the introduction of the Model S, and the construction of the Supercharger network will do a great job in smoothing the arrival of the smaller and cheaper electric car that Tesla is reportedly working on.

You can also check out a German perspective on the Model S in the video posted below via Deutsche Welle – it’s a bit different to the usual reviews we post, especially in its approach to testing and picking out key qualities that matter.
