Tesla Officially Enters Portugal

Tesla has now officially entered the Portuguese market, according to an email sent to CleanTechnica. What this means in practice is that those in Portugal who want to order a Tesla Model S or Model X can now do so directly in Portugal, rather than being forced to do so in a different country.

Tesla has now officially entered the Portuguese market, according to an email sent to CleanTechnica. What this means in practice is that those in Portugal who want to order a Tesla Model S or Model X can now do so directly in Portugal, rather than being forced to do so in a different country.

In conjunction with Tesla entering the Portuguese market in an official capacity, the company will also open its first Supercharger stations in the country by the second half of the year — notably, just ahead of the expected launch of the “affordable” Model 3 sedan.

In addition, Tesla’s Destination Charging program will begin rolling out in the country over the next few weeks.

Here’s a bit more from the email:

“Tesla welcomes Portuguese customers to visit the online design studio and customize a Tesla vehicle that best suits their lifestyle. First orders of Model S and Model X vehicles are expected to arrive as early as Q2.

“Model S and Model X provide ample range for daily commute and travel. The majority of owners drive during the day and replenish the balance of remaining charge at night, waking to a full battery in the morning. Just as we would charge our cell phones, we believe the best way to recharge electric vehicles is during the hours they are not in use.”

This news follows Tesla’s official entrance into the markets of New Zealand and Spain at the end of 2016. In anticipation of the launch of the Model 3 in late 2017, Tesla has been rapidly expanding (stores, Superchargers, service centers, etc.), which has included entering markets that saw high numbers of Model 3 reservations.
