Expanding Overseas, Tesla To Open 30 New EU Locations This Year

This week Tesla Motor reported it would open 30 new stores and service centers in Europe while it expands its Supercharger network to make way for increased Model S sales in global markets.

The American electric automaker, which Americans are still learning about, said on Tuesday it expects this year to sell double the number of cars to Europe and Asia as it will in the U.S., having begun sales in some countries already.

This spring right-side drive Model S versions will be made available in the UK, and Tesla has already reported some successes in Germany, Switzerland, and elsewhere.

In January, Tesla reported Superchargers now connect Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich as well as from Germany to Amsterdam, Zurich, and Innsbruck.

“By the end of March 2014, 50 percent of the German population will live within 320 km of a Supercharger,” said Tesla in Januar. “and 100 percent of the population will be covered by the end of the year.”

Last year Tesla sold 22,477 units globally, and most were to the U.S.

Plans for China are also in the works, as this too promises a growing market.

Tesla has said it will not gouge on the price, saying this is a practice other automakers participate in, but it would refrain.

Instead, the China Model S sedans would be priced the same as in the U.S. but with import duties and taxes added, as well as shipping costs.

Tesla’s stock price is hovering in the $253 range today.
