Tesla’s strong overseas Model 3 push teased with 9k VIN registrations for Europe



Tesla has gotten to a point where it’s capable of creating the Model 3 en masse. With the vehicle now saturating North America, the time has come to bring the electric sedan into the international industry. Within this light, Tesla seems set to kick off 2019 on a strong note, beginning the first week of the year with more than 14,000 Model 3 VIN registrations — over 9,000 of which are cars for the European industry.

As could be seen in the information aggregated by Model 3 VIN tracking team @Model3VINs, Tesla had started 2019 with a string of more than 14,000 filings. One of these, more than 9,600 were listed with restraint methods that signaled that the automobiles were configured for Europe. With these latest figures, Tesla had broken the 200k barrier with its Model 3 VIN registrations — a prominent milestone for a car whose production was beset by challenges its first calendar year.

The company’s Model 3 VIN registrations for Europe bodes well for its Tesla’s growth to the area. The electric automobile manufacturer, after all, is allegedly still seeking to get “homologation” acceptance to sell automobiles in Europe. In an announcement to the Los Angeles Times, though, Tesla noticed that it was working closely with regulators and that it expects to obtain approval for its Model 3 after the 2018 holidays.

In case Tesla receives homologation approval shortly, the organization would have the ability to follow through with its plan of shipping 3,000 Model 3 into the area a week beginning in February. This would offer the Model 3 period to saturate the European market ahead of other superior EVs saturate the market, one of which is the Audi e-tron, an all-electric SUV unveiled last year. Even the e-tron’s European launch initially got delayed because of problems with its own applications, although a later statement by the heritage automaker on December into EV publication Electrive said that the e-tron had forced it during homologation.

Tesla, for its part, is moving full throttle towards the Model 3’s European push. Belgian news agency Focus-WTV, for one, has noticed that the electric sedans will be arriving every week in the port of Zeebrugge, that is situated on the coast of Belgium. To improve the shipping of the Model 3 further, Tesla is also reportedly partnering with transportation firm International Car Operators (ICO), that uses RoRo (roll-on, roll-off) ships that are capable of loading and unloading cargo quickly.

To support the influx of the Model 3 at Europe, Tesla is also hard at work rolling out Superchargers that are outfitted with double charge cables. These stations, which can be fitted with a Type 2 plug plus a CCS plug, will be perfectly compatible with the Model 3 for the area, which are with a CCS port. Tesla intends to retrofit its existing Supercharger Network in Europe to adapt the Model 3 also. 

The Tesla Model 3 is a car explained by Elon Musk as a “bet-the-company” project, a car that pretty much determined the potential of the corporation. Despite initial production challenges, the Model 3 was proving itself in the US market, standing among the best-selling automobiles in the nation over the past couple of months regardless of the nation ’s notable preference for vehicles like SUVs and trucks. In foreign places, the Model 3 really could have more possible. Tesla, after all, noted in its Q3 2018 Update Letter that the midsize premium sedan market in Europe is “more than twice as large as the exact same section in the US. ”
