Tesla delivered 145 Model S’s in the Netherlands in October – sales are up 49% year to date


The Netherlands continue to be an important market for Tesla. According to registration data, the company delivered 145 Model S’s last month, which represents a 437% increase versus the same period last year and brings the year-to-date growth to 49% or 12 more points than last month.

The company delivered 1456 cars in the first 10 months of the year based on registration data. The Model S remains the best-selling all-electric car in the country with an important lead on the second best: the Nissan LEAF with 518 units.

Earlier this year, Tesla inaugurated an impressive 840,000 sq-ft facility (picture above) in Tilburg, Netherlands to perform final assemblies on the Model S, and they are expected to repurpose the other factory they have in the country into a distribution and service center.october_2015_Tesla_netherlands
