scotland Tesla

After Mexico yesterday, now it’s Scotland’s turn to get a new Tesla retail location, the first in the country. The automaker opened the showroom today in Edinburgh at the upmarket Multrees Walk shopping center in St Andrews Square, home to other luxury product makers including Louis Vuitton and Harvey Nichols.

Tesla already operates two Superchargers in Scotland and plans to add a few more charging locations by the end of 2016. Buyers in the country can get the Model S starting at £56,200 ($85,200) and they have access to the UK government grant for electric vehicles of £5,000.

On top of the UK grant, Scotland’s government also offers funding to install a charging station at home, which can costs over £1,000 with installation.

Tesla representative Alexis Georgeson tweeted about the launch of the Model S in Scotland:
