Tesla is trying to deliver thousands of Model 3 in Europe and after a difficult start, it is now ramping up deliveries in the old continent and CEO Elon Musk is there to oversee the operations.
As we reported earlier this week, Tesla received its first massive shipment of Model 3 vehicles at the Zeebrugge port for European deliveries, which started a day later.
Some buyers experienced delays as Tesla apparently ran into some issues to process the first batch of cars in Zeebrugge.
The automaker wants the port to be able to handle 3,000 Model 3 vehicles per week at the location, which is a tall order.
We obtained some images of the setup they have at the port to charge and prepare the Model 3 to ship out for delivery:
Sources say that Tesla have been ramping up its effort and cars have been leaving to delivery centers in higher volume.
CEO Elon Musk was at the port on Saturday to take a look at the situation:

He says that he will also go to Tesla’s European headquarters in Amsterdam and the Tesla factory in Tilburg, which Tesla has been using to deliver Model 3.
Later on, the CEO says that he will go to Norway to “review service”.
As we previously reported, Norway, which is Tesla’s biggest market per capita, has arguably experienced some of the most difficult wait times when it comes to service.
Tesla’s fleet grew at an incredible pace in the market and its service capacity couldn’t keep up.
Norway’s EV sales are about to skyrocket to a new high with the arrival of the Model 3, which should put even more pressure on Tesla’s operations in the country.
The first boat to arrive in Europe didn’t have many cars for the market, but there are 3 more at sea and they are expected to have thousands of Model 3 vehicles for Norway.
