Tesla said that it will start to deliver the Model X in Europe by the end of the month. As we reported yesterday, Tesla achieved its exit production rate of 2,000 vehicles per week for the quarter early, which is a good indicator that the automaker can achieve its Q2 production goal of ~20,000 vehicles.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk was in the Netherlands today for the opening ceremony of Tesla’s second plant in Tilburg. The company already had a ‘final assembly factory’ in the city (see picture below), where the company completes the assembly of the Model S’s going to the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany.
