    A gathering of owners from Abu Dhabi and Dubai get together at Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi to share their love for Tesla and implore Elon to bring Tesla to the United Arab Emirates.

    There are around 30 Teslas in the UAE including some Xes and Roadsters.

    Great video OP - I didn't know that Tesla is not in the UAE actually.

    How many Ludicrous Model S in UAE
    Is there public charging available for you?
    I think a supercharger will be built before a store/service center
    Any vid/data of 11.2 run

    Hi Scarlet. There are at least 3 Ludicrous P90Ds here, excluding the Model Xs of which there is one or two.

    I do not have footage of my 11.2. I am going to try and get some footage the next time I run. Hopefully I can get an 11.1 with improved technique and a little unnecessary weight removed.

    There are loads of public chargers in Dubai but almost none in Abu Dhabi. We are hoping this will change soon as there are plans for UAE wide charging infrastructure.

    If i remember correctly, Elon already twitted a few months back (right after Model 3 launch) saying Tesla will expand into UAE. Forgot the exact time frame. Just look into his twitter account.

    Also, are you guys talking about 11.2 second for 1/4 mile? If so, there are actually a few videos on youtube already on this. Here is one:

    How about Tesla in Israel... The home of innovation.

    Why not? I haven't heard much about Tesla in Israel.

    I don't recall him specifically mentioning the UAE...a friendly reminder always helps.
