So it's on the move again - to where this time ?!
Pity that it didn't make it to the Frankfurt Tesla store.
Would have liked to know how the Munich-registered S got to London. Long distance trip (where did they charge?), by ship/ferry, by train/Chunnel...
Top Gear studio? :tongue:
It may be at the Royal Aeronautical Society, where Elon is giving a SpaceX talk as I write.
Were the turn signals amber?
many places to charge at 63a Tesla Motors | Tesla Fast Charging Stations in Europe
In london zerocarbonworld has several horets with charging ZeroNet - Zero Carbon World
The car had apparently started out at Luton Airport that morning, and picked up Elon at Heathrow on the way to Oxford. Not clear how it had got to Luton in the first place (flying it there seems unlikely...).
The tesla rep standing by the car confirmed that it was essentially a US-spec model with minor tweaks to pass single-car approval in Germany; he mentioned (without prompting!) that it didn't have 3-phase charging but that production cars would.
Apparently a member over at Leaftalk was told that supercharging would come to Europe.
The S looks nice on the ground in London.

Haha, I like the 3-phase part. They feel the hot breath in their necks
Strikes me as odd that they went to London with a Model S. Right hand drive production won't be before the end of 2013 I think (if it started by then).
Maybe the car was there just for Elon's talk?
I was told in August that the first batch of 500 right hand drive vehicles would be manufactured at the beginning of the second quarter 2013.
Maybe the time-line is a bit later now but should still start sometime second quarter.
Love the inquisitive look on the cab driver's face in the top photo :smile:
Elon Musk talks Model S and going to Mars
From electric cars to Mars - Elon Musk - ft business - companies - FT.com
Elon on a website I've never seen or heard of covering Model S Motor Trend's award and Mars.
I guess they don't get the Financial Times on the moon.
So that video covered the crux of the Oxford talk in about 3 minutes.
There is no downside to marketing early like this.
Here's the video from that article:
