FT.com / Home UK / UK - Tesla to sell electric cars in Europe Tesla Motors plans to begin selling electriccars in Europe next year, taking advantage of the weak dollar. Ze'ev Drori, chief executive of the US start-up, told the Financial Times that Tesla would start selling its Roadster sports car for just under €100,000 ($156,000), on the continent by the third quarter. It began production in the US last month. [...] Tesla would target "obvious" big markets such as Germany, France and the Netherlands, as well as countries such as Norway and Denmark, which offer generous tax incentives for low-emission cars. Tesla will not sell in the UK initially because it produces no right-hand-drive vehicles. I sure hope the 100.000 includes the 19-25% value added tax. In most places it's illegal to advertise prices excl. tax to the greater public.
