Starting next month, Tesla intends to begin supplying Electric Model 3, a modified Long Range in Europe. The company only expects permission from the Dutch Road Traffic Control Authority (RDW). This will allow Tesla to sell its electric cars throughout Europe without having to get permission from any EU country. In fact, this is a formality because in early January this year, Tesla launched a Model 3 pre-sale in a number of European countries.
European debut model 3 came at a critical time for Tesla. A few days ago, the company cut seven percent of its work to reduce costs and at the same time increase the production of cheaper versions of electric cars. Tesla Chief Executive Officer Ilane Musk announced redundancies via email to employees, stating hopes that supplying the more expensive Model 3 versions in Asia would yield more profits. And sedan sales in Europe and China will help companies compensate for tax deductions for the purchase of electric vehicles.
Mssk also stressed the importance of selling version 3. A cheaper model. Thanks to this electric car, Tesla can expand into other markets as well. Last year, the company sold 138,000 electric vehicles in the US and is now heading to Europe.
