Tesla is preparing to ship a huge number of electric vehicles in Europe as part of the expansion of sales Model 3 on the old continent. As we reported earlier, Tesla delivered the first large batch of electric cars Model 3 in the port of Zeebrugge.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk personally visited Europe to control the first deliveries of the Tesla Model 3 and confirmed that the company has faced some difficulties in the processing of cargo at the port. After that, Tesla has ceased its third-party contract for the preparation of cars Model 3 for delivery to European ports, in order to cope with this problem.
Since then, the automaker is trying to increase the volume of supplies to Europe. Musk announced last night that Tesla has around 4 000 vehicles, ready to send to the Old continent. He shared an impressive photo of the Tesla that are ready to be loaded on the ship at the port of San Francisco.

While Musk did not specify whether it was preparing for dispatch only vehicles of Model 3, or in the port are other models of the brand (Model S and X).
