Tesla CEO Elon Musk visited Norway to speed up the process of increasing service capacity in the key market for the automaker after the delays and bottlenecks that caused the customer dissatisfaction in the richest country in Scandinavia.
Stay the Mask in Norway was part of a trip to Europe, which the Director General announced on Twitter on Saturday, when the company began its deliveries delivery Model 3.
Norway, a country with a population of just over 5 million people, however, is the third-largest market for Tesla thanks to generous incentives for vehicles with low emissions and high taxes on conventional cars. But the lack of capacity for maintenance and repair has led to the emergence of long queues, which raises more questions about the ability of the company to keep pace with its own growth.
Over the weekend, Musk held a “constructive meeting” with the leadership of the Norwegian service team, — said the representative of the local Tesla even Sandvold Roland (Even Sandvold Roland) in response to questions by e-mail.
“Tesla Norway has taken significant steps to improve its service capacity in 2018, including a doubling of the number of service personnel”, — said the representative. “The meeting was focused on how this positive development can be accelerated further.”
More details about the meeting are not reported, as the number of electric car Model 3, which will be delivered to Norwegian customers.
Norwegian media also reported that Musk has visited the company’s offices in Oslo on Sunday.
