Tesla Motors opens assembly plant in Tilburg, Netherlands

23 August 2013

Having begun the first European deliveries of Model S, Tesla Motors opened its Tilburg Assembly Plant. The Tilburg facility will serve as the final assembly and distribution point for Model S vehicles sold in Europe as well as Tesla’s European service and parts headquarters.

Some of the very first Dutch, Belgian, French and German Model S customers received their cars today at the brand new facility.

The 18,900 m2 facility receives new Model S units shipped over from the US for final assembly before being delivered across the continent.

Being centrally located in Tilburg enables efficient, timely and cost effective operations throughout Europe, Tesla says. Parts can be distributed to anywhere across the continent within 12 hours. Tilburg, about 80 km (50 miles) from the port of Rotterdam, is connected by an excellent rail and motorway network to all major markets.

Deliveries of Model S to European customers started in Norway earlier this month.
