"As Europe's first owner of the Tesla Model S, I am very proud to be a pioneer with absolutely no risk. (...) I have waited long and been frustrated at times, but it means nothing anymore, now that I've got my own Model S. This car is a ‘gamechanger’ in terms of transport, energy and the environment. For me as environmentalist, this is a great day,” said Hauge, who was also the owner of the first electric vehicle imported into Norway in 1989.

Tesla also revealed that new Model S event deliveries for customers are planned later this month in Zurich (Switzerland) and Tilburg (the Netherlands).

According to the company, Model S pricing starts at NOK446,600 in the Scandinavian country, which means about €56,722 at current exchange rates.
