Tesla To Open European Distribution Center

As Tesla grows, so does its need for a proper business infrastructure. With this in mind, the American EV company is opening a European Distribution Center in Tilburg, Netherlands.

Qualified by Tesla as a key step toward beginning worldwide distribution of Model S, Tesla Motors announced that it will begin operations this month at this new European Distribution Center.

This new facility will serve as Tesla’s European service and parts headquarters, as well as the final assembly and distribution point for Model S vehicles sold in Europe.

Tesla confirmed general production of European left-hand drive Model S is still planned to begin in March 2013.

Tesla’s new European 62,000 square foot facility is centrally located to enable efficient, timely and cost effective operations throughout Europe.

Starting this month, the distribution center will begin stocking parts for both the Tesla Roadster and Model S. In addition to parts warehousing, Tesla plans to utilize this facility for vehicle importing operations, final vehicle assembly and distribution, service headquarters, technical training operations, parts remanufacturing, collision repair and more.

Tesla says its decision to locate the new European Distribution Center in Tilburg is the result of almost two years of on-going cooperation between Tesla, BOM Foreign Investments, NFIA (Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency), CBRE Group, Inc. and the City of Tilburg.

Worldwide, Tesla has received more than 13,000 reservations for its Model S.
