Tesla to bring Model 3 on tour in Australia and New Zealand soon
According to reports, US electric vehicle maker Tesla Motors has plans underway to expand the availability of its Model 3 electric car outside North American market in the coming months.
The reported move planned by Tesla is noteworthy, especially because it hints at the forthcoming international launch of Model 3. At present, the deliveries of the vehicle -- which hit production more than a year back -- are limited only to the US and Canada.
With Tesla already planning its Model 3 international expansion in early 2019, it is now being reported that the automaker will soon bring the Model 3 on tour in Australia and New Zealand. A few weeks back, the Model 3 was officially brought to Europe by Tesla for the first time.
During the upcoming tour of the Model 3 in Australia and New Zealand, Tesla will seemingly put the vehicle on display for reservation holders as well as for the public, at different store venues across the two countries.
Towards that end, Tesla has already sent official invites, via emails, to Model 3 reservation holders in Australia and New Zealand, to take a look at the vehicle at the stores. In its email, Tesla has clearly said: “As a Model 3 reservation holder, we are excited to invite you and one guest for an exclusive first look at Model 3 before we open to the public.”
