The American concern finally began to fulfill its promises to supply its own “state employee” to Europe. Now the first shipment arrived from California in the Belgian port of Zeebrugge, the next one is expected in the coming days.

It is not reported yet, how many cars were delivered, the whole Europeans ordered at least 14,000 vehicles of this model. The leader in sales of Tesla cars and electric cars in general remains Norway. About 40% of all new cars in 2018 accounted for electrified vehicles (including plug-in hybrids).

 Recall that the Tesla Model 3 is the most affordable model in the company’s lineup. The presentation of the car was held in 2016, and since the opening of pre-orders causes a real stir. Despite the popularity of the model (about 400,000 pre-orders), the company constantly suffers losses.

Analysts again predict the bankruptcy of the company, and the value of shares over the past three months fell by 10%, and the total capitalization of the brand fell to 55.5 billion dollars.
