Tesla Motors has been expanding rapidly in the U.S. and now the company is getting ready to make a major push in Europe. Speaking at the Geneva Auto Show on Tuesday the company announced plans to open 30 new service centers and stores while also beefing up its Supercharger network.
“By the end of this year, we expect you will be able to travel almost anywhere in Europe using only Superchargers,” said CEO Elon Musk.
The company also took the opportunity to reveal its latest sales figures and projections. Last year Tesla says it delivered 22,477 vehicles around the world. In 2014, Musk expects sales in Europe and Asia combined to total roughly double what the company sold in North America this year. Tesla also plans to launch a U.K. variant of its popular Model S with the steering wheel on the right side in the near future.
Beyond sales, Tesla notes it’s also built up a stellar reputation in Europe. The Model S was named Car of the Year in both Sweden and Norway for 2013 as well as Most Stylish Car in Switzerland. We’ve been keeping a close eye on the upstart car-maker ourselves, especially after learning that Elon Musk recently met with Apple for a top-secret discussion.
