Tesla is taking European orders for Model S and X again

Tesla has confirmed the relaunch of the Model S and Model X in Europe, which will be limited to the Plaid versions to begin with. Orders for the Plaid versions are being accepted now, with the first deliveries announced for November or December 2022.

The Model S Plaid, which was introduced during the "refresh" of the two large model series in early 2021, is now expected to cost at least 137,990 euros in Europe. The Model X Plaid is listed in the Tesla configurator for at least 140,990 euros. In both cases, the vehicles are painted white with the respective smaller rims (Model S: 19 inches, Model X: 20 inches). Other paint finishes cost between 1,800 and 2,200 euros extra, and the respective two-inch larger rims cost 4,900 and 5,900 euros more.

Inside, the standard version is black, while the white or cream options cost €2,400. In the case of the Model X, it's worth noting that the German configurator currently only lists the six-seat version, with prices for the two Autopilot options, Enhanced Autopilot and Full Potential for Autonomous Driving, costing €3,800 and €7,500 more respectively, as with the Model 3/Y.

Unlike the Model 3/Y, the predicted delivery time doesn't change if you order the base model or optional extras - the ad remains at "December 2022 - February 2023." Other versions of the redesigned Model S and Model X are expected to follow next year.

Tesla had started the first deliveries to US customers after the aforementioned unveiling of the revamped versions of the Model S and Model X in June (Model S) and October (Model X), respectively. However, that delivery start went bumpy and delays were still occurring.
