Tesla has officially opened up its website for orders in Croatia, the home country of the automaker’s namesake, Nikola Tesla.
In September 2019, CEO Elon Musk said he hoped to have the first location in Croatia open by early 2020. Despite being a little late, the first job postings for a Sales & Delivery Manager and Tesla Advisor in Zagreb, Croatia were published in September 2020.
Now just a few months later, Tesla has added an order page for Croatian customers, with the first Model 3 deliveries expected as early as February 2021.
The Standard Range Plus (SR+) Model 3 starts at 319,990 kn ($65,700 CAD). The Long Range starts at 399,990 kn ($82,100 CAD), while the Performance variant starts at 449,990 kn ($92,400 CAD).
When you add in the 75,000 kn government incentive, along with not having to pay the annual vehicle registration tax in the country, the Model 3 looks like it will be an attractive option.
Croatian Tesla hopefuls can also order the Model S and Model X, which are both expected to start arriving in March 2021. The Model Y is not yet available for pre-order.
According to u/Radio_Marija on Reddit, the automaker also opened a pop-up store in the country, but provided no further details on its location.
