Last year, Tesla delivered 22,477 vehicles to customers worldwide and expects that by the end of this year, its combined sales in Europe and Asia will be almost twice as high as sales in North America alone. Right-hand-drive versions of the Tesla Model S is expected to arrive in the UK shortly, which is part of the automaker’s projected growth in Europe.

“By the end of this year, we expect you will be able to travel almost anywhere in Europe using only Superchargers,” said Tesla co-founder and CEO Elon Musk.
