Tesla has sold more than 25,000 of the five-door Model S Model S since its launch in the US two years ago. Now the company hopes to add a lot more vehicles to the list “across the pond” by introducing its first right-handed version in the UK, although there are no suprchargers there as yet. However, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has stated that he is working on plans that will enable Model S drivers there to “travel length of the United Kingdom one 20-minute top up mid-way within the next 18 months. In the meantime, they will be able to use existing third party chargers, with a Type 2 connection.”

Tesla does have 19 superchargers throughout other parts of Europe, which can currently give them a top-off charge for 170 miles in just a half hour, and a full charge in 70 minutes. In addition, Georg Ell, Tesla’s UK director noted that "The Model S will do 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds, as fast as a Lamborghini Gallardo ‘without the roar,’ powered by an engine the size of a lady's handbag."
