Tesla has be­gun ac­cept­ing on­line or­ders for Model S and Model X in the UAE, with cus­tomers now able to visit the on­line de­sign stu­dio to cus­tomise and or­der the ve­hi­cle that best suits their life­style.

The launch of the UAE’S ded­i­cated on­line plat­form is sup­ported by a pop-up store in The Dubai Mall, Tesla Ranger ser­vice and a ser­vice cen­tre now un­der con­struc­tion near In­ter­change Two of Sheikh Zayed Road, which will open in July.

With an in­dus­try lead­ing NEDC range of up to 632km, Tesla’s award-win­ning Model S is de­signed from the ground up to be the safest, most ex­hil­a­rat­ing car on the road. De­liv­er­ing un­par­al­leled per­for­mance through Tesla’s unique, all-elec­tric pow­er­train, the Model S ac­cel­er­ates from 0 to 100kph in just 2.7 sec­onds.

Mean­while, Tesla claim the Model X is the safest, fastest and most ca­pa­ble sport util­ity ve­hi­cle on the road. With stan­dard all-wheel drive and up to 565km of range on a sin­gle charge, the car in­cludes am­ple seat­ing for seven adults and all of their gear. It is also in­cred­i­bly fast, ac­cel­er­at­ing from zero to 100kph in as lit­tle as 3.1 sec­onds.

Tesla has also de­signed the most so­phis­ti­cated elec­tric ve­hi­cle charg­ing net­work in the world, the Su­per­charger and Des­ti­na­tion charg­ing net­work, so own­ers can travel wher­ever and when­ever they want. Tesla has opened two Su­per­charg­ing lo­ca­tions at The Last Exit in Jebel Ali and in Mas­dar City, al­low­ing driv­ers to recharge their ve­hi­cles in min­utes rather than hours.

By the end of the year, Tesla will open five ad­di­tional Su­per­charger lo­ca­tions, en­abling long dis­tance travel across ev­ery route into and out of the coun­try. The UAE is al­ready home to a num­ber of Tesla’s Des­ti­na­tion charg­ers, which are avail­able at 26 lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing ho­tels and shop­ping malls. Tesla will add more than 50 ad­di­tional Des­ti­na­tion charg­ing lo­ca­tions by the end of the year.

First or­ders of the ve­hi­cles are ex­pected to be de­liv­ered in Dubai this sum­mer. Prices start from AED 275,000 for Model S and AED 344,000 for Model X.
