After Tesla launched the sale of its flagship models in Thailand in December, the automaker has officially begun shipping its first vehicles to buyers.
Tesla began delivering its first Model 3 and Model Y units in Thailand on February 11, as spotted by @Tslachan on Sunday.
The post from Tslachan also shows photos of the primary Model Y units set to start delivering, including units in red, white and gray at a neighborhood distribution center. The photos appear to point out a celebration event with employees and onlookers, complete with a banner that reads “Thanks for accelerating the world’s transition to sustainable energy.”
The news comes just a couple of weeks after Tesla opened its first V3 Supercharger in Thailand, together with the preparation of the automaker’s first storefront, each situated in Bangkok.
Following Tesla’s launch in Thailand, the corporate quickly garnered around 5,000 reservations for Model 3 and Model Y units within the country.
Reports of Tesla debuting its electric vehicles (EVs) in Thailand began surfacing last May, after a filing showed that the corporate had registered a business within the country. Reports also included requests from Thailand’s government for Tesla to construct an EV factory within the country.
Tesla also began ramping up hiring in Thailand way back to September, ahead of the corporate’s official launch in December.
