PALO ALTO, CA – Tesla Motors has been revving up for June 22, when it will begin customer deliveries and webcast the actual delivery ceremony on teslamotors.com.
According to George Blankenship, vice president of worldwide sales and ownership experience, Tesla will continue to hold Model S events in other areas during the countdown to June 22nd.
The manufacturer recently held a “Signature - Four Color” event at Tesla Fashion Island in Newport Beach, Calif., which was the second time it had four Model S Beta cars, in all four Signature colors, on display at a Tesla retail store. Tesla also opened its first “new design” store on the East Coast at The Westchester in White Plains, N.Y.
In addition, the automaker launched a five-city Model S Beta tour through Canada. After first stopping in Ottawa and Laval, Quebec, the Signature Red Model S Beta stopped off in Etobicoke, Ontario, before moving on to Calgary and Vancouver in June.
Model S updates include adjustable regenerative braking (to suit each driving style) on the Model S Regen, adjustable steering, personalized suspension, and improved range and efficiency, according to the manufacturer.
