Tesla’s electric car shipments keep getting stopped or even shut down in Norway, for using dangerous transporters, which do not conform to Norwegian transport rules. One of the trucks has even crashed and the EV maker is facing a tough decision.
To deliver or to delay is the question for Tesla when it comes to Norway. Normally Tesla ships through the port of Drammen, but due to capacity issues, it has had to move to Gothenburg harbour in Sweden to supply its Norwegian customers.
The added pressure has apparently cut short some of the safety precautions, which the Norwegians are not happy about. In response, Musk has ordered to slow shipments, as “Customer happiness & safety matter more than a few extra cars this quarter.”
