Just a month after Tesla announced setting up a service centre in Toa Payoh, the firm has finally delivered its first few Model 3s here in Singapore.
On Thursday morning (29 July 2021), the delivery of the Tesla Model 3s began at Tesla's almost finished-up service centre at Toa Payoh Lorong 8, formerly occupied by Tan Chong Motor's Nissan dealership.
The first pool of customers collected their Model 3, five months after the American electric-car maker opened its sales portal. As reported in The Straits Times, only a handful were collected, however, there will be more over the next few days.
