In a recent email dispatched to the owners of Tesla vehicles in service in Norway, Tesla said that the company’s service team in Norway has received instructions from CEO Elon Musk to do “everything they can” to provide an outstanding service experience to Tesla customers in the country.
According to the email, the new service-focused initiatives which Tesla has launched in Norway include the expansion of the service team by 30% in 2018, extending the opening hours of selected service centers, starting new shifts at some service stations, and increasing the number of Mobile Service vehicles.
