Tesla has agreed to compensate the Norwegians for the slow acceleration

Tesla согласилась на компенсации норвежцам за медленный разгон

Tesla customers in Norway found that the car accelerates too slow

Tesla agreed to pay 7.7 thousand dollars each dissatisfied client.

American car company Tesla entered into a settlement agreement with 126 clients in Norway, who were dissatisfied with the rate of acceleration of an electric car Model S P85D. The lawyer of the owners of the vehicles transferred to the district court of Oslo a joint letter, which refers to the withdrawal of the lawsuit against Tesla.

Court session on this case was to begin Monday, December 12.

The Norwegian newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv reported that Tesla has agreed to pay for 65 thousand Norwegian kroner (7.7 million dollars) for each dissatisfied customer. Earlier the car owners demanded the company of 129.7 thousand crowns.

According to the newspaper, in addition to monetary compensation, Tesla has provided customers and bonuses – for example, a loan on favorable terms, or various kinds of car tuning.

The lawsuit unhappy with Norwegian clients became known at the end of September. In the electric vehicle, the Model S P85D is provided “insane mode” in which the car should accelerate to 100 km an hour in only 3.1-3.3 seconds. Norwegian buyers argue that in “insane mode” the car does not accelerate as fast.

Many customers complained that they bought a car for the “insane mode” and high power, but the real performance of the car did not meet their expectations.

Norway has become one of the biggest markets for Tesla. This is partly due to subsidies from the government for the purchase of electric vehicles. Model S P85D is no longer sold in Norway, it was replaced by the Model S P90D.

Previously, Tesla showed in the video how the autopilot operates in the electric car.
