126 Norwegian's Are Suing Tesla Because Their Cars Don't Live Up To Expectations

Via Business Insider:

The Norwegian car market has the highest percentage of electric car sales in the world. Generous subsidies make even Tesla's affordable for many, but not all Norwegian's are satisfied with their purchases, and are seeking reimbursement.

126 Tesla-owners from Norway are uniting in a lawsuit against Tesla Motors on the claim that Tesla has falsely represented the performance of their cars. The claim concerns the upgraded model of the Model S sedan P85D, Bloomberg reports.

According to Tesla the car is able to accelerate from 0 km/h to 100 km/h in 3.1 to 3.3 seconds in tests, but that is incorrect in the car-owner's exerience. The proposed reason is that the model's engine simply lacks the required amount of horsepower.

The case will be addressed in court in December.
