Tesla Settles Lawsuit In Norway, After Drivers Claimed P85D Delivered 469HP Instead Of 691HP

#Tesla Motors has reached an out-of-court settlement with the 126 Norwegian customers who claimed their vehicles delivered 469 HP (475 PS) instead of the official 691 HP (700 PS).

Lawyers for the owners and Tesla's own litigators stated that they wanted to withdraw the case in a joint letter to the Oslo District Court, a case that was due to start on Monday.

Oslo-based lawyer Kaspar Nygaard Thommessen of Wikborg Rein said that the settlement had been reached recently and that the case had been resolved, though declined to provide more details.

According to Autonews, Norwegian business newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv said that the automaker had agreed to pay 65,000 Norwegian crowns ($7,700) to each car owner, which was about half of what they demanded. Tesla is also open to allowing said customers to choose from alternative options, including car upgrades.

As previously reported, the case involved Tesla's Model S P85D, a car that the owners said had a lower horsepower figure than the one stated by Tesla, though the EV-maker denied trying to mislead the buyers.

Norway remains one of the world's top markets for electric cars due to generous government subsidies.
