They are coming, Tesla Model S is delivered in Europe and now with every new electric car turning heads on the streets electric revolution will be taking more and more hearts.
"For us here the only question left is when. We are following Lithium story for years and have our own ups and downs with the sector. Tesla Model S has taken the question about the viability of electric cars out of the market equation now - they are here to stay.
Now the only time is required for general public to realise that shale oil is the dead end and find out why China and Japan are securing the Lithium supply now. Way Of The Future came out with the great article putting Lithium Big Picture together."

It's been out in the U.S. for over a year now, but today marked the first delivery for a Telsa S on European soil.
The first 2013 Tesla Model S delivered in Europe rolled out of a Tesla Store in Norwegian capital Oslo, according to the Tesla Motors twitter feed.
Norway is Europe's most car-friendly country, with strong sales for models like the Nissan Leaf and a proliferation of public charging points around the country's cities.
In addition, electric in Norway are exempt from the country's hefty sales taxes, road tax fees, license fees and even parking fees--so buying and owning is even less expensive than in other electric-friendly areas.
The net result is savings of up to $8,200 per car every year--far greater than in most other countries.
Throw in short average commute times--typically under 30 minutes--and Norway is almost perfect for electric .
The bottom line? We've seen the first Model S roll onto Norway's streets, and it's likely to be the first of many.
