Tesla Motors and 126 of its Norwegian customers have reached an out-of-court settlement to avoid litigation concerning the automaker’s Model S sedan.
Represented by Oslo-based law firm Wikborg Rein, the car owners maintained that the performance of the Model S P85D did not meet the company’s marketing claims. For its part, Tesla countered that it had not set out to deceive buyers.
Terms of the settlement were not made public but Norwegian newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv indicated in its Sunday edition that Tesla agreed to pay owners $7,700 or provide alternative options for compensation in the form of upgrades.
According to the Norwegian Road Traffic Information Council, Tesla sales have dropped 24 percent in the country through November 2016 compared to the same period a year ago.
