As is the case with almost all of the news from the electric car company recently, Tesla Motors is rolling out the new Netherlands digs in preparation of its Model S hitting the market in late 2012. We recently covered news of the manufacturer’s new Beta model, as well as its plans to discontinue the sportier Roadster design.
