Tesla pfee in Zimbabwe

Tesla pfee in Zimbabwe
Published: 20 October 2018 (430 Views)
Among the many vehicles Zimbabweans have been importing is the country's first Tesla electric vehicle, a model X automobile that has sparked debates on social media.

Zimbabweans have taken to Twitter and Facebook to describe the sleek electric vehicle as a solution to the country's petrol and diesel shortages.



The vehicle, with an estimated cost of about $75 000, boasts of a high powered engine. Pictures of the vehicle have gone viral in Zimbabwe, bringing memories of a Bugatti Veyron with an approximate cost of $2 million which was recently imported into Zimbabwe for registration by South African businessman, Frank Buyanga.

The sight of an electric car in Zimbabwe has caused a stir on social media, as fuel shortages cause agony for many.

Ironically, the white saloon is pictured on the back of a recovery vehicle, but that didn't stop Zimbabweans being in awe of a car that can skip the long queues for petrol and diesel that resurfaced this month.

Commenting on the Tesla, former education minister David Coltart asked where in foreign-currency starved Zimbabwe the money was found to import a car when others can't find foreign currency to buy medicine for their children.

"I suppose at least it wasn't a Bugatti," he tweeted.
