Tesla Settles Norway Lawsuit Over Car's Performance

It looks as though Tesla has settled that lawsuit in Norway where owners were upset that their vehicles only produced 469 horsepower, not the claimed 700 horsepower. Tesla is paying each of the 120+ owners about $7,700.

Kaspar Nygaard Thommessen of Oslo-based law firm Wikborg Rein, who represented the car owners, told Reuters a settlement had been reached in recent days and the case had been resolved. Norwegian business newspaper Dagens Naeringsliv (DN) said on Sunday Tesla had agreed to pay 65,000 Norwegian crowns ($7,700) to each car owner, about half of what they demanded, or allow them to choose from alternative options, including car upgrades.
