American electric car maker Tesla has registered an Israeli subsidiary Tesla Motors Israel.
As reported by HEvCars, Tesla registered their "daughter company" two weeks ago. The reason for this are the rules governing the import of cars into Israel, which require that the importer be a company registered and licensed in the country.
According to records in the Israeli company registry, Tesla wants to work in the field of renewable energy, including implementation of solar energy, as well as work in the field of electric vehicle sales and maintenance.
It is said that Tesla made several steps in the last few months to enter the Israeli market, including, negotiations with charging station companies to deploy their own charging network in Israel.
It is noted that the head office of the company is likely to be located in Tel Aviv, and the Israeli branch will belong to a European unit.
