Following last month’s news that Tesla plans for 100% Supercharger coverage across Europe, the electric carmaker’s Model 3 sedan is now approved for European roads.

Receiving the okay from RDW, a Dutch regulator and European authority tasked by Tesla to approve the vehicle for European roads, the Model 3’s European entrance comes at a rather dire time. The car manufacturer recently announced its plans to cut jobs and increase Supercharger pricing, while the White House cut the electric vehicle tax credit in half on January 1. And let’s not forget the array of electric vehicles slated to hit markets around the world, coming from heritage brands–and European natives–like Porsche and Audi.

The first batch of Model 3 sedans is expected to be delivered to European customers sometime next month, as reports state there’s already a cargo ship full of them currently en route to Zeebrugge, Belgium.

In other automotive news, Top Gear recently reviewed the Mercedes-AMG One Hypercar.
