"Today I participated in the so-called 'Red vests action against Tesla' at the Factory & in Tilburg," the Electrek quoted one of he protesters as saying on Monday.

"Together with 10 other Model 3 owners from the and Belgium, and with interest from the media, we have tried to get attention in a positive way with the aim of motivating to fulfill its agreements and to get long-paid AP & FSD functions activated."

The owner who was quoted claimed that the EV maker reduced the price of his Model 3 configuration by 5 per cent just a few hours after he ordered it.

The protesters organised the protest at the factory and 11 Tesla owners joined in.

At the time, it was mostly about the Model S and Model X price drop.
