I'm not a fan of Tesla but I have to give Elon credit for doing what all the other big car manufactures refused to do which was develop full electric car and basically give big oil the middle finger.

When you live in a city where gas price is 2dollar a litre, this is why so many people want one.

The model 3 is the same price as a 1.4L Golf in my city, plus the gas saving = win

It makes total sense to have a Tesla in HK, but do you own your own house by any chance? I would assume its a pain in the ass for those living in apartments since not all spots will have access to chargers

There are 3500 model S in HK and 7 supercharging stations and tons of quick chargers around town, supercharging takes 1hr from 10% to 90%.

There are contractors that will install a Tesla quick charger right beside ur parking stall for about 3grand, assume you own the spot with cover and your strata has no objection.

Or... you plug ur car to a regular power outlet, it takes 40hrs lol

No incentive... but you dont need to pay 1st time registration tax, that's almost 100% of a gasoline car price.

So a model S P70D is roughly around the price of a Mercedes E200 or BMW 328i

We have low income tax, no sales tax, currency is tied with USD, and a lot of financial jobs to choose.

I'm honestly thinking about dropping by Tesla tomorrow for a deposit before a meeting in the area.

It's fully refundable... so if I don't like what I see, I take it back. If I don't like it enough, and someone else is, I might be able to make a few bucks for the trouble and finally if I like what I see, I'd be one of the first in NA to roll on it (Tesla stated shipments starts on West Coast for all preorders).

What's there to lose? Opportunity cost on 1000CAD? (minus the points on credit card)?

Yeah, I saw the line up on Robson this evening. Reminded me of a Saturday Jordan release. Let the hype begin.

My family recently purchased a P90D in Hong Kong (at the exact location you are at) The pricing is so damn cheap even compared to Vancouver..... The BC government should really give better incentives than the 5000$ they offer here.... The P85D I ordered prior came up to way too expensive.... So I bought something else instead =/

They're saying the Model 3 may take till 2019, lol. I'm hoping that by then, some of the other car manufacturers will get their shit together and join in.
