Tesla Receives Hundreds of Orders for Model S in Hong Kong

Jul 5 2013, 1:00pm CDT | by

Official pricing for Hong Kong hasn't been announced

Tesla believes that it may single-handedly double the number of electric cars on the roads in Hong Kong. Tesla has announced that it has received hundreds of orders for its new Model S sedan in Hong Kong. Currently Hong Kong has 303 private electric cars registered according to the city Transport Department.

Despite a number of orders for the vehicle, Tesla still hasn't announced the official price for the car Hong Kong. The vehicle will go on sale in Hong Kong this winter and pricing will be announced in the next couple months. Hong Kong is home to some very wealthy people and clearly price doesn't matter to some.

“Our number is over all electric cars in Hong Kong combined,” Kenneth Lui, Hong Kong sales manager for the Palo Alto, California-based company, said in an interview yesterday. Prices of the vehicle, which goes on sale in the city this winter, will be disclosed in the next couple of months, he said.

The way Google envisions a driverless future is at odds with automakers

Sep 15 2014 7:39am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Google, with its vision for a future where cars drive themselves, is putting itself at odds with an auto industry that shares its desire for safer, less-congested roads — yet won’t abide the “driverless” part. The clash pits the Internet giant, public for barely a decade, against companies that spent a century building the machines that put people behind the wheel of autos. As Google works to perfect a system in research labs and road tests to minimi ...

Hybrid Highway: Racers, start your batteries!

Sep 14 2014 10:46am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Veteran watchers of Formula 1 could be forgiven if they were fretfully cranking the volume on their TV remote at the start of the 2014 season. Gone was the guttural howl of the 2.4-litre V8 that underscored the violent velocity of the world’s most technologically advanced motorcars. In its place was a bassy, many argue subdued, drone of a 1.6-litre turbo V6. To the consternation of many F1 aficionados, it was akin to buying a ticket for an Ozzy Osbourne concert only to see Celine Dion walk ...
