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.
