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.

Saleen FourSixteen: Tesla’s All-American Model S EV Gets the All-American Tuner Touch

Aug 19 2014 12:16pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

From hot-rodded Mustangs to the S7 supercar, Steve Saleen made a name wringing horsepower out of eight-cylinder Ford engines. His eponymous firm’s latest creation, though, is something different. And after a lengthy gestation, the Saleen FourSixteen, a modified Tesla Model S, has finally made its debut at Pebble Beach. RELATED: The 2015 Saleen S302 Mustang looks wicked The car’s quoted output of 416 hp remains unchanged from ...

Tesla Offers an Infinite-Mile Warranty for the Model S

Aug 19 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: Top Speed

While buying a Tesla Model S requires customers to fork out at least $69,000, owning one is more than affordable, given the fact that you don’t have to visit the gas station unless you need a sandwich and a soda. As of August 2014, current and future owners have one more reason to be happy with their all-electric sedan, as Tesla has extended the drive unit warranty for the 85 kWh sedan to match that of the battery back. Specifically ...

Lotus spotted testing more extreme Elise on the Nordschleife

Aug 19 2014 10:38am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Spy Photos, Convertible, Performance, Lotus If we had a nickel for every version of the Elise that Lotus has rolled out over the years, we might actually have enough spare change to buy one ourselves. And we're not even talking about the entire separate models (like the Exige and Europa) that Lotus has based on the Elise's platform or the other automakers' cars (like the Tesla Roadster and Hennessey Venom GT) that have used the same. And now Lotus ...

Tesla Expands Eight-Year, “Infinite-Mile” Model S Battery Warranty to EV’s Powertrain

Aug 19 2014 9:15am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Everyone knows there’s no coming back from the “infinite dog dare” schoolyard taunt—once it’s said, whoever it was aimed at is in for an existential review of their morals, danger comprehension, and whether their tongue actually will stick to that frozen flagpole. Someone, perhaps Tesla Motors’ marketing folks, levied a similar reproach to CEO Elon Musk, because he has just introduced some next-level warranty news for Model S ...
