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.

Tesla Model S Hackathon in China Turns Up Nothing More Sinister than Parlor Tricks

Jul 21 2014 12:44pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Bloomberg Breakfast - 2014 Tribeca Film Festival
When news came recently of a conference in China dedicated to the hacking of a Tesla Model S, we were intrigued. After all, with the increasing connectivity of modern vehicles—to say nothing of a fully electric ride like the Model S—the threat of hackers somehow breaking into a car’s brain is mildly concerning. We’ve even devoted some space to the topic of hacking a car, especially given the loose security of many aut ...

Jul 21 2014 10:34am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Member of the Boa
True to its intentions of becoming a Tesla fighter, Audi is reportedly working on an e-tron variant of the A8 sedan due out next year. Britain’s AutoExpress says the German automaker will be adding a second model to its e-tron lineup based on the A8 sedan. The formula will be similar to the A3 e-tron hatchback we drove recently, but the A8 e-tron will be powered by the automaker’s new 3.0-litre diesel V6 engine and paired to an electric motor. Audi technical development chief Dr. Ulrich Hack ...
