Tesla hong kong Stories May 19

As we reported earlier this month, Tesla saw important increases in deliveries in the Chinese and Hong Kong markets, which seem to have made the difference for Tesla during the quarter – its biggest ever for deliveries.

In Hong Kong, it was partly because buyers rushed to buy EVs before the aggressive phaseout of its tax exemption for electric vehicles starting in April.

A new report now suggests that buyers were not the only people registering Tesla vehicles before the end of the tax exemption, which can almost double the price of a Model S or Model X, but that Tesla could also have registered hundreds of vehicles. expand full story

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has described Hong Kong as a “beacon city for electric vehicles” due to its fast growth in EV adoption, which Tesla is a big part of since the company had an impressive 80% market share of Hong Kong’s 5,800 EVs as of this July.

As we reported earlier this month, Tesla President Jon McNeill traveled to Hong Kong to lead talks with the local government in order to extend the tax break for electric vehicles which allowed the global city to become one of the world’s biggest per-capita markets for electric cars.

As you may remember, Denmark announced the phasing out of its tax break for electric vehicles by the end of 2015, which caused Tesla’s sales to surge to an all-time high in the country, but they have been virtually non-existent since then. We are talking about going from over 1,000 vehicles delivered in December 2015 to about 100 vehicles delivered throughout the entire year so far.

Now Tesla fears a similar situation in Hong Kong, a very important market for the company, and Tesla President Jon McNeill is currently in the global city to lead talks with the government in order to extend the tax break for EVs and maintain Hong Kong status as a “beacon city” for electric vehicles. expand full story

After Tesla introduced its Autopilot update (7.0) with the ‘Autosteer’ and ‘Auto Lane Change’ features for Model S in October last year, the automaker had to quickly rollback and disable the features for owners in Hong Kong after a formal request from regulators at the Transport Department.

It took about 5 months for Tesla and the regulators to sort it out and reintroduce the features to Model S owners in Hong Kong. Now the Transport Department is at it again and in a very strange move, it forced Tesla to rollback its Calendar app in its vehicles. expand full story
