    Singapore changes its mind about BEV's

    between their rising sea levels and bad air (contributed by fires from Indonesia), i hope they wake up sooner rather than later.

    Singapore changes its mind about BEV's

    Once Criticized by Musk, Singapore Is Finally Welcoming Electric Cars "The government is planning to offer incentives to encourage the adoption of cleaner vehicles such as hybrids and electric cars, including rebates of up to S$20,000, and will invest to increase the number of electric charging...

    Rent a Tesla

    There are a handful of Model S for rent in Hong Kong on the Carousell app (Peer to peer bartering platform). Prices are pretty decent too.

    P3D- is absolutely ridiculous!

    Rented one on Turo in SF recently. Was an absolute blast to drive (and this was before the recent performance tweak)

    V10 in Hong Kong

    Even "dumb" summon would be pretty useful considering old parking space sizes are drawn to cater to car sizes of the 1970's in HK. iI smart summon and video streaming are off the table then V10 should be approved even faster, but i guess 1 month is pretty much lighting speed for TD. Perhaps HK...

    Google Map update?

    Doubt it will be addressed soon but you can try to report it as a bug and request it to be updated (hold down the voice command button on steering wheel). Software features should be fairly easy to rollout for Tesla. This (along with a lot of other things) could be stuck in some regulatory limbo...

    Normal for a 100D model X to have a range of 330km?

    My Terrible Ordeal with AXA Insurance Renewal

    If they are able to bring this to HK, it will likely also be possible they will create and run their own repair garage as an additional profit center. Would also mean that authorized 3rd party garages would have a lower priority when it comes to parts.

    Charging spaces are occupied leggally by non-electric vehicles in Hong Kong

    if time were not an constraint i'd park next to a pillar and block two cars in just to spite. typical hong kong behind on typical issues. there's the option to put up those ICE blocking metal rails but that's a pipe dream when the government is just shrugging their shoulders and saying "look we...

    Exciting new feature for anyone but HK...

    That's news to me. Good on them. But it sounds like a scenario ripe for malicious compliance abuse where certain spots could have the wiring built in but because of where its positioned or building management red tape, it's not allowed/ activated or purposely made impractical to hinder or...

    Exciting new feature for anyone but HK...

    Wouldn't this be better for consumers in Hong Kong? It will be considerable time until TD announces a timeline to implement revisions that cater to the 21st century (fingers crossed for before the end of the next decade). For the meantime, consumers can opt to just buy EAP since FSD wouldn't be...

    Google Maps - any way to get alternate route suggestions?

    When the big autos finally do it, it will somehow suddenly become kosher in the eyes of TD. or... despite big auto finally having it in their cars, they will just de-content it for HK market (of course our neighbors to the north will get it though, you know, to keep track of social brownie points)

    V9.0 update

    Strange that I got V9 for one X but not another (they are sequential VINs). V9 broke my Spotify though. No tesla account acknowledged. (anyone else experiencing this?). I got used to the new UX a lot quicker than I thought.

    My Terrible Ordeal with AXA Insurance Renewal

    Sounds like a "perfect storm" scenario (excuse the pun). Super dodgy. So across the board the only big losers are the consumers.

    My Terrible Ordeal with AXA Insurance Renewal

    Basically telling everyone in a very indirect (or direct) way that they can't afford your business. Killing FRT wavier probably contibuted to this as a lower volume of vehicles being sold in HK resulted in less or no economies of scale for the region (parts and labour got more expensive with...

    My Terrible Ordeal with AXA Insurance Renewal

    I have to say, AXA really dropped the ball on this. Intially they were quite confident about their Tesla exclusive programs. Now they have to go back on their offers. Really bad PR but not quite highway robbery (just need to look for a better competitor). Someone better be getting repremanded...

    Invitation to Tesla Hong Kong Special Event

    But at ~60% of the price it wasn't meant to compete with the S though (at least not intentionally). Interesting thought about it being an upgrade for early S owners (i never thought of it that way). Personally I could forgive the lack of a power trunk if it was spring actuated (but it isn't and...

    Sylvia Round Australia in Bluey !

    I just read about this today. Amazing story. While she says she wouldn't do it again, Sylvia doesn't look anywhere near 70. She looks like she could do it another 2-3 times easy.

    Resale Value Guarantee

    Thanks for the follow up and good to hear that Tesla held up their end of the deal. Would be cool if you offered the below details as it might help others as their own RVG comes up. What was the final mileage when you returned it? Did you have all your minimum servicing all inline? Why did you...

    Resale Value Guarantee

    To each his/ her own i guess. but there's just too much at stake against the stance of not having a tesla serviced at the minimum suggested schedule. Somthing breaks on a normal ICE, parts and labor are usually a plenty. Something breaks on a tesla and you're likely waiting for parts or...

    Open letter to Mrs Carrie Lam - Support for electric vehicles in Hong Kong

    Dang, China dropping the mic. Just read on wikipedia that it includes (PHEVs?) but there's gotta be an valid list of makers/ models/ price caps no? Porsche e-hybrid, Activehybrid, and even hyper cars come to mind.

    Unauthorized use of my HPWC...

    I'm assuming you own the HPWC and the accompanying electricity coming from there Step 1: Drill a 1cm hole in the plastic lip at the tip of the charging wand Step 2: Drill a 1cm hole in the corresponding place at the charging wand dock Step 3: Buy a nice thick padlock and lock the wand to the...

    Open letter to Mrs Carrie Lam - Support for electric vehicles in Hong Kong

    I've come to terms that these backwater, money grubbing fuel pawns get to dictate policy for a while longer. If they won't play nice then fine, the market will eventually transition to EV (behind everyone else in the world) But don't try and come off as Asia's world city or whatever especially...

    Shocked by the new Roadster rolling out of the Tesla Semi!

    No kidding. 10+ times the amount of torque as a hellcat engine at 0 rpm. The tires need be glued to the wheel and inflused with unicorn horn dust. I spit out the coffee i was drinking when I heard that torque number. MP Cup 2's hardly seem adequate for the acceleration this thing is capable...

    EV drivers protest

    A short slow drive protest will not have any affect. In fact, it could be seen as needlessly exacerbating the issue (crying about your first world problems etc). No one here acts until the problem comes right up to one's face. (insert Chinese proverb about not shedding tears until seeing the...

    Solar roof tiles

    Not specifically P.Wall or S. Roof related, but it's quite sad that the government here isn't making this a priority. HK is a small place so change should be (relatively) easier but because solar and EV's are the scary new things on the block no one wants to touch them with a 60ft pole. So...

    So glad RHD model 3 won't be until 2019

    I'm eager to see what pricing in other markets will be like. I hope they're able to undercut traditional ICE once again and shake up the local market like they did the pre-FRT days. Sadly i'm not optimistic. Think it'll start at around 400-450K and go to 600K for the P variant.
