    Charged.HK - join our common voice for Plug-In vehicles (HONG KONG only!)

    I accidentally joined as Associate and wished to change back to Ordinary but system didn't let me. Mark, Core, any ways to 'rejoin'?

    Purchasing Dilemma

    +1 In terms of luxury (especially interior comfort and build quality), the 2015/16 C or E definitely wins over the Model S. The Model S is also less agile as it's pretty big and the turning radius is not as sharp as other European or Japanese cars. There are certain things you have to sacrifice...

    [On-Going] Model S-friendly & Best Car Park List

    Locky, just realised the Car Park list is missing the Star Ferry Multi-storey and the City Hall Multi-storey. According to E-charge map, SF has 38x13A, 8xType2 and 1xCHAdeMO; CH has 30x13A and 6xType2. By the way, I want to know whether the City Hall Multi-storey car park is open and...

    [On-Going] Model S-friendly & Best Car Park List

    Oh didn't realise Royal View Hotel now has it. Was there some months ago and it had nothing. Glad they have it now as I live nearby. The car park entrance is damn narrow though, I think I almost had to retract my side mirrors to squeeze in/out haha

    [On-Going] Model S-friendly & Best Car Park List

    Rumsey Street Multi-story Car Park in Sheung Wan and Tsuen Wan Multi-story car park are not bad. Both got quite a few 32A chargers and EV spots are coned off. Although that doesn't stop some desperate ICE car drivers to occupy them.

    How to disable the seat belt warning chimes

    Ok thanks guys for your emotional input lol - - - Updated - - - Yea. Some of the indoor car parks in HK are very narrow with lots of cars and obstacles so sometimes you need to look out from the window and constantly check the space. Often it is difficult to find a space right away so you...

    How to disable the seat belt warning chimes

    Not always do passengers sitting in the rear seats need to buckle up. But chimes just don't stop and can really be an annoyance to everyone. Any one figured out how to disable that? Thanks.

    SuperCharger Issues

    Getting my car tomorrow. Perhaps after such a long wait I've already lost the time awareness and the excitement I used to have previously. Hopefully that will change when I get behind the wheel, for good :) I feel a bit worried about the SC issues you guys have been experiencing recently. The...

    Hong Kong Navigation

    Actually I think most locals don't use any as we pretty much know our ways in HK, but for those who use one for traffic info etc. I know a lot of people tend to use AutoNavi.

    Japan

    Seems it'll be an exciting launch for you guys in Japan, hiroshiy! I still remember visiting the Mori Museum and the superb TCV deck in Toyko many years ago in a bright summer day! The panoramic view of Tokyo is truly breathtaking. Elon didn't come to HK, I guess spending time in Japan makes...

    Charger solution on private car parking space

    I just noticed Tesla has updated yesterday several documents on the Model S Guides page. One of them I think is of importance to those of us who may have difficulties convincing their estate management and installing the Wall Connector at their private/rented parking space. As we know...

    DITB, how can you be so sure that all the problems and delays are due to the Chinese customs and China as a whole, without concrete evidence and details of the matter? What makes you hate my country so much? I feel puzzled at times that when we export to some other big western markets like the...

    What a revelation. Actually I'm curious to know whether Tesla HK is under the leadership of Veronica Wu (now GM of Tesla China), despite the fact that HK is RHD and has a separate customs. But whatever the answer, Tesla does have some major issues operating on a satisfying level in this part of...

    Thank god they finally sent me the confirmation email. Nothing worked until I wrote to Linda this morning and she replied in an hour or so and at the same time I received the confirmation email from a HK staff called Ernest. Linda is a star! Gotta love her!

    Group Buy~

    Actually I might want a set of the lowering links but I don't know how low is 'low' on the Model S air suspension setting and whether I'll be able to keep it at 'low' all the time at any speed. I think I'll check that out tomorrow at the event first. Hope they have some demo cars there for us to...

    HK: Model S Deposit date - confirmation - Sequence # - expected delivery

    Strange on My Dashboard page, the name above the VIN on the left side has been changed back to "Model S" instead of my customised "CCT". As for status-wise, of course it's still "sourcing parts". No news on my Wall Connector either, no nothing...

    HK: Model S Deposit date - confirmation - Sequence # - expected delivery

    I would venture to think that that particular staff whom Alipapa had a bad conversation with regarding delivery order has not been thoroughly briefed by Tesla HK and he miscommunicated. I speculate that what he meant was if a particular car is being held back by TD or for whatever reason, it...

    EV friendly housing

    Yea Fairview Park might fit your criteria, DITB, if you don't mind its distance away from the airport and Kowloon/HK Island. That being said, it's only half an hour or so anyway if driving.

    Where Would You Suggest Tesla To Build Their Supercharging Stations In Hong Kong?

    I think there's a startup in the US which created an app that allows you to ask the occupant to unlock the charge port remotely so you can unplug his and charge your EV. I can't remember the name... Should be somewhere on the US forums.

    Excellent finds, jh! Superchargers in HK are just very important for those who have problems installing wall chargers at their estate parkings, myself included.

    No delivery on 24th =_=

    Some of us really should get a part-time job at Tesla HK to straighten them out haha. I believe many of us here are more knowledgeable (about Tesla, the Model S and EVs) than some fresh grad newbies, and certainly VERY passionate. Should get hired straightaway by Tesla HK if you have the time to...

    Where Would You Suggest Tesla To Build Their Supercharging Stations In Hong Kong?

    Went to check out the new Tesla den in Tsuen Wan after midnight. Some contractors are working at it inside, as I heard drilling noises etc. From the front window of the service centre, I could see at least two Superchargers inside: Taken with my phone, very sorry for the reflections off the...

    Just read that same piece from Chinese sources too. RMB1.5m (double Model S price in mainland) for 16 EVSEs makes it a little under 100k each to build. If many medium to large businesses, especially hotels or hostels, can see this as a worthwhile investment which potentially attracts customers...

    HK: Model S Deposit date - confirmation - Sequence # - expected delivery

    Definitely mate. However, comparing to HK I feel Taiwan and Japan are even better in terms of services i.e. people are more friendly and polite (for real) and do actually try to help you out. Though HK has traditionally been way more efficient...but it's probably slipped nowadays :( I echo what...

    Registering the name legally in order to profit isn't a crime per se. The guy played dirty and speculated and is asking for too much money. That's unethical, but it's not a crime. That's why he's unsuccessful in his demand and the mediation is ongoing. Tesla continues to do business on the...

    Where Would You Suggest Tesla To Build Their Supercharging Stations In Hong Kong?

    Nice photos, Lerxt. The car park at TML is fairly large and currently rather empty since over 60 percent of the offices are still vacant. I honestly wonder if Tesla has made some deals with the Tower so that they can utilise it to temporarily store some of the cars and potentially built...

    Any chance of seeing a Model S in HK this weekend?

    So you did manage to come to their Tsuen Wan centre? Welcome! (I'm a resident in the area haha) Not sure you noticed, Tesla actually are opening another gallery literally two streets behind the existing service centre at a new commercial building. Have fun driving your Tesla in Chicago my friend.

    Place your bets: When will the first Sigs be delivered in Hong Kong?

    Good to hear, Applefan. Are you able to install your wall connector at your parking lot? In my case, I can't yet, but still would like to have it and know that they're not slacking off and forgetting my order.

    Hiro-san, I think you meant 12k cars imported to Japan last year with price over $100k, right? (1001~2000万円: 11,051台 + 2,001万円以上: 1,135台) I believe Tesla will do well in general, but I also believe that it's only a matter of time Toyota, Honda and Nissan will come out with a compelling and much...

    Place your bets: When will the first Sigs be delivered in Hong Kong?

    Have you received your Wall Connector from them yet, DITB? No updates from Tesla for me whatsoever so really don't know what to expect. Until I know when exactly the car will be delivered to me, I can't proceed to renting a parking space just yet.

    Congrats my friend. Very jealous. From what I've heard from the Japan sub-forum, Elon won't go to Japan either, instead Jerome will go. I guess no visit to Asia again by Elon after China, let alone visiting Australia.
