There are 20 people signed up already (9 cars). Target was initially 30, but we will extend to maximum 50 participants for practical reasons.

Emails with more information, including location details and payment, will be going out shortly to those that signed up.

12 cars, 24 people now. Better not get all the way to 50 but for sure, still room for more cars and participants.

We need to find one of the very rare green Model S in Hong Kong, then we will have a full line-up of colours (lest the various iterations of gray, white and red)

Brown
Silver
Gray
Gray Thunder (Roadster)

Blue
Black

2 x Red Sig
2 x Red
2 x White

My daughter just told me that she spotted a green one near home(Cloudview Road) this afternoon.

If you get a hold of them, please ask them if they like to join.

Having said that, we are already overbooked so as the deadline is less than 12 hours away, we can't really take (m)any more.

There are now 24 cars signed up, 59 persons (including kids and babies), all Model S except 1 Roadster and 1 BMW i3. No Leafs, Fluence, Zero or Segway EVs enlisted! And no i8 - that would have been creating interest though.

7 white, 6 red, 5 gray, 2 black and 1 of each of silver, brown and blue. Plus the BMW i3.

BUT NO GREEN!

Oh the irony, that a "green" auto maker don't sell a car that is ... ehm ... green!

Things will be easier once the organisation is established. At the moment, it is just individual people organising these things, and it is scary to make such a commitment (not to mention a huge personal investment in time). Thanks to Core for putting this one together.

1) it is a coincidence
2) Tesla knew about Core's event
3) The Gold Coast people think that Core is from Tesla and that two events are actually one.

The last possibility will be quite scary

Apart from within our community, this is just a group of people having lunch - who happen to have a common interest in electric vehicles.

Neither of us knew of the other event. I decided it was time to gather the troops, and looked ahead a few weeks to find a Sunday I wasn't working myself. 25th was open, and so it went.

As I asked around if there was any interest for the club to take advantage of our presence to make it "EV day", I was kindly informed that Tesla Motors were having their own "event" the same day (and the day before, and the weekend after). I hadn't heard about it and looked on the website and sure enough - it was listed there under events (as shown above). There wasn't really any interest or support to brand this coming Sunday as "EV day", unfortunately. I do hope though, that some people will notice us and come have a chat about EVs in Hong Kong.

What better way than to ask people who own the cars, rather than sales people?

So that would be "possibility 1)" to the list lx3h came up with.
