    So the rumour was true - there is no option for selecting 5+2 seats for the Model S, and the main page on Teslamotors.com says "5 Available seating" on top of the picture of the Model S when you select Hong Kong as the region. Only a few days ago when I checked - before the HK prices were released - it still said "5+2 Available Seating"

    Model S | Tesla Motors

    Was this due to HK local laws, or is it Tesla Motors that decided this option is just not going to be offered in Hong Kong?

    I really don't need it on a daily basis, but it would have been nice to be able to haul more persons, as needed.

    I am taking a wild guess, but it couldn't pass the EMSD simply because the rear facing seats didn't come with 3 points seat belt.
