    Hi Everyone,

    does anyone know if it's possible to get dual plates fitted to a Model S for cross border driving? I've asked Tesla and they don't know what happens to the cars after they've been bought - fair enough. So perhaps someone here either has done it, or knows of someone else who's done it?

    This is the remaining obstacle to buying one so I hope someone has good news!


    Cheers

    Check out the transport department website, they will have all the info on that.

    I don't see any problem getting dual plates. You might have a hard time charging you Tesla. I got plates for my diesel Q7 but the problem no ULSD in China. I need to bring a 30 liter tank for long trips.

    Impatient Chinese Tesla owner decides to build his own charging stations - CNET

    Maybe he can find out where this business man is installing the 20 charging stations. He's considering hotels, so it seems like it could be open for other Tesla owners. Although these are not superchargers.


    According to this, the charging stations are built already:

    Charging, at least in Shenzhen, shouldn't be an issue. There's a Supercharger already apparently: Shenzhen Supercharger | Tesla Motors

    I like the optimism that people think it will be easy to do, but until I see someone else has gone through the inevitable bureaucracy I'm not too sure. The HK transport department website don't seem to say much on the topic, as it's the Guangdong Public Security Bureau that need to approve the car. In theory it should be easy... but I'd still like to see that someone else has done it successfully before trying.
