    Thought it might be fun to post a thread, and keep a track of, Hong Kong EV numbers (particularly as they change over time).

    As at end of 2013, there are 592 EVs in use, up from 74 in end 2010 and 242 in end 2011.

    I got a response from the EPD regarding a breakdown of recent figures, and here is where we are at the end of 2013:


























    EVs in Hong Kong - December 2013 Number
    Electric passenger cars 458
    Electric motorcycles 56
    Electric light goods vehicles 34
    Electric medium goods vehicles 2
    Electric light buses 5
    Electric taxis 33
    Electric buses 4
    And, finally, a useful link to show EV status in Hong Kong:

    If the Hong Kong government also had these figures and it is aware that there are sit 400 Model S coming to Hong Kong, I cannot imagine why they do not want to extend FRT waiver for
    Pure EVs. It is a great chance to gain impression points for the government.
