    Tesla releases Hong Kong pricing.

    HK$579,000 for a base 60kWh Model S.

    That is US$74,230 @7.8 rate, or about US$3,160 above US base price. Difference presumably covers shipping and slight changes to the spec for local homologation.

    Congrats, Tesla. That's a fair price.

    < Mod note: I know there is another thread started for this, but that is now full of speculation. I thought it best to start a new one now that the actual pricing has been released. Feel free to merge if you think otherwise. >

    - - - Updated - - -

    Back in December 2012, I estimated costs:

    Interesting to now see the actual prices:
    - 60kWh base: HK$579,000
    - Panaromic Sunroof: HK$19,400
    - Nappa Leather: HK$11,600
    - Tech Package: HK$29,100
    - Active Air Suspension: HK$17,500
    - Rear Facing Seats: (unavailable)
    for a total of HK$656,600.

    The difference is mostly taken up by transportation+homologation, plus the US price increases over the past year or so. For early reservation holders in Hong Kong, I seem to remember that we were offered a contra on that price increase, but need to look up and see how much and the other conditions on that.

    Very very competitive to BMW/Mercedes/etc, and a very fair price. Overall, I'm happy and the pricing may allow me to squeeze in a few options. It is interesting to see the supercharging option being offered here, and a commitment to rollout a supercharging network in Hong Kong.

    Overall, I am really happy about this. Now, all we need to do is ensure that the FRT waiver survives budget.

    Wow first Asian right hand drive pricing! For the S85 that comes to 100000.00 Australian dollars give or take! If it comes in at that price here, I will be a very happy camper!

    At this point, I think it is safe to assume that for Australia it is going to be +US$3,500 for shipping, then a reasonable exchange rate, plus taxes.

    Depends if you a gambling man.

    Last time they increased FRT, it was a mess and they ended up having to allow anyone who had ordered a car but not yet taken delivery to get the previous lower rate. But, that was a FRT increase. The situation for the waiver is clearer - it has a defined expiry date.

    Could there be anything related that Tesla wants us to confirm configuration and order by 23rd Feb, you think?

    I was told we had 'a few weeks' to confirm, not to delay delivery. I think US had a month or so.

    I don't think it is in Tesla's interest to get a load of confirmed orders and then have a bunch of people try to back out.

    I've just posted a captured image from my email in another post. I'm sharing it here again.

    I have pressed "Confirmed" and now I'm freaked, because if FRT isn't waived, I won't be able to afford this car.

    Did you just order today? Or go through the confirmation process for a previous registration? Signature or production?

    Can you share the reasons behind your configuration choices?

    P.S. Interesting piece from Ms Loh in today's scmp talking about roadside pollution and how government is doing so much to reduce it by 2020. Hard for them to cancel EV incentives while pushing that agenda.

    Ordered a few months ago, paid $39k deposit. Confirmed today by mistake as I thought it was to save my design. What is signature or production? Mine is a 60kWh. Wanted Rear Facing seats but not offered.

    In Hong Kong, packing sensors is a must, which inevitably requires tech package.

    Supercharger is for the future. No idea what Dual chargers can do, but I guess it isn't too expensive to have and it might be useful for standard 13A charging.

    Sunroof is the Model S signature, another must-have.

    Could you explain what you mean by signature or production?

    Signature cars are high-spec, limited number, early delivery. They will be the first to get the cars, but pay more. All signatures are 85kWh packs.

    A single charger allows charging up to 40A, and dual charger up to 80A. 220V 40A is a lot of power, and sufficient for most of HK. 13A @220V is 13x0.220 = 2.86kW.

    So I guess I have answered the signature / production question.

    Thanks for the info on dual charger. Does that mean I shouldn't have got the dual charger if I am mainly planning to charge in public carparks because they won't even have 40A ?

    Most are 13A.

    Some (will) have 32A.

    >40A is very rare, but 80A can charge the car in 4.x hours.

    I have 80A at home, and a wall charger, but I'm still considering whether dual chargers are necessary.

    Did some back-of-the-envelope calculations of the affect of FRT waiver.

    Base 60kWh Model S

    With 100% FRT waiver: HK$579,000

    Without any FRT waiver:
    HK$579,000
    + 40% of the first $150,000 = HK$60,000
    + 75% of the next $150,000 = HK$112,500
    + 100% of the next $200,000 = HK$200,000
    + 115% of the remainder = HK$90,850
    = HK$1,042,350

    With an equivalent FRT concession to 'fuel efficient vehicles':
    HK$579,000
    + FRT
    - Concession capped at HK$75,000
    = HK$967,350

    Tesla Says:

    Changes the pricing picture quite a bit (not to mention comparison table against BMW/Mercedes).

    :scared:

    lx3h, I agree with what Mark says. I was also considering whether to get the Dual Chargers/HPWC combo on the other post "What specs are you planning?", but realised that it is not really needed if you only drive under 100km everyday on average within HK. If your plan is to leave it charging overnight every night at your residence or estate parking space, then with a 220V 13A outlet the charging rate is about 16km/h, or with a 220V 32V outlet it is about 41km/h, so only several hours of charging until your battery is full and ready every morning.

    Apart from the future Supercharger stations Tesla will be building in HK, there're a few CHAdeMO 50kW charging stations out there already which utilise DC instead of AC so it won't matter yours is Dual or Single.

    Also, I think you can purchase the Dual Chargers/HPWC from Tesla anytime if you ever need one in the future, although might be a little more expensive.

    A Tesla staff called just now, and I asked all together. He told me to write to [email protected] to state the change in my configuration. I have decided to opt out of the Dual Charger after hearing what Mark said. Thanks Mark.
