    The MIA Register shows two new ones in Feb 2015, Private Imports but does anyone know how many Tesla's there are in New Zealand?

    The MIA data excludes cars that have entered NZ as "used" because they were registered before they got here.

    A friend of mine in Wellington thinks he spotted a P85D at the Miramar Studios and believes it belong to Peter Jackson.

    Hi all,

    I think that Sir Peter's is a P85+. It appeared on the "Bring Tesla to New Zealand" Facebook Page on 19th March: https://www.facebook.com/TeslaTalkNZ (click on the photo of the car to enlarge it and read the badge).

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    Great news, one more new import in May, so that's 4 new imports for the YTD 2015 plus the six here already. New Count of TEN Tesla in NZ.
    is it 10 Tesla or 10 Teslas? what do you call a group of Tesla cars

    Good question @collective. A shock of Teslas perhaps?

    I prefer the collective pronoun of "A disruption of Teslas"

    A delta of Teslas?

    (as in how the delta symbol is used in mathematics to represent a change or difference)

    Anyone know what Tesla's position is for NZ in terms of new cars, if I buy a new one from Australia, would it have a warranty later when Tesla finally comes to NZ or would the warranty still be stuck with Oz?

    Hi,

    Well I can tell you there is currently no warranty when you import it into NZ (and you have to sign a contract to that effect before they will accept your deposit). IMHO Tesla are a fairly long way off establishing an official presence in New Zealand.

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    Sigh, this is the one time I wished an American company accidentally thought NZ was part of Oz lol
