    Trying to confirm this, I think there may have been 1 or 2 X's in that lot.
    I will update if or when I find out.

    Thanks Miggy. Would be interesting to know and to compare with other countries where Tesla recently had entered in, like Taiwan, UAE, Portugal,...

    You will need to get a category A LHD vehicle permit from the NZ Transport Agency.

    To issue a permit for a vehicle, the Transport Agency must either deem it to have historic value, or it must be a vehicle that was not manufactured in right-hand drive form that meets three of the following four requirements:

    • The vehicle (or its make, model and submodel) is identified as being a collector's item in a commercially produced motoring publication.
    • The vehicle's make and model and submodel has been (or was) manufactured in annual volumes of 20,000 units or less.
    • The vehicle is, and was manufactured as, a two-door coupe or a convertible.
    • The vehicle is, and was manufactured as, a high-performance vehicle.
    You must also comply with the following requirements:

    • You must be a New Zealand citizen or resident.
    • You must not have received a category A LHD vehicle permit during the two years before your application.
    • The vehicle must be registered in your name.
    • You must prove the other necessary standards for the vehicle year.

    so where has the Tesla been identified as a collectors item? I guess he managed to benefit from it being manufactured in low quanities and that it is indeed a high performance vehicle.

    Any news on September sales as yet? I imagine we'll be seeing a marked increase now the Tesla pop-up store is running

    I'm traveling here to visit family and was pleasantly surprised to see a MS on Donovan Rd in Blockhouse Bay. I didn't know if I'd actually see a car on the road with so few (relatively) registered in NZ. Was also glad to see two destination chargers in Paihia. Road trip!

    Kudos to all of the Kiwi Tesla owners who have made a commitment to the car before Tesla even set foot in NZ.
