    At this point do we know how many Model S's are in Hong Kong? I'm literally seeing 1 to 2 per day and they are not the same cars.

    I don't think anyone knows beside TD and TM. My guess is at least 400 by now, maybe as much as 600?

    any way to get some stats via TD or elsewhere official?

    EPD will announce next year total numbers. If we can get BMW actual figures, subtract that from the difference between then and the last EPD figures and you'll get Tesla numbers (because apart from Tesla and BMW there is not much else going on).

    Also note that Shanghai is no 2 with 71 cars charged in 24 hours!

    Shanghai is probably high due to less at home charging compared to the USA buyers. If you can charge for free in the city, not really a need to keep it plugged in at home. 50 and 48 minutes sounds like cars were not all the way depleted when plugged in and were able to go away on average with a 70% fill. Which makes sense - as people wouldn't usually roll into re-fuel with an empty tank (electric or gas).

    Sightings may be common now, but this car will never be ... it's special, and always will be! (But I know what you mean, pinguhk; just having some Friday fun).

    P85 Thursday 20 November at Shanghai United Family Hospital in Hong Qiao. It is a private hospital popular with expats and well off locals. Yes, that is a Mongolian Yurt in the background....

    With lots more cars coming in the next waves in December and on, HK will be flooded with Tesla Model S cars.

    I've stopped posting on this thread because I'm seeing 2 Teslas a day almost every day. They are everywhere not just a rare thing to see anymore.

    Although Saturday was the first time I saw 4 Teslas in one day! I was in Admiralty/Wan Chai/Happy Valley area.

    And last night I saw the coolest thing ever, I was at the airport and in the parking lot was a dark blue Tesla with a driver waiting for a passenger, and the W Hotel logo on the Tesla!!!

    It appears HK W Hotel bought some Teslas as their chauffeur cars! WOW!!

    I think they got 8 of them or so. And since they don't charge at the hotel, they are "good customers" for the superchargers

    Wonder if any of you knows of anyone high up in W hotel who can lobby them to install their own SC at the hotel entrance. Tesla should be (must have, I presume) lobbying that from day 1, it's cool promotion to see a Tesla SC at the front door!!!

    When are we going to see a Tesla hotel limo?

    I live near, and work in, Central. On an average day I see about 6-10.
