hi there, can you start a taiwan forum please? Thx
Moderator's Note: I've reported this to the admins, and will feed back what they decide. For the moment, you can post in the Asia/Pacific forum.
Sure. For context, tesla started selling in Taiwan a few months ago and just opened a store this month, with service location and superchargers following. So I would imagine we have quite a bit to discuss soon.
Have they delivered any cars to customers yet?
Also does Taiwan use the same voltage as Japan? If so I wonder if they'll use the Tesla proprietary plug (US/JP) or something else.
The official timeline is Jan 2017 but there are like 40 already imported to Taiwan
It's 110v here, not 120 so I guess the tesla ones.
Hopefully it's the same Tesla connector as the US models, since that's what most of the imports have.
Does the new Tesla store have answers? It just opened, I saw on the Tesla Facebook page.
I think it's likely the us models. I was just hoping we can create a forum as we will likely have lots more questions soon, such as dealing with the conservative apartment committee here about home charging installations
looking forward to a taiwan forum~
I'd second the request for a Taiwan forum.
Question for everyone who placed an order here--did you get your VIN? Any update on delivery?
For those who are planning on placing an order, my referral code is (snip)
I ordered on July 2nd and got my vin end of sept. You?
Still no word except hopefully by January. They can't even tell me when I'll get the home charger.
On that note, happy news today! My apartment committee is okay with me installing the home charger at our parking. We live in Taipei.
Let's do update each other here until we got our own taiwan forum. Cool meeting other tesla taiwan owners here!
Tesla just announced the first servicing center in Taiwan! It'll be in neihu in Taipei near Costco.
I placed my order in 8/4 and received my VIN in the beginning of October (or it could've been end of September). What configuration did you order? Mine is a 75D with autopilot and SAS. I spoke to my OA and here are some updates regarding Taiwan:
1. The first supercharger will be in Taipei
2. Tesla has home charger installer they work with now. They will contact the owners 1-2 month prior to delivery for installation
3. All cars coming to Taiwan will have Autopilot 2.0 hardware but functioning as Autopilot 1.0--2.0 still needs government approval
4. The current pricing does not include import duty, but includes sales tax
that's great information testaiepi and jclin~ i've ordered one as well but i live in kaohsiung! i ordered mine in sept. do either of u wanna setup a line group? might be better!
Hsumacher, what configuration did you order?
I also just received a call from Orix, Tesla's lease partner in Taiwan. The lease to buy rate is good but the normal lease rate is not great due to the unknown reseal value. I wish Tesla would do a resale value guarantee in Taiwan like they did in Hong Kong.
i ordered the p90d-L
yeah orix got a hold of me too and i like their rates too
I know that Tesla is fairly reasonable priced compare to other imports in Taiwan but I can't understand why it is still higher than Hong Kong when the current prices do not include the import duty.
Sure line group sounds useful. Hsumacher, I just messaged you.
My configuration is the cheapest 60s, ha, because this is already quite expensive for me and I don't think I need the extra speed or range. I got the sunroof, air suspension, faster charging and autopilot.
Jclin, surprised to hear about the first supercharger in Taipei as I previously heard Taichung. I won't complain though since I live in Taipei.
I would suggest checking with your apartment early on on home charging, unless you live in a house.
I think import duty is included in the current price. My owner advisor (sunny) confirmed. The price is already like a 40% higher than us and hk, so I hope that was included already.
Finally my vin is 5YJSA7E10GF1642xx. What's yours? (No worry if you don't want to share)
I think Taichung would make more sense as superchargers r really for long travel and Taichung is the midpoint of Taiwan west coast. But they may put one first in Taipei just because the major target market is in Taipei.
Yes its confirmed that anything in the first few months of 2017 would not have commodity tax, but import duty (already reflected in the price of car) can't be avoided.
Apartments r definitely a hurdle as u need to talk to ur building management in order to allow u to install a charger. I live in a house so I don't have to deal with that problem.
No VIN number for me yet!
What colors did u guys order?
My owner advisor went as far as saying cars imported after the commodity duty examption expires will have higher prices, but they will let buyers out of the contract if he cannot accept the higher price.
My VIN is 1653xx, still in production queue.
I think the biggest problem with charger installation is the separate meter. As long as you can get that they have very little reason to refuse. My building is small and when I brought it up no one objected.
I order the deep blue metallic, beige interior, 19" cyclone wheels, with pano roof.
