    So I guess 8 cars delivered initially but no Elon. I sort of figured he might not be at smaller market events.

    I guess Elon went to the Colbert Report instead

    I think he will be there at the first delivery for every new country.

    Not every state or province. He did not show up for the first delivery to West Virginia nor do I expect first delivery to Wales.

    For Elon to treat Hong Kong or Taiwan as a separate country might bring more headaches than they are worth.

    I already posted here in the Video forum some days ago Hong Kong: Model S initial Signature Model S launch event July 23, 2014 , about the exact same event - not sure why there is a new thread now?

    Don't feel bad about no Elon; at least you had a party! In Canada the first deliveries took place at an airport hangar at the Toronto Pearson Airport. Not much ceremony, but was just happy to get the car!
