    I assume NZ doesn't have the dreaded *luxury car tax* :)

    You are correct Ray, No Luxury Car Tax and no import duty, just the GST at 15% which if it is your company as a company car you claim the GST back.

    We can only claim the GST back up to about $50K of car value :(

    Let me know when there is actual evidence of a NZ Supercharger and I'll consider making it sticky too.

    Well those of us outside of Auckland wait for the annual visit from Mike the Tesla Ranger. I like to think he has better availability within the Auckland region.
    I exchanged a couple of emails with him back in April this year. His reply indicated the new Service Centre is taking up a fair bit of his attention at present so at least that indicates the Service Centre is progressing.

    Thanks Alan. You NZ Tesla owners are a brave bunch! As big a Tesla fan as I am, I’m not sure I would own one if I wasn’t close to a Tesla Service Center.

    Ya - but if you live in CA you're kind of spoiled.
    When I bought mine, the nearest charger or service of any sort was over 600 miles away.
    Spent three weeks in 2016 in CA with a friends P85DL - great fun (and service).

    Great news for New Zealand EV fans! Glad to hear it. When my wife and I are on the North Island for a visit in July 2019 we will be sure and stop by.
