Invitation to the First HK Model S Deliveries

On the Tesla Motors Club forum I received a great news that the Tesla Model S is finally arriving in Hong Kong on the 23rd July!! There will be an opening event in which the first Hong Kong Model S is to be delivered to the first customer! Whether Elon Musk will be here in Hong Kong for the grand opening I have no idea. Rumour has it that he will not, but I am hoping that he still comes.

It is expected that the first supercharger will also be the location of the event, which is unknown at the moment, but rumour also has it that it will be at the Cruise Harbour at Kai Tak, Kowloon.

What is definitely true is that Hopewell will continue to support Tesla and that they are upgrading the 11/F parking lot in Hopewell Centre in Wanchai,

and it is likely that they will continue to offer Tesla 6 hours free parking and supercharging! This is a win-win situation as people like me never visit Hopewell thus I never spend money there. Soon, I will be going there once a week for charging and possibly yum cha as well. Gotta love this company!

That being said, I do not think I am being invited for this supercharger opening-cum-first Model S event, since I have not received an invitation till now. It is a pity, as I was planning to bring along my baby in her Tesla onesie, a gift from my sweet sister (Thank you!), to support Tesla and make her the first baby reporter ever at the event!

Well, never mind, I can always make a video when my baby's Model S arrive, yes, it is gonna be her car.

And so for now, what I can do is to re-show you the video I have made for my most recent test drive.

Rumour also has it that the production cars have been once again delayed till October, well, I am a patient man so I am fine with that.
