Eerste Model S afleveringen in Hong Kong

The Tesla Motors Team, 26 juli 2014

Honderden Tesla-klanten en -fans kwamen op woensdag samen op de Kai Tak Cruise Terminal in Hong Kong ter gelegenheid van de aankomst van de eerste linksrijdende Model S in Azië. Jerome Guillen, Tesla's VP World Wide Sales and Service, was aanwezig om acht Model S-sleutels te leveren en Hong Kong kennis te laten maken met de eerste twee Supercharging-stations.

"We could not be here without you,” Guillen told the crowd. “It is really meaningful and we appreciate your commitment to helping us with our goal, which is to accelerate the transition to sustainable transportation."

Dennis Lo, a Tesla Roadster owner and one of the eight people to take delivery of a new Model S at the event, also spoke to the crowd, which included Hong Kong movie star and new Model S owner Alex Fong. “Tesla has completely redefined what an electric car can be, and what can be achieved with zero emissions,” Lo said.

Hong Kong’s first Superchargers are the latest and most advanced models and will soon be followed by a series of Supercharging locations throughout Hong Kong, allowing Model S owners to charge for free.
