    Anyone know if there is any kind of demand in Australia for a Model S?
    As far as I know most EV’s have been DoA in Australia, let’s see if the Tesla will be any different there.

      There have been rumors at Tesla Motors Club forum that Australia has more Model S orders on the books than any other RHD market. I was very surprised to read that because pricing has been available for much longer in the UK and Hong Kong. People must have made reservations purely on faith that the Australia pricing would be fair.

      1. Mikael says:

        I can’t see Australia getting anywhere close to sales in Japan, or the UK either to be honest.

        But hopefully this will a start for Australia to get into the rEVolution.

      D.F. (Mexico City) really needs some cleaner air so that is great news.

      It will probably take some time for Mexico to affect the total North American sales numbers though :P

    Good news for EVs from Mexico.

    Glad to see that Nissan is now actually selling the Leaf to the general public there in Mexico, after the EV taxi test program.

    I think there are enough Mexicans with money to pay a small premium to drive electric.

    South America is a huge market. Brazil, Argentina, Chile are good candidates for Electric vehicles.

    We should soon start to see some EV sales numbers coming in from Central and South America..

    Tesla = my dream car that I can’t afford. :-( *cry*

    Taxi fleets of ev’s are just so obvious.
    With taxis it’s all about time and money, and it is easier and cheaper to keep an ev on the road, especially in the city, where the common complaint of range is virtually eliminated as there are plenty of charging options. Since some taxis spend a lot of time idling, less pollution, in the form of noise and air, just the gentle hum of the cleaner electric engine, down the roads of the overcrowded noisy polluted cities.

    Drug-lords in Mexico, will love the Model S…

    1. Mikael says:

      So much trunk and frunk space to fill ;)

      But then again sales are going great in one of the most drug infested and gun crazy countries of the world already.

    “The 80 model costs $103,400″

    Yeah, pretty sure they meant 85. They made the mistake twice in that valuewalk article.

  8. Priusmaniac says:

    I am surprised wa gets such a higher price then say tasmania for exemple. Perth is a larger market then Hobart. The distance is longer but more then 2000 A$ extra doesn’t seem to be fair.

      thats because of state tax
