Tesla Giga-Service Center – Largest In Asia, Opens In Hong Kong

SEP 7 2016 BY ALEX WAI 7

Size matters with many of Tesla’s operations.  During a visit to Hong Kong in January, Elon had promised to launch a brand new service center to meet the growing demands of local owners (nearly 4,000 to be more precise and growing).

Without any official announcement, the new service center has started operations this month, but details on the total floor space and number of stalls available is still a secret. Some owners were unaware of the new location, as they were still receiving reminder emails to take their car to the old service center address that is a block away (which has now been converted into a Tesla delivery center).

Tesla claims that this is the largest service center in Asia and it will increase the service capacity.

Many patient customers have previously reported that an annual service took a few days to a week even with a regular to-do-list items.

In the last week or two since the new center came into full operation, a number of owners have reported receiving same day service for their annual check-up, which is a massive improvement. Same day service is not uncommon in Hong Kong, as ICE based service centers have been providing such an efficient service for quite some time now.

Customers will definitely want to see service speeds that will one day match F1 pitstop performance, that will differentiate standard service time compared to ICE vehicles in the other direction.

With Tesla having over a 70% EV market share in the city, this Giga-sized service center should be able to cope with current demands, as well as the long waited RHD Model X – arriving in Hong Kong by the end of the year.

Thanks for the Hong Kong pictures. Nice to see actual EV reality in real world pictures.

With about 12,000 Model S sold on the mainland and nearly 4000 sold in H.K. China will likely soon be Tesla Motors largest market outside the U.S.

So far, sales in China and H.K. in 2016 exceed European sales.

This is a great sign, that Tesla is charging full speed ahead in Asia. They will probably follow by opening big service centers next year in China, Australia and Japan.

Always good to see an article by Alex Wai. More, please!

Alex: Thank you for taking the time to provide some info and background to put your photos into context. I know that InsideEVs prefers shorter pieces, but some of us like in-depth coverage!

Hoping to seeing more articles like this.

That is a very real ,very cool service centre..If only electric cars could be mainstream. That is the way all service centres should look someday. Very fresh & Clean , No greasy oiled up floors!

Not everybody can afford shiny new floors (or rather service bills that would carter to such luxury needs of Yours)…

Awesome article, Alex! Thanks for the photos which are very helpful for the many Tesla owners in HK!
