Tesla Model S Priced From $74,650 in Hong Kong
Hot on the heels of announcing a starting price of $121,000 for the Tesla Model S in China, Tesla Motors says that buyers in Hong Kong will pay as low as $74,650 to get a 60 kWh Model S.
Here’s the pricing breakdown for the Model S in Hong Kong:
- 60 kWh Tesla Model S: HK $579,000 or $74,650 USD
- 85 kWh Tesla Model S: HK $657,000 or $84,706 USD
- P85 Tesla Model S: HK $761,800 or $ 98,218 USD
A fully loaded P85 Tesla Model S will cost Hong Kong buyers HK $1,038,300 or $133,866 USD
The cheaper prices in Hong Kong (as compared to China) are due to shipping costs, high duties and taxes that are present in China, but which don’t exist to the same extent in Hong Kong.
Jerome Guillen, vice-president of Tesla sales and service, stated:
“To treat our customers in Hong Kong as fairly as possible, we are offering the Model S at the same retail price that customers in the US pay, adding only unavoidable transportation costs, and applying the current market exchange rate.”
Tesla claims to have hundreds of pre-orders for the Model S in Hong Kong. Deliveries there are expected to begin before the end of 2014.
