Now, the city has capped the tax waiver at HK$97,500 ($12,500) on private EVs, and is only applicable to first-time owners.
Tesla has been working hard to stick to the Model 3 schedule. More details to follow soon, saidTesla in the statement. It is uncertain whether buyers will get the option to upgrade to a battery pack offering more than the base 215-mile range, as is the case with the current Models S and X. Tesla has only confirmed it will offer 18- and 19-inch wheel options. Before, it cost HK$570,000 or $72,900 for the same model. After that, Tesla will move on other US reservation holders who placed their orders before the car's unveiling some 15 months ago. When Denmark announced it would phase out tax breaks for electric vehicles, Musk himself warned that Tesla sales would take a hit. The mass-market #Tesla #Model 3 electric auto is ready to take on the world. The country has since restored some of the subsidies, but the market still lags behind others.

A Tesla representative told Business Insider that the EV giant welcomed government policies making "it easier for more people to buy electric vehicles", but that it wasn't dependent on tax concessions for its livelihood.
Tesla is releasing 30 cars at its launch party on July 28, and 100 more are projected in August. But things haven't gone so well since then. "The challenge to Tesla is how to generate consumer demands without a tax credit".
Range: Depending upon the mileage, how fast a auto is going and other factors, a nonelectric vehicle can get well over 350 miles on a full tank of gas, according to consumer finance website Bankrate. The vehicles would get significantly better as they moved along the production process; by MP2 you'd be hard-pressed to find much wrong with the vehicle at all.
