    Model S display comes to Hong Kong

    You maybe all saw this already, but it popped up in U.S. news today:

    [top]Tesla Motors Inc. : TESLA PUTS MODEL S TECHNOLOGY ON DISPLAY IN HONG KONG

    09/07/2012 | 05:43pm US/Eastern
    Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) has begun showcasing the advanced technology that powers its Model S sedan in Hong Kong starting next Monday, September 10th. The Model S is the world's first sedan built from the ground-up as an electric vehicle. Tesla will have the rolling chassis of Model S on display at its service center, located at King Place Plaza on Sha Tsui Road in Tsuen Wan. The display in Hong Kong follows closely after a similar rolling chassis display kicked-off in Tokyo last week.
    The displays highlight the innovative components that make up Model S' drivetrain including the motor, battery pack, front suspension assembly, and rear drive unit. The tour is part of Tesla's strategy to introduce the public to the advantages of electric vehicles. Visitors can see and touch the building blocks of Model S.
    Equipped with Tesla's advanced electric powertrain, Model S provides instant torque and smooth acceleration from 0-97km in 4.4 seconds. The aluminum body is engineered for superior handling, safety and efficiency. With the most energy dense battery pack in the industry, and best-in-class aerodynamics, Model S has the longest range of any electric car in the world, up to 480km on a single charge.
    The components on display demonstrate the superiority and efficiency of Tesla's electric vehicle architecture. Customers will be able to see how Model S' flat, lithium-ion cell battery improves rigidity and handling, how the rear drive unit is efficiently designed for maximum power, and how the lack of an internal combustion engine makes Model S stronger and safer.

    The Model S components are just one pillar of Tesla's mission to reinvent the way people buy cars. Breaking from the traditional dealership model, Tesla stores entice, inform and engage prospective customers with innovative touch-screen interfaces, knowledgeable product specialists, and a virtual design studio where they can customize their own premium Model S sedans.

    They had a private cocktail party for Roadster owners and Model S reservation owners, for the 'reveal'.

    Hopefully we'll get a left-hand-drive demo car (not drivable in Hong Kong, but at least we'll get to sit in it and play with the console), later this year. First deliveries for Hong Kong should be mid 2014.
