Tesla's Hong Kong Sales Hit Zero After Tax Breaks Are Slashed

Tesla's Hong Kong Sales Hit Zero After Tax Breaks Are Slashed

The company's market price increased past bigger competitors General Motors and Ford Motor.

This first Model 3 was given as a gift to Elon Musk by a Tesla board member.

The Gigafactory will play a key role in helping Tesla meet its lofty goal of producing 500,000 vehicles annually in 2018, a five-fold production increase.

More to the point, we suspect, is that clean energy is hazardous to the bottom lines of investor-owned electric companies and their traditional fossil-fuel suppliers.

The design matches that of a pre-production auto that was on display in front of the Tesla Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada in July past year.

"Tesla absolutely believes that the Hong Kong market will continue to be very strong over the long term because it's clear that the people in Hong Kong love our cars", the company said in a statement.

On Thursday, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety said that while Tesla's Model S received an acceptable rating in its small overlap front test, it did not get the Top Safety Pick+ rating that the Lincoln Continental, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Toyota Avalon received.

The Wall Street Journal released updated data yesterday on how the elimination of Hong Kong's vehicle-registration tax waiver for electrics impacted Tesla sales, and the results weren't stellar.

Because the Model 3 launch will either make or break this momentum stock in 2017.

Since launching the Model S in 2012, Tesla has made a name for itself as a producer of luxurious and sporty electric cars.

Safety has always been a priority for Tesla and TSLA stock, and the same is true for the Model 3 as well. It's an aggressive schedule that will more than double Tesla's total production rate in six months, and then quintuple it by the end of next year. The autopilot hardware is also a feature on this vehicle. Several automobile shows and plenty of customer reservations later, the first run of Tesla's latest electric cars have begun rolling out of the factory. Up until this year, access was free for the vehicle. In many ways, the Model 3 is not just another regular electric vehicle.

By offering a high-tech, semi-exclusive glimpse of what transportation could become, Musk helped build a massive following for Tesla, with equally enormous expectations.

While second-quarter deliveries rose 53 percent from a year ago, they still were about 12 percent below first-quarter deliveries.

Much of Tesla stock's rise in June was likely related to the company's annual shareholder meeting. He captioned the photo with "First Production Model 3".

Many academics claim investing is a "random walk". The Model 3 is the company's fourth auto to be developed, third in its current line-up, apart from the Model S and the Model X.

Once installed, the battery will provide a 24 hour operation to offer stability services for renewable energy.

Tesla previously said it would charge Model 3 customers to use the company's high-speed Supercharger network.
