Tienen ustedes pensado vender tesla en Puerto Rico?
If you go to the Tesla Bulletin Board and click on any of the topics (such as this one http://www.teslamotors.com/forum/forums/can-new-high-power-wall-connecto...) you will see a place where you can ask questions directly to Tesla.
You might get an answer there; I doubt anyone on the general forum knows the answer to your question.
My answer is Yes, they will. I am a reservation holder for model S already designing my car BUT there seems to be an issue with warranty coverage in PR. I am gathering a group of interested reservation holders to ask for inclusion of PR into the Warranty North American Region once Tesla understands that in PR there is an amazing business opportunity for them. If you or anybody you know from PR is interested in joining our request as reservation holder I will setup a facebook page at www.facebook.com/TeslaenPuertoRico. Good luck!
No veo el porque el modelo S y otros modelos en el futuro no sean vendidos en el caribe incluyendo la Republica Dominicana y Puerto Rico. La compania esta promoncionando en Europa y Asia.
Tesla is offered in Hawaii. There are at least 12 reservations for the Model S, but no gallery is there and no service center is listed. I would anticipate that PR would also be included, but the earlier suggestion to go to the bulletin board thread is probably the best bet.
Hawaii is scheduled for a service center in 2013
Hawaii and PR makes a lot of sense, with high costs of fuel and compact geography so no range anxiety, Solar City would likely do very well in Hawaii with such high costs per kwh....
Dominican Rep. does not make sense as a location as not enough affluent customers but DR and the Caribbean can be served out of a San Juan location...
Honolulu can likewise serve the smaller pacific islands, some with super high fuel costs.
Interestingly on an ecological standpoint those most affected by rising sea levels like low lying pacific island nations could with most easily change out all their petrol cars with electric cars (because of small fleet numbers) and have the first carbon neutral auto fleet...
That's better than having to wait for amphibious 'variants'.
There's Elons next project: make the Model S skateboard amphibious. Bet it won't be hard :P
Considering that his other "hobby" is SpaceX amphibious skateboard should be piece of cake. Just waterproof everything in it for shallow depths like 10 meter or so :-)
Add ballast, scuba gear, couple of water jets for steering and you have what Rinspeed did for Lotus Elise.
I wonder when they add popup scuba gear in the crash tests (quite a few people drown in their cars every year). Seven star safety rating: safe even under water.
I've actually started thinking about how to do it myself, and that scares me -.-
The hardest part would be making the cabin watertight. As for jets, just adapt the air intake in the front of the car and add outlets in the rear (extendable from the underside or bumper mounted with in channel directional control). Does dual duty of cooling the battery & electronics as well as propelling the car.
Must stop designing this stuff -.-
Accident Avoidance Technology on the drawing board?
Not sure if this has been talked about before but I am thinking about Elon's comment recently about the possibility of recharging the Model S faster than...
Hi everyone, I just recently placed my order for a 85w MS and had a few questions regarding charge stations.
Since I live in Austin and have a few...
