I need the first production one to be sold in july, there's a $20 bet with my boss in it for me.  Looking like I might take that out.

 

 

30 are being delivered to customers on July 28th.....so you'll win that bet.

Dont know about the model 3 - But have definitely noticed several Teslas here in Auckland in the last few weeks - the X and the S models.

 

Could be the same vehicles I keep seeing (I should really take notice)- but I guess they are officially sold here now - so could be we start to see a few more on the road.

 

 

There a now 168 Teslas in NZ....with 112 of those being registered since Jan 1. Most are around Auckland.

Slightly off topic but does anyone know what the Hyundai Ioniq costs?

 

A stuff article earlier this year suggested $60k but who knows if that is accurate.

 

I couldn't see the price on Hyundai's website or on the show car they had at WLG last week.

 

Unusual, because Hyundai provides the price for their other cars.

 

 

As @Wellygary said, $59.990. 

They don't discount for single cars. But if you're going to buy 10 or 20......talk to them.

And I've seen a total of one tongue-out (hooked up to the charger in Quay St, Whakatane).

 

I saw one in action in 2013 when I was in the US though; we were following it down the highway laughing

Not having any grille on the front does look unusual - I think they should have added one even if it was just for appearance. 

 

Edit: After all, it does have vestigial exhaust ports in the rear bumper!

Elon Musk is really a South African, so all credit in that department should go to the jappies :-) 

 

Actually the car is styled by Franz von Holzhausen, previously from Mazda. See the resemblance?

Sure, I get it's popular, but I wonder how many of those people think it's ugly as well?

 

If it suited my needs, I'd consider one regardless of looks, I am just saying, it's ugly.

Um, most people won't shell out their cash for something they think is ugly so the answer I expect is very few.

People shell out their cash for all sorts of ugly things, Holdens, Fords, mazda's... This car looks and performs better than all of those.

 

+ It has one important feature which other cars dont have, its a Tesla. :-)

I don't believe that (most) of them think they are ugly.

 

 

 

The model 3 IMHO ain't ugly. It's just rather generic looking.
