Fully Self Driving Cars in Hong Kong?

February 20, 2019

Every Tesla car produced since October 2016 already has all the hardware needed to drive itself. Now Elon Musk has claimed full self driving software should be available by the end of 2020 (albeit with a person still needed behind the wheel due to regulatory issues) 

 

Musk had previously referred to Hong Kong as a "beacon city" for Tesla, with the highest ownership per capita of anywhere in the world. It's a shame (depending on your viewpoint) that the Hong Kong Government capped the first registration tax waiver for electric vehicles in April 2017 as it pretty much killed sales for Tesla in the city overnight, however, from registration figures, I'd estimate that there are 3,000 to 4,000  HK Teslas on the road today that could be made fully self-driving in the near future
