Bro .. for FSD to work, need 5G network unless u have a secret tech that we not aware of.

😀

You're quite right. Even in the US, FSD is still very much a Work In Progress. Tesla SG offered it as a S$11k add-on now. 

Meaning customer can pay upfront first, and use it with limited functionality until 5G starts here?

It has to be expensive as it is a cheap very fast car.

As mentioned, the accident record for Tesla would not be low

a car which is quiet and fast may give a total false sense of safety and security to the person inside.

Its usually not the top speed in SG that gets people into accidents, its the acceleration .

Purchase price is somewhat lower due to early adoptor grant, and cutting out the blood-sucking middleman dealers, that cream off $50k a pop. Not that it is a particularly cheap car vis-a-vis the regular junior executive sedans.

 

But yeah, the road tax, the insurance and even the excess will shock the typical buyers of regular junior executive sedans. The road tax and insurance of a M3P over 10 years, can probably pay for a brand new Cat A BnB sedan at today's prices, assuming you got 50% NCD, I.e. knocking on 6 digits already. Don't even know insurable or not, if say 0% NCD. 

Haha....

I'm not an insurance broker, so I will be honest that i don't really know the range, so I won't comment.

Yeah, insurance quotes not available online. You have to write in to get a quote, which was what I did.

Liberty. Best to just get your own quote, since everyone's insurance profile/claim history is different.

A hybrid car makes so much economic sense and convenience compared to an electric car unless you stay in a landed house with a personal charging outlet.

The electricity tariff is increasing and there will be more electric cars competing for limited public charging lots at popular places.

Finally saw one in the fresh yesterday along expressway..speed macam only 30bhp...driven by one that looked like in the late 60s if not early 70s...

A bit odd on the shape...i tink it's to accommodate the batteries and to have enough head room for passengers that they raise the roof line that made it look like the head of a dolphin 

Huge front windscreen but the rear one a bit too small becos of the raised short buttock
