    Swire Properties has always sought to embed innovation in every aspect of its daily business operations. In line with this mission, the collaboration with Tesla brings a series of pop-up exhibitions to Pacific Place and Cityplaza in Hong Kong, as well as three shopping malls in Mainland China – Taikoo Li Sanlitun in Beijing, Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li  Chengdu, and TaiKoo Hui in Guangzhou.  Pacific Place welcomed the Hong Kong debut of Tesla’s new Model S today, while the long-awaited Tesla Model X SUV made its Asia debut at Taikoo Li Sanlitun in Beijing on 26 April.

    “Swire Properties and Tesla share a similar vision of creating transformational value, being sustainable and staying ahead of the curve,” said Alvin Kong, Director of Retail at Swire Properties.  “We’re very pleased to be partnering with Tesla and are excited to debut this innovative technology from Tesla in our shopping malls.”

    Currently, Tesla’s destination charging stations have been installed at three of Swire Properties’ malls in Mainland China. In Hong Kong, Pacific Place also houses one of Tesla’s supercharger stations, comprising four supercharger stalls which offer free public charging services to Tesla drivers. As a continuation of its efforts to promote a green lifestyle, Swire Properties will continue to expand Tesla’s charging network in its other portfolios in both Hong Kong and Mainland China.
