Shanghai giveaway is green light for Tesla

Shanghai handed out free green license plates to five owners of Tesla Model S electric vehicles Thursday, the first time an imported model has attracted the benefit previously reserved for local products, Shanghai Daily reported Friday. 

The plate giveaway is part of Shanghai’s green mobility promotion plan which saves the owners more than 70,000 yuan (US$11,239) — the cost of a car plate at a monthly auction, the report said.

The company has one store in Beijing and plans to open a second one in Shanghai.
