niky: Note: It took YEARS for the LTO to finally approve licensing for E-jeeps for road use, leaving some buyers in the lurch. And E-Jeep registration is a special low speed license. If you grant that to the Tesla, it will not be legal to drive it on the highway.
niky: Only registrations I know being given out are special low-speed licenses for E-jeeps and trikes. The Tesla falls under neither classification.
The LTO is very, very slow to recognize new car classes and classifications, and it can be frustrating dealing with them when bringing a new product to market.
streamline100: They say the Tesla Model S isn't street legal here in the Philippines. Well how come we have e-jeepneys plying in & around Makati CBD? Even heard of e-trikes soon to be (or now) plying around the metro. What gives?
streamline100: I had our motor vehicle (ZA€ 341) annual renewal registration last January 5, 2015. LTO said that the new type of car plates will be available within 45 days. Yesterday I got news that the plates will be available within 90 days. They might as well make it available 180 or 365 days even.

JoHunter: Top Gear UK is back! Who's watching?
Kyoichi Sudo: For some reason, the new 3rd gen Kia Sorento excites mo quite much
edrian1011: I want a Tesla P85D! LoL
streamline100: Intrigued seeing the video of the head-to-head quarter mile race of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat & a Tesla AWD Model S. The Tesla was stealthy while the Hellcat was noisy. Silence runs deep.
wily23: Can't wait for TGP's next issue. This month seems long without reading the latest copy of TGP.
FireUpTheCossie: @JoHunter - Now that you've said that, it brings to mind the lack of passion among the youth for today's cars. I won't be surprised if that quote ends up as the final nail in the motoring industry's coffin.
aeronTGco: My new year's resolution for the year 2015 is to drive more efficient.
JoHunter: "We forget these days how good cars used to be. Not in safety, not in fuel economy, not in emissions. Just joy. Just handling."
