It's insane how good EV range is getting, across all vehicle classes.
Cars can go up to 402 miles, bikes can go 155 miles, scooters can go 120 miles, even skateboards can go 60 miles on a charge.
The Longest Range Electric Vehicles In 2020 | ZAP EVs Blog
Every few days I stumble across a new company building a new electric vehicle. The pace of innovation in the EV space is truly incredible right now, so I built this dashboard to keep track of all the world's top electric vehicles.

Does anyone on here have reliable data for the current Model 3 sales mix? Ex. How many Model 3 LR vs. Performance vs. SR+ sales in 2019?
I'm putting together my estimates for Tesla's Q4 and FY2019 revenues and profits. Would appreciate any insight!
How does Tesla at an $80 billion market cap compare to companies like Apple and Amazon when they hit $80 billion?
TL;DR: Tesla has similar revenues, faster growth, and lower profits. Overall, $80 billion seems reasonable.
Understanding Tesla Valuation: Is Tesla’s Market Cap Too High Or Low?
Hadn't thought of that before. Do you think the trade-in revenues are larger than the service centre revenues? The 'service and other' revenue line item seems to be scaling with Tesla's overall fleet size, so I suppose either could be the driving factor (or both).
Interesting point re...
Does anyone on here know what Tesla's 'services and other' line item includes? Obviously revenues from service centre appointments are included, but how about things like supercharging payments? Is there anything else I'm missing that would be included in the line item?
Hold Mode is epic. I can't get over how much simpler city driving is without having to switch between pedals. Anyone who hasn't downloaded 2019.36 yet is missing out on a true one pedal driving experience.
Great info. So if we use the numbers from Google's billing section and assume every Tesla driver loads 2 maps per day, that's 800,000*2*365 = 584 Million map loads per year. At roughly $10 per 1000 map loads, that's roughly $5.84 million per year spent on Google's map display.
I know these are...
Thanks for clarifying. Driving a Tesla has made me realize I never want a car that *doesn't* have a map interface on display. If all other automakers come to the same conclusion (eventually), we could have a world with 250+ million full screen mapping/navigation systems in cars.
With that kind...
Does anyone have a good estimate or insight into how much Tesla pays Google for access to their navigation system? The lower-right hand corner of every Tesla display shows a 'navigation by Google' watermark.
Curious to know how much Tesla is paying for that map data, and if there are plans to...
The US pickup truck market is about 3 million trucks per year. With an average selling price of $65-70K, the Cybertruck could do more revenue than the Model 3 with only a 10% market share.
And as the video explains, there are only 3 main truck competitors in America.
It's insane how steady Tesla's efficiency improvements have been, and the charts in the article show how Tesla is simply in a league of its own when it comes to overall efficiency.
Tesla Vehicle Efficiency: The Gold Standard Among EVs
Not an official record of my charging stops, but I used over 100 of them across America and Canada. Kind of crazy how reliable they were. No bad directions on the map, and only 1-2 charging stalls I encountered were out of order (others at the same station were working fine). Also, no wait times...
I just returned from a 45 day road trip in my new Model 3, which was over 20,000km (12,400 miles) all over North America.
In the video below, I covered some of the best and worst things about taking a Tesla on a long road trip.
If anyone here is thinking about taking their Tesla on a long...
They should be comfortable with the numbers, let's put things in perspective here.
In 2017, Tesla delivered 103,000 cars for the entire year. They could very well hit 103,000 sales in just Q3, and definitely in Q4 if they miss Q3.
The Spring on Instagram: “A leaked email from...
Crazy how fast sales have grown for Tesla. Their FY 2017 sales are now their expected quarterly sales!
The Spring on Instagram: “A leaked email from Elon Musk claims Tesla could deliver over 100,000 vehicles in Q3 if the end-of-quarter delivery push goes as planned.…”
I'd imagine both companies have sales of some cars that are up, but the C-Class and 3-Series cars are closest in features and specs to what the Model 3 offers. Makes sense to compare these cars and watch the trend long-term.
Since Tesla revealed the Model 3 in 2016, US sales of Mercedes C-Class cars are down 31%, while US sales of BMW 3-Series cars are down 37%.
Now the Model 3 is out-selling both cars combined! In the first 8 months of 2019, 94,250 Model 3 cars have been sold in America...
If every car in America had Tesla's autopilot, 5.5 million crashes would be avoided each year.
On active safety alone, 5 million crashes would be avoided each year.
Insane how much better these cars are than the average US driver...
The Spring on Instagram: “There were 6,452,000 car crashes...
23.5% of all cars sold in San Francisco in the first half of 2019 were EVs. If SF can go from 0% to 23% in ~10 years, it's scary to think about how large the EV market can become in the next 10 years. Of course Tesla led this surge, they sell more than 5x the next best EV (hybrid) in California...
A couple weeks ago I bought my first ever car, a Model 3. After 6 years of waiting and saving, I decided to immediately take off on a road trip around North America.
The car is driving like a dream so far, I'm now 13 days (and over 7,000km) in to my adventure.
I'd love to hear recommendations...
And once the other guy is proven to be 100% at fault, that means all costs of repair automatically come from his insurance company? This is my first car so I'm new to this whole accident/insurance thing :)
