    Tesla 'Services and Other' Revenue Line Item

    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...

    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 Tesla can win 10% of the pickup market, they'll earn $20 billion per year

    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.

    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. Insane growth. The Spring on Instagram: “A leaked email from...

    Tesla is destroying ICE car sales one model at a time...

    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.

    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...

    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 :)
