    Should We Be Concerned?

    What about explaining to regular driver why she/he should buy EV/Tesla. I use to have 2011 Leaf, but in no hurry to get another EV. I guess someone should explain cost and other benefits of EV comparing to plug in hybrid, hybrid and regular ICE. I think Tesla website statement is not really...

    Past Leaf Drivers Users Group

    I drove my 2011 Leaf for about 8KM, but because my commute was about 35 miles one way, and I was not able to charge at work I bought Civic CNG. I bought Leaf because of technology and efficiency. Can’t complain about Civic it cost me about 2.9c/mile and initial cost was very reasonable. I do...

    Cancelled my order today...

    What about buying a car when you really need one. I do not care if fed credit is gone. When I need one, and hopefully will be available without deposit or other type of commitment, I will go and test drive, and make my decision. What do you think when this option will be available?

    Final price on Model 3? ...not concerned

    Considering that 60 kWh base model S is priced @ $68K + $1.2K destination, the real question should be how much you are willing to pay for model 3?

    Will Donald Trump's denial of scientific fact affect Tesla?

    People always buy what is best for them and what they need, therefore counting on government support and subsidies is not the best way forward. Let the best win.

    Tesla Mini Store for Market Testing

    When Nissan was doing this in 2010 and 2012 “drive electric tour”, it was such a nice experience to get familiar with new technology and test drive. Nissan also had Leaf giveaway, wonder if Tesla is doing the same?

    Tesla Mini Store for Market Testing

    Don't be so pessimistic, It is great to have more choices for transportation, EV is here to stay and will slowly expand, for many still way to expensive, and for many simply not suitable yet.

    2013 Tesla Model S85 (Black/Tan), 16K miles - No Longer Available

    Like for everything demand and supply, about a month ago CPO started with 170 inventory cars and now about 200, so their prices are about right or maybe a bit too high. IMO is good thing that prices are going down relatively fast as this create new market for people that previously thought that...

    inventory vs CPO vs New

    Wonder if it is good idea to consider inventory car from remote location. Pictures listed do not represent actual car.

    3 day old import P85D crashed while using TACC

    If not tested/intended for city/traffic it is so simple to disable it with the speed below 45mph or so, do not confuse give false impression that will work in any situation.

    3 day old import P85D crashed while using TACC

    I think is very easy to notice that difference in bumper height is responsible for damage difference to both cars Tesla bumper is much lower so lot of damage and not much damage to Focus. Nothing special about Tesla "special" design, protection of occupants here.

    ICE Trip

    If I charge to 100% at home what speed I have to go to do 260 miles on turnpike minimum speed is 55 mph.

    ICE Trip

    Very often I do turnpike trip of 260 miles and trip need to be done in max 3.5 h. I wonder if 85 can be used to do this trip, and how long it will take to recharge. There are no superchargers on the way.

    Real-world comparison of my cost per mile - MS versus ICE

    Civic NG average 45 mpg, quite often 50 mpg, 28000 miles cost of cng $865, cost of oil change $90, nothing else needed so far, cost per mile is $0.034103. Not a luxury car but quite comfortable for my commute.
