    Not bad. Total Plug-Ins are 2.5%.

    I'm pleasantly surprised the number is that high!

    If California finances, credit rating, and pensions were flooded with Petro-Dollars we would have the disposable income to quadruple right away.

    Some of us have to actually work to fund our retirement.:wink:

    Wonder if a good part of that "OTHER" is Tesla.

    Um, no. Total EV share is 1.3%. Even if you assume it is equally split between Nissan and Tesla (which is wildly optimistic to Tesla), that is 0.65% of the full 2013 California auto market to Tesla. That is not a "good part" of the 8.5% OTHER in the pie chart. In fact, it's less than 8% of that 8.5%.
