    Personally I am driving about 20,000 miles/year in our Model S.
    I am curious how many of us are driving over 15,000 miles a year. If you are certain you will get over that, however you haven't had yours a year yet please feel free to vote.

    To make this more useful to more people, I have included a number of categories.

    The poll takes a minute to add after the thread is started, sorry about that.

    At 29,000 miles after 19 months but, am more likely to plateau at around 16,000 miles per year.

    I'm hitting 25k/yr+for the 2 years I've had mine. In other threads I had seen many people with 40k+/yr and I'd love to see some higher categories in the survey if you'd be willing to modify it. Thanks for considering.

    Somehow the category "More than 22,501" just doesn't seem to do our friends odometer justice :biggrin:

    Nope. It's "Mr. Mileage Monster"

    Btw, when are y'all having a winter FL meet-up in The Villages? It seams that every other FL car club does (not that we're just ANY other car club though).

    After 9 months I have over 12k miles on my S, so expect to break 15K.

    Wow, that must be the first customer to get to 100,000. Is that My5baby from the TM forums?

    For the record, I did 29k in my first year.

    I do about 40.000 (60.000 km) p.a.

    would be interesting to see the distribution of the high mileage crowd (20k, 30k, 40k, 50k, more than that anyone?)

    FWIW, I (and other Model S owners) have found that we are driving 20% or more miles per year now than in our former ICE vehicles. Whether it is the $$ savings, fun, etc, it is a real effect. I had to call my insurance company 3 times over the year to increase my annual mileage compared to my former policy with a Lexus GS450h.

    Hit 30,000 on the way home from work this morning. This is since June 2013... 14 months. 20,000 since we switched what base we are stationed at in February. This is likely to slow down as we are about to close on a house that's 30 miles from the new base, instead of 75. Also, we'll be deploying soon, so that will slow it down.

    32,000 since June 2013. driving to New Jersey and back for Grass Valley added 8,700, plus a shorter road trip to Vancouver Island. It's been and remains a great ride.
