As some have pointed out, it looks like you're in South Carolina. The disinterest in EVs there might be a combination of that being truck country and in some parts of the US the political climate is blowing the other way. EVs are very popular in the west coast states as well as most of the more urban areas of the country. Outside the US EVs are becoming very popular in Europe where governments are pushing for their adoption on top of growing consumer awareness. China too is encouraging EV ownership and there are a lot of domestic brands, but Tesla is the big cache brand and they will be making Model 3s in China soon. Car sales always sees a dip in the first quarter of the year, and this year was going to be worse than usual for Tesla because the $7500 credit ran out December 31 and Tesla also scaled back the referral program. Tesla built a lot of Model 3s in Q1, but many were still in transit overseas at the end of the quarter. Those sales will be credited to this quarter. The Model S especially is looking a bit tired compared to the Model 3. There were rumors of an update last fall, but it was delayed because of the Model 3 production problems. It's almost certainly coming sometime this year. GM is pushing hard to extend the EV tax credit which might happen. If so the $7500 will be back for a while. I don't think this year is going to be stellar for Tesla, but I don't see them on the ropes either. Subarus are popular here too. My SO has an Impreza and I did a calculation of how much it costs to drive both cars. My Model S costs about $0.025/mile and here Impreza about $0.10/mile and my car handles better in the snow (an admission that came hard to her). Even though EVs cost more initially, the cost of ownership is significantly cheaper. My SO has probably spent more in regular maintenance on her Impreza than I have in electricity for my Model S over the last 3 years. Most people still don't realize that yet, but awareness is growing.
