    Hi,
    Recently, Subaru was mentioning in their adds that "+90% of their 10yo+ cars are still on the road" refering to their safety.
    Anyone knows if this kind of data exists (and where) about the 2012+ Tesla's ?

    Thanks

    Tesla will know this data better than any other manufacturer given the fact that all of their vehicles, other than the Roadster, are connected to the mothership. It would be interesting to see the data. I am guess that other than few that were totalled, all Teslas are still on the road. But many Roadsters may not be driven so much these days.

    side note: 2012 + 10 years = 2022 :cool:

    more interesting details: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_Model_S

    I doubt 10% [~1,500] of the 2012 production run have been wrecked or taken to the junk yard. You??

    It's not that they are not driven, they are not supported by tesla anymore, so most are afraid to drive them. On saying that, my 90D sits idle a lot more than my roadster.
