% of cars still on road

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:

Tesla reported 520 reservations for the Model S during the first week they were available[249] and by December 2012, a total 15,000 net reservations (after deliveries and cancellations) had been received by year-end.[250] The special edition Model S Signature model was sold out before deliveries began in June 2012, and according to Tesla all models were sold out for that year shortly after. A car ordered in May 2012 would be delivered in early to mid-2013.[251][252]

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