Tesla Motors Sold Over 1,800 Model S in Q3 in California
Come on other states, keep up!
Euro deliveries likely depressed that number below previous quarters. Keep it up Cali!
I would say that the "S" is status symbol in Cali.
Seems to be heading there.
When I got mine in April, an approaching Model S always greeted me with a flash of headlights or wave. Yesterday, I drove across town and saw so many that it's clearly no longer such a novel occurrence. I seem to cross paths with more Model S's than new 7 -series or Panameras these days. A happy circumstance.
Wow, nearly a 1/2 of a percent of market share! Very cool!
I believe with the ramp up of middle America and east coast super charger ramp up along with AWD options for the northern group that has come to expect/demand them, we will be able to catch up. Until then..Go Cali guys/gals
We are the home team after all!
The car really sells itself and it's definitely snowballing around here in the Bay Area and in the LA area. I've posted before that my car still gets longing looks from Audi/BMW/Merc drivers on the road who are hopefully just waiting it out on their leases before switching to the MS; more so as I whiz by in the carpool lane while they are practically at a standstill.
Ugm. I suspect WA still has the highest Tesla's per capita.
I drove around San Francisco over the weekend, and I saw significantly fewer Model S's than I see daily in Seattle area.
Also had a lot more people coming up to me to ask what type of car that is.
Over here it's like: "Oh, you guys only have 5 people with Model S's in your office???" :tongue:
I can state unequivocally that there are more Model Ss per capita or per household in Paxson, AK than in any other community on the planet.:tongue: We're up to one out of every six households now!
Tesla sold 1983 Model S in Norway in 2013. Deliveries here started in August. Tesla had 1.4% market share of car sales in Norway for 2013.
For the month of December 2013, Tesla had 4.9% car sales market share, and Tesla Model S was the best selling car model of any type, beating Volvo V70 and V40, Skoda Octavia and Volkswagen Golf. EVs had a car sales market share of 11.2% in December.
It is worth reiterating, I think, that those numbers are for new cars and that Norwegians also import used EVs.
My hope is TM can set up the newly acquired equipment and ramp up production quickly!
2014 should be a great year for them!
It depends on where you are in California. Owning an electric vehicle in San Francisco isn't all that practical because privately owned parking in a covered space where you could install a charger is something of a rarity. Now get down into the Silicon Valley area and you'll see Tesla after Tesla after Tesla. There are literally scores of them where I work. When I was back in Bellevue last fall we saw far fewer than we see down here, which came as a surprise. I'd be curious about an actual per-capita comparison state-by-state.
GeekGirls is right. It's too big a car for SF proper. Down in the Peninsula, the South Bay and parts of the East Bay, there are many clusters as seen from this earlier report:
Model S ownership distribution in some of wealthiest zip codes
Heh Audobon - if only there were 12 households there!
Our household has two adults and two Teslas. That's 100% market share....wheeeeeeeeee
Now, back on topic: with Q3 numbers below the average, is demand in California slowing down?
I wouldn't say that yet. As Cattledog said, Q3 was big for Euro deliveries so, that'd have taken some inventory away. There may also be more folks now waiting for 60s or non-P 85s prioritized behind higher end configs elsewhere.
