    I can only see that gap getting larger and larger.

    This squares with my anecdotal experience. I have a pretty long commute down the tollway and I see 1-2 of each every day. Even just a couple months ago it was rare to see either.

    Well sure, Texas gets all the sales tax and don't have to payout any of the EV credit, I bet Texas is very happy.

    I seriously thought about getting delivery in CA and driving it home just to screw over "TX sales tax, but no rebate," but decided I wanted the $3k difference for myself.

    I wonder how long it will be before Model 3 sales eclipse the sales of ALL Bolts since its launch. It seems easily doable by end of this year. The Federal rebate and Texas rebate combined with dealer discounts (at least the "best" discounts I see very occasionally), could actually push a loaded Premier mode to right around $30-$32K. That's a good bit cheaper than a Model 3 LR with the Premium package and Federal rebate. In really does show how these two cars have always been playing in different price categories despite their purported similar MSRPs.

    I would agree, likely this year.
    GM set a sales target of 20k-30k annually last year and I believe 30k for this year.
    I believe they could sell more, but they need to ramp up to do that.

    It's looking like early next year assuming the 5k a month from Tesla & 2.5k from GM. Trouble is, it is looking like they aren't selling at 2.5k a month, so when Tesla catches them is floaty, but looking Q1 or Q2 next year easy.

    Nationally may be next year, but I think Texas will come by August.

    Are these just the registrations during May or a cumulative total?
