    Tweet from Tesla yesterday said 931 million miles driven. Any predictions for what day we'll reach 1 billion miles? I hope Tesla makes an announcement then.

    I'll guess 5/12.
    I would expect them to announce it, however, that may just be wishful thinking.

    It was 750M in the last quarterly shareholder letter on 2/11, so we gained 181M in about 70 days, about 2.6M/day. That'd put 1B around 25 days from today (5/18) assuming no growth. Since there will be growth, and since it's likely that on 2/11 it wasn't exactly 750M but some small amount higher, I'm guesstimating Thursday, 5/14.

    I guess if Tesla is able to track this accurately then "Big Brother Is Watching". :smile:

    I'm planning to start adding to the total at noon tomorrow, that's when I pick my 85D up.

    I will be leaving Central California for Milwaukee May first and returning via Montana and Idaho, so jot me down for about 5,000 miles in a two-week period. This should help the cause. :rolleyes:

    So we all know we reached 1 billion and this thread is now stale. And Tesla let us all know (you got the email, right?).

    What I wasn't expecting was a SECOND email, to the SAME address, but this one is slightly different, in that it assumes I am NOT yet an owner but that I should be ("start your count") it dares me, with "Order" and "Test Drive" buttons.

    Even though I have had an account with Tesla since I bought the car online, and I use that account all the time to get to My.TeslaMotors etc, they send out a marketing promotion to get me to buy a car? Not very bright, Tesla.
