3.2 Million Tesla Supercharger Miles Already Logged | Clean Technica

3.2 Million Tesla Supercharger Miles Already Logged | Clean Technica | Electric Vehicles | Scoop.it

On Monday, Tesla Motors tweeted that its Model S owners had already logged 3.2 million miles (5.15 million kilometers) on the company’s Supercharger network. To be honest, that’s a lot more than I would have guessed.

 

Tesla also noted in the tweet that 3.2 million miles of electric driving offsets about 130,500 gallons of gasoline. At a cost of $0 per charge (the network is free for Model S owners, and is supposed to always be free for them), that would be about $465,493 in savings based on the average price of gas across the US on Monday ($3.567/gallon).

 

If you used the average price of gas in California (where the largest number of Model S’s are sold), the savings amount to about $528,786. With that amount of money, Tesla could have given away about 7½ Tesla Model S’s. But I imagine the free and super-fast charging sometimes directly powered by solar panels goes a longer way in attracting customers.

 

Anyway, here’s the official Tesla Motors tweet:

California Car Dealers Go Crying To DMV About Tesla's Website | Techdirt.com

California Car Dealers Go Crying To DMV About Tesla's Website | Techdirt.com | Electric Vehicles | Scoop.it

Auto dealers have been dealing with disruption just about as well as any other legacy industry has. Instead of attempting to compete, dealers have chosen to respond to Tesla's refusal to cut them in on the middleman action by throwing up as many regulatory roadblocks as possible. Sadly, this antagonistic attitude toward both their competition and the car-buying public somehow makes sense to them, and they seem very willing to bury both the upstart and their last remaining shreds of goodwill at the same time.

In many states, the usual course of action for car dealers is to lobby for protective legislation. Many states have already hooked up car dealers and made it illegal for manufacturers to sell vehicles directly to the public. The remaining states that haven't are being pressured to follow suit.

However, Tesla's direct sales are completely legal in California. Rather than mount an attempt to push protectionist legislation through, the auto dealers have decided instead to attack Tesla's direct sales website, accusing the company of deceptive marketing and pricing.

great interview

Nick Roberts's curator insight, October 17, 2013 11:48 PM

Stanford GSB has awarded the Tesla Motor CEO with Entrepreneurial Company of the Year. Elon Musk is a man of many achievements, he founded PayPal, he is the inspiration for Tony Stark and started zip 2.  Most likely his greaest achievemet should be Tesla Motor. His ultimate goal was to drasically effect the future of humanity, "...like creating a new nervous system." What he is referring to is the internet. He beleives that computers are a world wide nervous system communicating different thoughts throughout it. He looks at a computer in terms of a person. It has a brain, a memory, a body and a nervous system. He even briefely talks about genetic engineering.
