Tesla had 4 of the top 10 selling EVs
from 1st quarter of 2020 to the 1st quarter of 2021. Tesla Ys and
3s outsold all the non-Teslas combined!
What's The Best Electric Car? Tesla Dominates In The Ultimate Comparison
Maybe these graphs might explain why Teslas are selling so much better that non-Teslas:
Many folks think it takes hours
to charge an EV, and therefore they cannot be taken on a long road
trip. Both points are correct except for Teslas!
This is what I am interested in with a 5,000 mile trip on the horizon in a few months.
I have driven a Tesla Model X on three 1,000-mile
trips on non-Interstate highways, and the charging times were like the Tesla numbers above. I....less
than any non-Tesla. It is just too bad that those who
purchase a non-Tesla don't know that a long road trip is just not as
easy as they might have been told, or falsely thought. I would
like to see what EV a non-Tesla owner buys as their second EV.

How is the Tesla business model working?
Tesla has no dealerships and does not spend on advertising; you can
design your Tesla and order it only online by yourself. Auto
dealerships make more money on service and repairs than they do on car
sales. By 2022, Tesla will have over 1 million cars on the roads
around the world.

Ernst & Young's latest forecast
is that fossil fuel-powered vehicles will represent less than 1% of
global sales by 2045, taking their place alongside sailboats and horses
as nostalgic vestiges of historical technologies.
Europe will be the trend setter—EY predicts that EV sales there will
surpass those of legacy vehicles by 2028. China will follow by 2033
and, sadly, the US will bring up the rear, achieving a majority of EV
sales by 2036.
“A mix of changing consumer attitudes, ambitious climate-focused
regulations and technology evolution is about to change the landscape
of vehicle buying forever,” said Randall Miller, EY Global Advanced
Manufacturing & Mobility Leader.
The EY Mobility Consumer Index, published in November, showed that
almost a third of non-car owners planned to buy a car in the next 6
months. Among all prospective buyers, 30% said they'd prefer an
Contrary to popular belief, the oil industry is not oblivious to what’s
going on—oil giants are responding to the news in ways both positive
(investing in EV charging companies) and negative (hyping hydrogen in
hopes of derailing or delaying the transition to batteries).
Study: Car Buyers Are Opening Up To EVs, Tesla Most Trusted Brand
"Tesla earned top status as the most
trusted company to make electric vehicles, and that trend continued,
with 36% of respondents in this most recent study putting their faith
in the company to develop EVs," reports Gazdik.
"More than half (57%) of respondents would be much more likely to
consider purchasing an electric vehicle if gas prices were at $5 per
gallon, and 26% would do so if gas were at $4 per gallon. Among those
who plan to own an [EV] in the next 10 years, 73% would consider buying
a new electric vehicle, and 67% would consider the SUV/crossover body

Tesla releases big, new software update with Disney+, Car Wash Mode, hotspot, and more
Fred Lambert - Jul. 29th 2021 3:05 am PT @FredericLambert
This article in Electrek
surely caught my eye since I had not yet heard about Over-the-Air update 2021.24.
Tesla wrote in the release notes:
“You can now watch Disney+ in the Tesla Theater app.
To launch Tesla Theater, tap the Entertainment icon in the Application
Launcher and select the Theater tab while your car is in PARK.”
With now Disney+, Tesla has now integrated all of the main streaming services.
Car Wash Mode
“Car Wash Mode closes all windows, locks the charge
port and disables windshield wipers, sentry mode, walk-away door locks
and parking sensor chimes. For automatic car washes with conveyor
belts, the Free Roll option shifts to Neutral and prevents the parking
brake from automatically applying if you leave. To access Car Wash
Mode, tap Controls > Service > Car Wash Mode.”
Mirror Auto Dim
For Tesla vehicles equipped with auto dimming mirrors,
“You can now enable or disable automatic dimming for your mirrors. To access, tap Controls > Mirror > Mirror Auto Dim.”
“Dashcam can now automatically save clips whenever your vehicle detects
the occurrence of a safety event (such as an accident or airbag
deployment) Recordings captured are stored and never transmitted to
Tesla. To opt-in, tap Controls > Safety & Security > Dashcam
> AUTO To, lead more about how to setup and use Dashcam, please
refer to the Owner’s Manual.
“You can now switch between battery percentage and
distance units by tapping the range display next to the battery icon.”
Remain connected to Wi-Fi in drive
Tesla is enabling the use of Wi-Fi hotspots when driving:
“To remain connected to Wi-Fi when shifting into
gear, tap the Wi-Fi icon > Wi-Fi Settings > Remain Connected in
Drive. This is especially useful for users who wish to use their
hotspots for connectivity.”
This is a big deal for those who don’t want to pay for Tesla’s in-car premium connectivity features. (I already pay for premium connecivity)
Finally, Tesla has also added three new language options in this new update: Hungarian, Romanian, and Russian
