I just like driving EVs... once you experience that quick pickup and quiet ride... not to mention not having to go to a gas station ever again... very hard to go back to dinosaur mode.

Like many, I prefer to drive the latest technology... but then again, that's why I lease.

I guess I got a Buffet mentality, buy to own, my car is old, haven't had a payment in years...more tech also means potentially more electronics that break down over time, I guess why a lot of you lease, swap cars every few years.  Leasing means you'll have car payments forever too.  Unfortuanately I don't have enough $ to buy a car every few years either.

With the GDP drop like a rock for 2nd quarter, we need more people like IHO. Open their pocket wide and spend more. I’ve over spent years ago.

Fact: car sales are down, people are keeping their cars longer. I think during a recession/pandemic not that many give a #### about new cars. In other words demand is lower now.

If the work from home thing becomes permanent or even a hybrid of 2-3 days in office and the rest at home, it’s going to be harder to justify spending 600-1000/month on a lease. For that little of driving may as well get a Toyota.

Oc car sales down 22% according to oc register.

Is that based on dealership sales?  Registration #s?  New and used?

Oc register: In 2020’s first six months, 67,036 new cars were registered in Orange County, according to data compiled by Experian. These figures, tracking no-fleet retail sales for the industry group, show sales had dropped 4% last year from 2018.

Auto sales were hurt by stay at home orders seeking to slow the COVID-19 pandemic’s spread. That ensuing lockdowns throttled business activity and slashed employment.

The association found some solace in the fact that June’s sales were off just 7% vs. 2019, with trucks up 6% over 12 months. And the countywide, year-over-year drop of 23% was only slightly larger than the nationwide decline of 20%.

But Tesla is outselling all other EVs:

https://cleantechnica.com/2020/08/02/tesla-model-3-had-more-sales-than-2nd-3rd-4th-5th-6th-best-selling-plugin-vehicles-in-1st-half-of-2020/

Quote
While different electric vehicles may be #1 in different markets (the Renault Zoe in France, the Audi e-tron in Norway, the VW e-Golf in Germany), globally, there is no question which electric vehicle is the most popular. According to recently compiled data from EV Volumes, the Tesla Model 3 had nearly as many sales in the first half of 2020 as the 2nd best selling, 3rd best selling, 4th best selling, 5th best selling, 6th best selling, and 7th best selling plugin vehicles combined.

Rear drive standard range Model Y now available to order.

Elon said they wouldn't release it but maybe he just said that so that people would not wait and just order the dual motor models.

It's less than $40k with Cali incentives... time to order.

I predict these will be hotcakes. :)

I have a 2018 Model 3 Long-Range RWD. We're ordering the Model Y SR for my wife that will also double as our family car (we have a little 6 month old).  8)

I'm torn if I should sell a LR RWD 3 for a SR RWD Y.

The 3 is too small for me... so getting the Y is a no-brainer (although not that much bigger :) ).

I think they had to with the ID.4 and the Mach-E coming very soon.

Mach E got a pretty tepid review in the WSJ. Who would buy that over an M3? Like people that buy the Jaguar I-Pace - they do not understand how far behind the legacy OEMs are. And with the stock price Tesla can continue to stockpile the best software, silicon design and battery chemistry talent in the world.

People like morekaos who aren't familiar with the technology don't see how far ahead Tesla is.

Other vehicles makers have been trying for at least 5 years and they still aren't close... eventually I think they can catch up tech wise but then they will be behind in infrastructure and market share.

But, still way more people buying gas cars than EVs.

Once you own Tesla, you never go back.

BTW, I heard Michael Burry, the guy from Big Short who predicted housing crash last time, said Tesla stock would collapse also.
