Always makes good business sense to make them then park them up.

I suspect that is small fry compared to car sales in acountry the size of USA.
I believe the best selling vee- hicle is Ford F150 pickup.
In some parts of US or Canada an electric vehicle is a non starter because of distances travelled,Australia too.
Until infrastructure is improved.
I can't see having to stop for half an hour or more every three hundred ish miles to charge up will appeal.
Hydrogen fuel cell yes quick fill and off you go.
Gas is cheap there anyway

Does that figure include the 25% that have cancelled their order?

Let's get the facts right, less than 10% of the 518,000 Model 3 pre-orders have been cancelled, and new orders for the Model 3 have averaged 1,800 each day.

So if the Tesla can tow:
Its range will be reduced
You get to the charging point have to unhitch your van, park it somewhere so your car can fit on the charging point!
Assuming its working !
Wait for however long it takes to charge!
Hitch up again and go!
Hmmm no chance!

Obviously technology and infrastructure will improve!
Seen a few Teslas about, nice looking cars and very quick apparently/.
Too expensive at the moment.
Not good reliability record.

If I was still working would consider a small BEV or hybrid, the BMW I3 is nice, guy who lives nearby has one, I would have the range extender option which is a small petrol engine so its hybrid.

Has anyone seen one of these must have cars? No. Not yet and not soon. And itís not because Tesla canít keep up, they are doing free charging deals in the states to get rid of stock cars.

Tesla will soon be caught and left behind, they are a niche manufacturer enjoying some success they canít capitalise on as they canít afford to scale. And thatís where their competitors will catch them and pass them by.
