2016 Tesla Model X: It's a Mainstream Car - in Southern California
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on September 1, 2016
Looking out the window of our 2016 Tesla Model X and seeing another Tesla might seem like a rare occurrence. And in much of the country it would be. In Southern California, however, it's practically unavoidable.
Maybe it's the strong stock market that's fueling all these Tesla purchases, or maybe it's the allure of driving solo in the carpool lane. Any way you look at it, the sheer number of Teslas on the highways in and around Los Angeles is remarkable.
This should be a good sign for the still-small company. If you can convince people in California that your EV is cool, the rest of the country shouldn't be far behind. At least that's the usual thought process.
