0%, huh? So you think Tesla can deliver more than about 100,000 Model 3s in 2018? I'm estimating that's how many Toyota Prius Primes will be delivered this year.

They certainly don't care for the fact that these are all sub-20 mile AER PHEVs, and I mostly agree with them with the exception of the A3. Owners seem to be getting 19-20 miles AER in the real world, so while I'd much rather see its (actually, all of them) with an EPA AER in the low to mid-20s, I give it a pass for now based on its price and general performance. The next (battery) gen of all these cars needs to crack the 20 mile barrier.
Guy [I have lots of experience designing/selling off-grid AE systems, some using EVs but don't own one. Local trips are by foot, bike and/or rapid transit].

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.
