What is "many" ?

My used 2013 Tesla model S was $43,500 and still has 250 miles of range. I don't think there will be much competition in California.

Tesloop has done a number of studies on there cars.
Bjorn was seeing about 4% annual degradation from 2015 videos. Both cases are admittedly high numbers of miles per year.
True, but it would still be a problem using Mammoth as a home base for day hikes for 5-6 days, which I did recently. Some of our drives were up to an hour each way, no problem filling up in Mammoth at the supercharger. Did another recent trip for day hikes with Bishop as our home base, which worked out only because we were staying at a hotel with L1 charging. I was able to get about 50 miles a night and had no problem driving up to 9,000 or 10,000 feet and back down. There aren't any Tesla destination chargers in Bishop, and the planned supercharging station doesn't seem to be going anywhere. There are a couple of places that have 220 volt charging, but these are RV places and I think you would have to stay there to get a charge.GRA wrote: ↑Sun Sep 29, 2019 2:23 pmAs Bishop is only 40 miles (and 3,700 ft. ) from Mammoth, and EA is building a QC site there as well as in Murrieta, Riverside, Hesperia, Mojave and Coso Junction (as well as the existing site in Ontario) , getting a Taycan to Mammoth from LA or San Diego won't be an issue once they're open.
Trump and Musk, and their followers, have a lot in common.
