Since selling its first all-electric vehicle in 2008, Tesla has had a significant impact on the electric vehicle market. Since the launch of the Roadster in that year, the carmaker has advanced significantly, and as of the second quarter of 2022, data compiled by Experian shows that Tesla accounted for more than 66% of EV registrations in the U.S. This is quite an accomplishment, especially in light of the competition from well-known automakers like BMW, Volvo, and Audi, each of which has prominent electric vehicles now on the market. This achievement is made even more impressive by the fact that many American buyers still favour more affordable hybrids over all-electric cars.
The Tesla vehicles, however, have undoubtedly left their impact for those who aspire to be fossil fuel free. The most recent Tesla model has received accolades from both owners and critics; in fact, U.S. News and World Report has named the Model X and Model Y as the third and fourth best all-electric SUVs, respectively. Particularly the Model Y has received accolades for its spacious interior, comfortable ride, and long battery life.
The capacity and lifespan of the battery is a common worry among those who are delaying the purchase of any electric vehicle, as no driver wants to end up stranded on a road.
You’ll find, however, that Tesla vehicles not only provide a good number of miles on each full charge but will also last a lot longer than you may have thought.
