Which zip has the most T

Which zip has the most T

You can nearly be run over in SoCal by a Tesla product. I say that figuratively given that due to the active pedestrian measures incorporated by the car, that would rarely happen. I live in a town of 15000 in south west Alabama that admittedly does not fit normal Alabama demographics, but has-what seems to me a large contingent of Tesla products. Does Tesla release data on this? It would be hilarious if a small town in my region had a higher density of ownership than Manhattan Beach-probably not going to happen but....

Well first, Tesla won’t release that information but they certainly do have that data. Even if they did, there would be several ways to view the data. There is the number of Tesla per capita, number of Teslas per the number of cars registered, the number of Teslas per given square miles, etc., etc.

Here in CT the largest number of Teslas per capita is in a relatively small town, Westport.

You haven't been to the Bay area yet (Northern California). To me, Teslas are more common now than any other car. Ok, I do have some bias, but I honestly believe about 1/3 of all Tesla's made are delivered locally. Lots of reasons for this:
- Home of Tesla, with factory & development
- Very high percentage of people are engineers here (and understand EVs advantages long before most others)
- High incomes
- Many like to be green
- People hear from other owners
- No real competition for alternatives
- Want to buy american if well built
- Early owners willing to be on the leading edge
- Love of the high tech of Tesla

I tend to agree with TeslaTap. It used to be BMW and Lexus RX everywhere but I now see more Tesla than any of those in especially more upscale neighborhoods. The Bay Area especially the Silicon Valley has a lot of young techie types that love Tesla and could afford to buy one. One good indication is density of superchargers. SoCal may have a few more but it has much larger population than the Bay Area. It still looks the Bay Area has the highest supercharger density than anywhere else.

Won't go that far, but things are looking up in my neighborhood.

@stevec, great to hear that there are high Tesla density pockets in Alabama. I have family members living in Mobile, and they seem to be brain dead regarding Tesla.

I've had many a good, well received discussion about Tesla throughout the last decade when I've been in Huntsville, AL. I know Huntsville is a bit techie compared with the rest of the state (some argue it has the most PhD's per capita of any city in the world) but there has never been any shortage of interest.
