    Norway had a drop that lasted 2 years while they were at 20% EV market share. Now they're at 92%. I'm sure everyone was saying the EV fad was over then, too.

            some are ideologically opposed to EVs for 'tarded political reasons

            others (myself included) really dislike them as cars. they're *fricking great* EVs, especially the whole package incl the charging stations, but as cars, they suck pretty bad.
            compare the model S with other cars in its price range. aside from the straight line performance, which is indeed outstanding, its just utter shit. and don't even fricking get me started on the model 3 that doesn't even have a gear shifter any more. or functional auto wipers.

            Junkyards are for totaled cars. Cars that have taken major damage. A small ding on a Tesla is enough to junk it because the battery is super dangerous. Teslas are a disposable appliance with major planned obsolescence built in. That's a fact.

            material quality, build quality, nvh, ride comfort, usability, sound system quality, customizability, repairability, customer service. vs cars of equal price, ofc.

            pretty much everything except the drivetrain is mid '00s hyundai tier for the 3 and Y, and at best entry level merc/bmw for the S and X, which is entirely unacceptable for the prices they go for. the only remotely defensible proposition is the entry level model 3, which is at least somewhat close in price to what the car part of it warrants.

            the whole "one screen to rule them all" thing also sucks ass heavily, especially on the 3 and Y that don't even have a instrument panel. i must admit that tesla's infotainment is very good, for what it is, but what it is sucks ass. and at least the voice rec works. but i'd take the new camry interior over any teslas, any day of the week.

            One could write an essay on why enthusiast car communities dislike Teslas. Quick breakdown—they represent the shameless commodification of the automobile. They are soulless appliances and proud of it. Reasons I say this:

            They are next to impossible to work on yourself. While nearly any problem with a Miata can be fixed by a moron with internet access and a modest toolbox, almost every single thing that goes wrong with a Tesla warrants taking it to a dealership. The owners are ok with this because they aren’t enthusiasts, just consumers, and they couldn’t care less about the decentralization of auto repair/maintenance.

            The build and finish quality is poor. Panel gaps galore and shitty interior materials. Lots of fancy electronics that are guaranteed to be outdated (if not totally shit the bed) within 10 years. The owners (and company) don’t care because they view the automobile as a disposable appliance to be upgraded regularly.

            They are not very fun to drive. While the straight line speed is great, and they’re comfy on the highway, they’re far too heavy to be tossable in the canyons/on the track and they aren’t fun to put-put around town on a sunny day. They also aren’t worth shit off road, so there’s really no scenario where most enthusiasts wouldn’t rather have a totally different car.

            No kinetic experience. No engine noise, dead steering feel, no shifts, just zero engagement for the driver. Pretty much the opposite of a motorcycle (the single greatest form of transportation)

            They’re also just pretty gay

            because any work that needs to be done on them would be equally undoable on an ICE for most users. Things like oil changes, which is the extent of what "enthusiasts" do to cars themselves, are not needed at all
            >The build and finish quality is poor
            this is entirely on par with cars of the same price point, and is not unique to Teslas
            >Lots of fancy electronics that are guaranteed to be outdated (if not totally shit the bed) within 10 years
            This would be a valid point if 10 year old Teslas had electronics that were unusable. Spoiler: theyre completely fine and still on the road
            >No kinetic experience. No engine noise
            hilarious because performance cars pride themselves on "luxurious cabin noise isolation" to stay quiet because no one wants to hear that shit

            OP, I would guess Tesla is dipping for the same reason that only Tesla has any significant EV marketshare in the USA: there is only a Tesla redditor EV "enthusiast" segment in our market and that group of shriveled testes has saturated themselves with Teslas.

    this is just a guess, ofc, but imo its one of 2 things

    1) market saturation. EVs only really make sense for home-owners, ones who can afford to buy a new car, and there's a finite amount of those around.

    or

    2) the lineup isn't exciting anymore.
    -the refreshed model 3 is new and flashy, sure, but its not an SUV, so the market for it is limited
    -the model Y is pretty old at this point, and given the refreshed model 3, its reasonable to expect a Y refresh is coming soon, too.
    -the model X and S are practically ancient in terms of car years, so nobody is really excited for them anymore. plus, both of them are priced so high, they compete with much better cars (worse EVs, but much better cars overall), so they don't really make a lot of sense imo.

      Don't forget the fact that Tesla has literally never had a model without a major recall. They could get away with that when they were the only game in town for EVs. That time has passed and they now have to compete on price and quality.

    I think what happened is the Ford lightning. Specifically the multiple price increases combined with the ridiculous drop in cold weather mileage. This exposed a lot of would be electric car buyers to the reality of them. Tesla so far has relied on a market of people that wanted electric cars. But most people don't care. They want a car at a price they are willing to pay for the options. Suddenly the new potential market sees oh no I can't get electric in cold temps. That effects so many buyers. Not just electric truck buyers.

      the ford lightning and its failure really did frick up the EV utility market by highlighting the fact that really only rivian has had some breakthrough in utility minded EVs and even then they are way too expensive. from that moment on EVs just became for early adopters in the sedan or crossover market in which there are an endless number of better options in hybrids or ICE. Take awab the 0-60 from an EV and you are left with a heavy car that needs to be charged in a house due to public charging sucking, and it cant operate in temperatures that are not that perfect year round 70°F/21°c

            Going out on a limb here but I'd wager the person who did those tests never achieves EPA in any car they drive. A lot of people never do, and the EPA tests haven't been that accurate in the past especially if you look at it as "I will always get that every day".
            EPA is an annualized rating for all vehicles. Summer 30mpg highway and 27 city vs Winter 22mpg highway 19mpg city gets put into an algorithm to spit out to 25mpg on the Monroney sticker, and a lot of people will never achieve that.
            They arrive at the EV MPGe figures and 'range' ratings the exact same way.

            There is also a question of how they were getting those figures. I doubt they were very scientific about actually driving the car down to empty.
            Short trips in an EV use more energy than longer trips, because the overhead of initially getting the vehicle to temperature higher than maintaining temperature.

            The other thing about evs is if you charge to 100% and discharge to 0% you rapidly degrade the battery. So you don't have advertised range, you have 60% + emergency reserve - degradation. But with a 20 year old gas car you still can use 95% of the fuel every time with no problem and if you run it empty you just risk pump/filter issues

        My coworker drives his tesla ~ 200 miles to the other facility including some mountain driving and even in winter time he has around 30% left when he gets in. He keeps the heat set to comfy and doesn't try to conserve power. He also uses it for delivery/pickup sometimes (we get paid xx¢ per mile when using personal vehicle) that being said we are coastal, so extreme cold or heat isnt really a concern here.

          Flawed logic. ICE vehicles cover more segments like sports cars which hold their values higher. You have to compare EV against similar ICE vehicles, not just EV vs ICE.

            because any work that needs to be done on them would be equally undoable on an ICE for most users. Things like oil changes, which is the extent of what "enthusiasts" do to cars themselves, are not needed at all
            >The build and finish quality is poor
            this is entirely on par with cars of the same price point, and is not unique to Teslas
            >Lots of fancy electronics that are guaranteed to be outdated (if not totally shit the bed) within 10 years
            This would be a valid point if 10 year old Teslas had electronics that were unusable. Spoiler: theyre completely fine and still on the road
            >No kinetic experience. No engine noise
            hilarious because performance cars pride themselves on "luxurious cabin noise isolation" to stay quiet because no one wants to hear that shit
            [...]
            no its not

            Why do you fricking /n/iggers come here to shill your shitty appliances on wheels nonstop? You will not and are not convincing anyone, same as the literal troons on DA pretending it's /lgbt/ with their homosexualry. Countless threads are derailed with your EV pilpul and all it does is shit up the board with your braindead circlejerk of appliances. This anon's post

            One could write an essay on why enthusiast car communities dislike Teslas. Quick breakdown—they represent the shameless commodification of the automobile. They are soulless appliances and proud of it. Reasons I say this:

            They are next to impossible to work on yourself. While nearly any problem with a Miata can be fixed by a moron with internet access and a modest toolbox, almost every single thing that goes wrong with a Tesla warrants taking it to a dealership. The owners are ok with this because they aren’t enthusiasts, just consumers, and they couldn’t care less about the decentralization of auto repair/maintenance.

            The build and finish quality is poor. Panel gaps galore and shitty interior materials. Lots of fancy electronics that are guaranteed to be outdated (if not totally shit the bed) within 10 years. The owners (and company) don’t care because they view the automobile as a disposable appliance to be upgraded regularly.

            They are not very fun to drive. While the straight line speed is great, and they’re comfy on the highway, they’re far too heavy to be tossable in the canyons/on the track and they aren’t fun to put-put around town on a sunny day. They also aren’t worth shit off road, so there’s really no scenario where most enthusiasts wouldn’t rather have a totally different car.

            No kinetic experience. No engine noise, dead steering feel, no shifts, just zero engagement for the driver. Pretty much the opposite of a motorcycle (the single greatest form of transportation)

            They’re also just pretty gay

            hits the nail on the fricking head. Your battery powered golf cart is an APPLIANCE and in my opinion belongs on /n/ because it's SOLE and ONLY purpose is transportation from a to b - as efficiently, quietly and mindlessly as possible.
            My genuine question is why? Why do you frickers spend so much time here astroturfing?

      Bad, worse than normal cars. Most people don't want them because of bad reputation, them aging like milk, and often questionable build quality. EVs are like smartphones so they last like shit, age like milk quick because newer models get upgraded while old ones are let to become obsolete scrap, and when you buy used EV, you're taking bigger risk than buying a usual shitbox because shitbox can be fixed, while EV is computer on wheels. It's complicated to work with, and repairs are insanely difficult and expensive (changing battery can cost as much as entire car for example).
      Used EVs market is mostly flooded with shitty old Nissan Leafs and early Tesla model 3s and S'es that are absolute dogshit, and it's going to get even worse because EVs are shilled hard everywhere, pushed down the throats by governments, and because they get baked like hot cakes all the time.
      Only winners are governments, sociopaths who sell them, and lobbyists who push EVs as hard as possible.

      It depends on how you look at the actual price of the car. Is it the sale price or the sale price-the tax credit? Most people say the latter so that means the resale price pretty much starts at that point. This means on paper it looks bad because every EV takes a $7500 hit to their resale price immediately. But in reality you got this money from the government for free so it doesn't really count. EVs are comparable to every other car in terms of depreciation if you ignore this hit from the tax credit.

    I've been saying it again and again.
    EVs will never go beyond 25% adoption.
    car makers are seeing the data and doing a 180 and Focusing on hybrids .
    the charging understructure just isn't there.
    and in places like my neighborhood, you can't even support 10% of EV adoption.

    /misc/ says that evs are for city dwelling sóyboys and regular people will never adopt evs because of the low range and long charge times and how crazy and violent things will get when people a forced to wait for hours to use public charge stations especially if you're stuck in an area not populated by Asians and or whites. Evs only work if you live in a small homogeneous community and can charge overnight at home. Is /misc/ right?

      Kind of. /misc/ is right 50% of the time with 99% accuracy.
      It's true that EVs are only for city slickers and consoomers who drive short distances. Those who drive longer distances or live outside cities buy hybrids or normal/ICE cars, and generally see EVs as a joke.
      Charging is complicated. Major cities have stations with turbo charging (so charging can take less than 1 hour) but those are not that frequent and if you're outside big city, you're out of luck because you'll have to wait for at least 7 hours until it's fully charged.
      >homogenous community
      Kind of correct. Having one around Black folk or mexicans is like having a death wish. Unless you have good neighbours and don't live around browns, you're fricked. EV charging is long and requires lots of energy, and because most of infrastructures around the world are shit, it won't be viable option. Everybody will definitely end up with constant blackouts or government mandated brownouts.

    Ocam's razor.

    They are running out of redditors/basedboys to sell them to. What everyone already knew. Early adopters gonna adopt... Once they adopt, sales will slow. Most working class people who make below 100k need to be buying used cars to begin with. Not 50k~ model 3 performance. No amount of shilling, crying, or fanboying is going to put money in the pockets of potential buyers. Most people already have a favorite car or a particular brand with sovl in mind and couldn't give a shit about a tesla
    if they were to buy new. Spec sheets don't matter. Also, they are probably running out of home owners to sell to. You need to own a home or a garage to really get the most out of owning an EV.
