    When will the number of Model S on the road exceed Roadsters?

    We must be close to Model S drivers outnumbering Roadster drivers. Approx 2400 Roadsters delivered .... anyone want to take a guess as to when Model S is the dominant Tesla vehicle on the road?

    I was thinking about that the other day. What was the delivery target for 2012? 3k? I imagine Model S > Roadster sometime this month. Dec 24th is my WAG.

    Giving it more thought I'd say it already is the dominant vehicle on the road in the US.

    Many of the 2400 were sold in Europe/Canada/Asia, and some are garage queens. With >1500 on the road already in the US it is likely the dominant vehicle already.

    As of Dec 23rd, Model S will be the dominant Tesla on the road in Canada as well.

    It's gotta be soon - there are Model S VINSs > 2400. The deliveries happening now seem to be in the VIN ranges of 15nn - 18nn so it's likely a couple of weeks until Model S's take over the road.

    Will we have a month soon where the Model S "outsells" the Nissan Leaf or Chevy Volt?
    ~1600 might do it.

    You bet. If it doesn't happen this month, January/Feb is a sure bet. (Especially since typical auto sales would lag in those months and Tesla will be pushing out cars at full speed).

    That would be a great headline: "Tesla's $100K electric car outsells all others in December!"

    But since TM doesn't release sales numbers we may never have a public figure to coo over.

    I have a feeling they might once their factory is producing cars at a 'stable' rate. It would not be good information to release during startup or building cars by hand. But it is something I feel they will start to do once they get their production all streamlined (maybe Q2 of 2013)
