    In terms of annual production, might as well add Lamborghini (~2k annually). Outproducing Bentley is imminent (~9k annually).

    (OP was probably talking about total production.)
    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...

    According to Autoblog (link: http://www.autoblog.com/2013/01/03/2...eback-edition/) Lambo only sold a couple of hundred last year. I believe these numbers are from the actual manufactor's so I'm confident they are accurate. That being said, the most surprising is Land Rover (inclusive of Range Rover) only being 43,xxx.

    Tesla can easliy outproduce Lambo, Bently, Maserati and Jaguar, and that will theoretically happen this year!

    The Delorean was a good car, stainless steel & all that. But that is a lot of cannibalisation.

    [A large number of the original cars are still on the road after over 30 years; most estimates put it at 6,500 cars surviving out of just over 9,000 built.]

    Nissan currently has the record for number of all-electric cars sold in a calendar year, beating all the 19th / early 20th century companies. Tesla will probably not beat Nissan's record in 2013, but it will come close. (And for total cars sold, Nissan has a year's head start, basically.)

    However, Tesla will probably beat the record for number of all-electric cars sold in a calendar year *in the US* in 2013.
    I take "Electro", my amazing Model S, to the train station: yes, it's a station wagon
