Default Model S is everywhere - just saw 3 in Atlanta

Have been in Atlanta for all of 3 hours and have already seen three different Model S - it's the new Prius!

Yeah there are 3 in my neighborhood.
more exclusive to have a karma, but exclusivity has its own costs: parts, service ...

Silicon Valley (Santa Clara County) has the bulk of S-Models right now. The policymakers are obviously taking notice: http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/201...electric-cars/.

This bodes well for the future of EVs.

They are so popular here in the Bay Area that they are already involved in accidents, I caught one with a large hit on the rear fender/wheel area..

Extremely popular in the Orange County area too, I see many on a daily basis. The darker gray color with graphite looking wheels is pretty slick...........

During my daily drive from San Francisco to Cupertino, I see at least four of them, not counting the one owned by one of my colleagues.

There are now 2 in the Vail area. One in my neighborhood and the other owned by a hotel in the village. I still have the only Karma though (except for some guy from Miami that brings his up for the summer).

Mine is parked right outside of Lifetime Fitness in Sandy Springs. Want a ride? Or we could take a roadster.

I live in a little town in CT called Monroe (right next to Newtown since sadly everyone knows where that is now) and there is one in town and I have seen at least 3 others passing through...they've become very common place for sure.

They are pretty common and, fortunately, we can all get along just fine.
