    For multiple Tesla I like either a Field of Tesla or Coil:)

    Plural for Leaf, as I have heard it is simply Leafs.

    I would expect that a larger ratio of ELR owners on a Volt forum were Volt owners, than the true ratio.
    You might get a better sampling of ELR owners from the ELR forum.

    That said, I have heard...

    I always take these articles with a grain of salt. For example, I haven't heard of the 30% price cut on top of the 30% cut in 2017 and suspect the author made a mistake.

    Do you have anything on that since they announced this today?
    I am curious if the earlier driver wasn't simply beyond the 50,000 mile warrantee, and will now get their money back?

    I did not realize GM covered their drive unit as well. That is very cool.
    I must say though, as someone who is driving 20,000+ miles/year, that unlimited mileage is nice :)

    Tesla doesn't think they will sell that many either, as their guidance and CEO statements show.
    People misreading or misreporting data is what gets these things started.

    While I would agree that spending time at the Tesla service center is a pleasant way to pass the time, I don't spend any time at the service center.
