See the text in the image, above. Looks like they asked about more than just buying another one.

If that survey is anything like most customer satisfaction surveys, the entire result is based on the answer to 1 question "would you recommend x to friends or family".

Not when he said it would be $35K before any credits.

I’m game with allowing inflation adjustments.

I love my 2013 Fit. If it died today I'd look hard for another 2nd gen Fit to replace it with. But I don't have any friends that I'd recommend it to.

Yeah, those surveys are a stupid industry standard. I recently took a class on building and administering a Citrix Xenapp/Xendesktop environment. The survey asked if I would recommend the class to my friends and family. Why would I do that? If I had a tooth extraction, would I recommend my friends and family get a tooth extraction too?

Then there's companies like Comcast. How likely am I to recommend Comcast to someone; extremely likely. Is it because of my wonderful experience with them? Heck no. It's just that if I have to choose between Hitler or Lenin, then I have to go with the lesser of 2 evils. My recommendation is no indication of my level of satisfaction.

Still, I don't have any better way of determining customer satisfaction, except for simply observing where people spend their money. I mean, does Apple need customer sat surveys to tell if their phones are selling?

3,000 per week to Europe.

One reason for the Tesla layoffs in the US is a drop in deliveries for the Model 3 - in the US.
As was reported months ago Tesla planned on bringing 3,000 Model 3'a week to the port of Zeebrugge, Belgium. They'll arrive ready to run, but on a low charge, so the port has no less than 300 chargers to charge them up before they get distributed.
Tesla even plans on providing power to the moored car ships so they don't have to run their aggregates for power in the harbor.

The Model 3s come with European CCS charge plugs to make use of the fast charging network.
Some CCS fast chargers go all the way up to 175 kW, and when a fresh Model 3 owner decided to use one of those it delivered no less than 126 kW to the car, charging it from about 10% to 45% SOC in under 13 minutes.


In other news, a Model 3 featured in probably the first full-electric pull over....

Apparently, the Model 3 is more profitable than people thought:
