Global Tesla Fleet Exceeds 3.5 Billion Electric Miles
The global fleet of Teslas continue to rack up the miles at an exponential rate.
Back in June of 2015, the fleet hit 1 billion miles. Since then, the fleet has racked up more than 3.5 billion miles, which provides Tesla with all sorts of data that it can utilize to improve, among other things, its Autopilot operation.

A look back at the numbers shows that 2 billion was achieved less than a year after 1 billion and that 3 billion came only 6 months after 2. Now, with this latest 3.5 billion figure, we see that it was achieved less than 3 months after 3 billion.
4 billion will likely come in just over 2 months. As Auto Evolution points out:
"With a nearly 200,000-strong fleet, Tesla is now adding tens of million of miles each day, and the best part for the company is that most of its vehicles are also gathering data for its autonomous driving program an incredibly valuable resource these days."
"But the real spike in this graph is yet to come. With a planned production of 500,000 units per year, the Model 3 will be for the Models X and S what they, in turn, have been for the Roadster. Soon, keeping track of the number of miles is going to be futile..."
