Mississippi has finally joined the Tesla Model S revolution that has swept across all 50 US states.

The Model S Has Now Invaded All 50 US States

The Model S Has Now Invaded All 50 US States

As Edmunds reports, Mississippi was the “lone holdout preventing coast-to-coast bragging rights,” but now even Mississippi shows at least one registered Model S.

8 months ago, there was at least one Model S registered in 49 US states.  Just a couple of months ago (data wasn’t made publicly available until a few days ago though), a resident of Jackson, Mississippi bought a Model S, which gives Tesla the right to now say its Model S has logged sales in all 50 US states.

Per Edmunds:

“The Model S initially launched in California, where the first models were registered in June 2012. Soon after, the vehicle saw rapid state expansion with 42 states plus the District of Columbia reporting Model S registrations by the year’s end. The 2nd-to-last state to see the electric vehicle registered was West Virginia in April 2013. With Mississippi reporting the sole registration in November, it took a year and a half for a Tesla Model S to hit every state.”

How’s that compare to the Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt?  As Edmunds states:

“In comparison, the Nissan Leaf took slightly longer – 23 months – to infiltrate the nation with North Dakota finally showing up to the party. The Chevrolet Volt, a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, took 11 months before a sale was registered in every state with Montana and South Dakota providing the finale.”

So, there’s now at least 3 plug-in vehicles that are showing registrations in all 50 US states.

Of course it would be a Southern State… Good news for a company that does not air TV commercials. 🙂

There might be more sales of EV’s in general if there were more commercials for them. Can’t remember the last time I saw one for the Volt or LEAF.

Data seems dated. Atlanta got almost 1,000 LEAF sales in December alone.

I’m in Jackson, but there’s no way I could afford this. The owners of one of the state’s solar companies has a Tesla Roadster, and I routinely see a couple of Leafs about town. Looking forward to seeing more.

Wow, that’s kind of sad how long it to for Volt and Leaf. They do have some drawbacks from my point of view: Volt is okish, but I just can’t stand GM really, they have no attention to details whatsoever, thier cars are like cheap kitchen appliences, but Volt is actually thier only car that did cross my mind. LEAF – ugly and wondering about how long the batteries will last, Model S – out of my price range. Result – Drooling over Model E and hoping that 40K will get my a decently specced one with 200-mile range 🙂

I think states like Montana and the states around it where always going to be last ones to get EV’s in general do to the vast rural spaces in between the towns in those areas. At least with Tesla they are over coming this rural area with a large system of super chargers.

Montana’s got SC for the Tesla. We generally don’t see those planned in the Deep South until 2016.

Having seen my range drop when the temps do the same, it would take a true believer to buy an electric car on the Hi Line of Montana where temps can drop below zero for weeks. If your car dies in between towns it can be a long time before another benighted fool ventures along the same bit of highway. From my home town, there is empty road then a town of sorts 17 miles to the north, 24 miles to the nearest town to the east, 29 miles to the west and you can’t go south, no roads. And when the snow blows, people with common sense stay home. It is so treacherous there, that if you pull over to take a pee, a passing car will usually ask if you need help, because they don’t to hear about someone dieing of exposure when they turn on the radio the next day.
I love my Volt, but I am not sure I would want it to be my only car on the Hi Line.
Now down in Montana’s “Banana Belt” around Billings, they might get a good bit more popular.

I’m hoping they connect Atlanta, GA to Birmingham, AL and across to Dallas, TX with Superchargers less than 200 miles apart by the time I get to buy a Gen III car.

The end of 2015 map shows Atlanta > Montgomery(160 miles) > Jackson (250). From there it looks like you’ll have to go to Baton Rouge>Beaumont and then back north, or take a more circuitous route to Memphis>Little Rock, Fort Smith, OK City, etc. No idea why Shreveport, LA isn’t on the map.

I want to see an entire dark green map of America.

So does Elon.

I already think of the reverse map that would show the first states where zero pure thermal vehicle were registered over the last year.
