40 Thousand Miles In A Tesla Model X

My daily driver is a 2016 Tesla Model X 90D. Although the term 'daily driver' doesn't mean as much as it used to since I work from home nowadays #pandemic. I've done annual reviews of the vehicle each year since I purchased it, you can see them here: 1, 2, 3, 4. 

Painted Hills biking adventure with our Model X

This is not an annual review, it's just a quick post, not for an annual milestone, but for an actual mileage milestone. The odometer just rolled over 40 thousand miles. A record by no means; but these miles have been fun. We drove to Grants Pass in the winter, the Painted Hills in the desert of eastern Oregon in the summer, brought home an Xmas tree on the roof, we pulled our camper, went to Comic-Con in San Diego, to Crater Lake, the Oregon Caves, through a wildlife safari, to a butterfly pavilion, and to Thor's Well on the Oregon coast. We used biohazard mode during the Oregon fires. And it was all fueled by free Superchargers and the solar panels on our roof.

I've continued to track the battery degradation. As you can see in the graph below, it has started to level off. 

The other degradation charts that I've shared were time-based. This one is mileage-based. Here's to 40 thousand more miles of fun before I upgrade to a 2025 Model X with full self-driving

Disclosure: I'm long TSLA
