There’s a mathematical term that Elon uses a lot. Tesla junkies like to use it too, probably in the hopes of sounding smart. TeslaMondo has avoided it due to a distaste for buzzwords, but tonight, unfortunately, it simply *must be used*.

First, the foreplay:

**Tesla’s entire production of Roadsters amounted to 2,450 cars, from 2008 to early 2012.**

That was just a few years ago, not decades. Tesla’s growth is amazing. But let’s get back to the action:

**Last quarter it delivered 24,500 vehicles. Not last year. Last QUARTER.**

Feel an exciting mathematical tingle starting to build? Okay, here comes the money shot:

**Tesla’s Q3 2016 deliveries exceeded its total Roadster output by exactly one . . . by exactly one . . . oh the delicious agony . . . BY EXACTLY ONE . . . **

*ORDER OF MAGNITUDE!!!*

*ORDER OF MAGNITUDE!!!*

Aaaahhhhhhh. It’s finally done. TeslaMondo has lost its mathematical virginity.

Jackass

Actually it is 2 orders of magnitude: 10x more cars in 1 quarter then all cars in 10 quarters

It’s good that this post might have stimulated discussion about the meaning of order of magnitude, even if TeslaMondo looks like a possum’s pecker for failing to fully grasp it.
