Agree with all of this. Two additional points I'd like to add.
1. You've not seen my mother-in-law doing laundry. That dryer absolutely is capable of being run 5+ hours per day!! :)
2. I think the average commute is something like 30-ish miles? Even if we round up to 40 as an average, that...
If nothing else, this is a very solid bit of evidence that we Tesla fans will pour ourselves over EVERY PIXEL OF EVERY IMAGE Tesla releases.
