Tesla Drivers Have Surpassed A Billion Electric Miles

UPenn's easier recycling process for rare earth metals reduces their environmental cost. Nissan Leaf drivers have prevented 55,000 tons of CO2 emissions in Europe alone. Tesla Model S drivers have racked up a billion miles.

Interesting news for anyone happy to see Nissan build its all-electric Leaf in America – its components are coming mainly from overseas. While the percentage of domestically produced parts in next year's Leaf will be increasing, this is a good example of how the idea of a US-made car doesn't mean as much as it used to.

If you just look at the numbers, there is something that doesn't make sense about the Nissan Leaf production facility in Smyrna, TN. After all, the automaker has been building EVs there since early this year and can make enough batteries there for over 150,000 cars a year. But, currently, the Leaf sells just 2,000 or so copies a month in the US (and all US Leafs coming from Smyrna). So why does the company have a problem supplying demand? One word: electrodes.
