US drivers average around 13,500 miles per year. Top-selling non-pickups are small crossovers, small SUVs, compact cars, midsize cars and midsize SUVs.

UK drivers average around 7,100 miles per year. Top-selling vehicles are subcompacts, compacts, and small crossovers.

The top-selling subcompact in the USA had just under 70,000 sales, less than the top-selling subcompact in the UK.

Why would you expect a US electric car manufacturer in the premium segment to focus on small, short-to-mid-range BEVs when the US market buys larger cars and drives many more miles per year?
