Seriously, I have some patents myself ... that maybe, gives me a bit more insight into what gets a patent, and these days, it doesn't take much.
You're grasping at straws with your arguement

Technology may move incrementally or exponentially, but it still moves. Sometimes the incremental movements pave way for the breakthroughs.

The point is that Tesla, and many others, continue to innovate. Whether evolutionary, revolutionary, or both, they are contributing. The patent list is simply tangible evidence that they're out there developing technologies and not simply buying parts off the shelf from other suppliers and slapping it together just to take YOUR hard-earned tax dollars.

And remember, the list above is ONLY from 2012. Much of the important groundwork for today's S sedan would have been done long before.
