First, a disclaimer. I recognize some of you Model S drivers are older...I mean..more mature (I respect my elders!) No Model S driver is a fuddy duddy, so have no fear--you're safe. But I had an experience after work the other day--another bright sign for Tesla in the future. I often find that the greatest resistance to Tesla comes from a certain older, more established, more stubborn generation (if I can take the liberty to generalize for a moment). In the military, we called this group the ROAD generation--Retired On Active Duty. But the young'ens really love this car. Pulled into my driveway after work the other day and a girl was walking down my driveway toward me (my driveway's a little long). She's in college--a good looking mechanical engineering student--and was crazy about Tesla! She knew everything about them! Superchargers, fires and their effect on TSLA, the frunk, the touchscreen, the specs...everything. (Turns out she's a friend of my wife's cousins). She said she followed me (lives a few roads down in my subdivision) so she could admire the car. I told her to take a seat. "No way, really?" she asked. (I thought that reaction was funny. I said she could sit in the car. I wasn't GIVING her the car!) So I showed her the touchscreen, talked about the car, then asked if she wanted a ride. "Oh my God, my friends are going to be so jealous!" So I took her for a brief ride, floored it a few times, and saw that Tesla Grin. After pulling back into our subdivision, I pulled over, parked it, and put the hazards on. Then I just turned and looked at her. She looked puzzled. So I said "Wanna drive it?" "No way, you have to be kidding! Nobody's going to believe this!" I wasn't. I told her to jump into the driver's seat. "Just get in and buckle up. Don't touch anything yet." After I got in, I told her to feel for the location of the pedals...then to put it in gear and give it a few electrons. She was driving timidly. This pedal is made to be stomped upon. "No, gun it." I said. "I don't want to drive hard in your car. "No really, I want you to feel it." She pressed a little harder on the pedal. "Ok, stop the car. Now...I really mean it. GUN it. Pedal to the floor." She stomped. She loved. She is now convinced forever. We got to talking about babysitting (because my wife and I need a sitter!) and we exchanged info because she's probably going to babysit for us. Now she was obviously a Tesla fan already, so this wasn't a "conversion" per se. But what I really found interesting was what happened afterward. She went home and posted the following status to her Facebook page: "Tonight, I drove a Tesla." The coolest thing? She got TONS of amazed and excited responses from her college-aged friends. Tesla and EVs have a bright future indeed.
