Recent geo-political things have helped. But I’m on a forum for gas and electric, with many “true” Texans, as they see themselves, and they now treat Austin as though it’s California.I have a very small sample size, personal bias, etc., but here in Texas I'm sensing a pro-Tesla vibe as of late. The fact that Tesla is building a plant in Texas, and not California (boo!) is the reason.
Tesla’s are generally good cars, so the hate should slowly erode as more of these people actually become familiar with EVs and Tesla.
A previous poster asked why care or try to inform? Kind of an odd question on an EV forum. EVs are a passion and conviction. I hate those that are only against Tesla and EVs because of ignorance
