    What is the purpose of this survey? Are you affiliated with some group?

    I am a high school student. I am just curious on who is buying the Model S. Also when people say that Tesla is only for the top 1 percent, I think by the 200 responses I have gotten that that is wrong, its just cool to see the results. I am also a TSLA investor

    My age falls exactly on one of the cut offs (which is duplicated by two fields). How should I respond?

    You should change the first "miles per day" option to "<20" rather than ">20"

    With 111 responses I can report that the average cost of a Tesla Model S owner's car is just under 47,000
    That means that on average people are buying a more expensive car than normal!

    Only 30% of Model S owners drive with range in mind. 70% use the performance as it was meant to be used.

    Average Kwh per mile used:
    <.25014%
    .250-.350415%
    .350-.4501659%
    >.45027%

    Miles traveled Every day on average:
    <20519%
    20-30830%
    30-401037%
    40-5027%
    50+27%
    75% of owners invest in Tesla and 20% are too low on cash because of the car to do so.

    Very interesting results, I'll keep posting them

    Please don't bump just for the sake of it. Is there some reason you want to push this thread to the front?

    My guess is that he's just trying to get more responses. The bump is a pretty common occurrence on most other forums. Then again, this isn't most other forums.

    There is also a much more subtle way to bump something like writing a sentence about what you've found and asking for more input than 'bump'.

    Is "bump" not the appropriate technique and a banable offense?

    No and no. (Although repeated pointless posts will likely incur moderation).

    Survey's misleading, I'll warn you. Some of us have low incomes but high assets. I definitely qualify as part of the 1% by assets, I just don't realize much income each year.

    So what do people really spend on Options?

    I made a quick survey to find how much people are really spending on options and other stuff: Cost of your options, View on Tesla
    I post results after a couple of people
