    If you're below 25 you round up, if you're above 25 you round down. When you're over 40, you round off the whole decade.

    I turn 68 in a week. I'm already telling people I'm 70. My only regret is that it means less time to enjoy my EV. On the plus side, being one of the 99%, I have saved enough to buy the thing.

    Ah, wido, you were our only hope for the < 25 segment :smile:

    Fell into the 35 - 44 segment a few months ago.

    Well, the poll should have been started a bit earlier :( My colleague who is also going for a Model S also just turned 25...

    Already mentioned elsewhere, but I'm 70. Will be 71 before I get my Model S.

    Don't you mean how old will you be when Model S goes on sale!? 36

    I'd like to see these groups broken down into 5 year increments. 35 is a really far away from 44.

    I thought about phrasing the question as "age when you take delivery" but that adds a huge bit of uncertainty, since no one is sure of the Model S timing.

    I wanted to go by 5-year blocks, but the boards have a limited number of categories, and I wanted to make sure they were evenly spaced for easy interpretation of the graph.

    35 currently driving a BMW X5 and a Mini Clubman Cooper S. The Clubman will go for the Model S. I'm married and we have 2 children. The Tesla will become the car for trips in the Netherlands. I'm planning to keep the X5 for long trips abroad and drive it until the wheels drop off..
