Does anyone know the percentage of non Tesla owners that are members of this forum?
I was just wondering the same thing!
The site stat shows: Members 30,711 Active Members 5,610
My WAG would be of the active members maybe 50% are owners. Of the non-active members probably less than 10% are owners. A lot of people are waiting for Model 3 or Model X.
Run a poll. That's a sure way to get to The Truth™. I'll help with the results of your poll. I'm not an owner. :wink:
Not an owner unfortunately. Even the Model 3 will be extremelly expensive for me
Not an owner. Working at JLR but a Tesla fan!:love:
Not an owner. Young college student. Mainly lurking absoring the detailed analysis pieces.
For a poll perhaps categories for non-owners? I'm in the "contemplating Model-S" category, but I imagine there are others who would be buyers at Model-3 price-point, although if you have a category for "Shafted by, and leaving, VW" I'd tick that instead.
I'm not an owner either, but the Model 3 will probably arrive at the time I need to purchase a new vehicle. It will be my first consideration.
Of course if I win the lottery, I'll have to find a garage to house the Tesla S and X I would buy.
I would include this catagory in the poll also : "Was a member of the forum when I did not own a tesla, and own a tesla now".
I think a high percentage of people started as non Tesla owners and own a Tesla now.
Non owner here. I think most owners have their Tesla car details in their signature.:smile:
1st mistake: start reading TMC
2nd mistake: create a TMC userid so threads can actually be followed, creating more reading.
3rd mistake: test drive. This makes resistance to assimilation very close to futile.
Best decision ever made (well... except for a few other best decisions): caution to the winds and purchase completed
I started off with that. I was pretty set on getting one anways, just needed some advice/questions/etc. answered.
... me, a week ago
... me, a couple of days ago
Booked for next week. I daren't extrapolate ...
I'd gues the percentage of members that are owners is pretty small. Maybe 10-20%. However the owners post significantly more and stay active much longer than non-members, so I'd bet that the majority of posts are by owners.
Now I need to learn how to make a poll.
If you do, it would be interesting to know why people aren't owners yet. As my sig says, I'm saving for a Model S, but many who don't own are waiting for another model to become available. I think some people are just investors and are here for the financial part of the forum. Others are just interested in the technology, but even a Model 3 would be a stretch for them financially.
I fall into the long-time lurker, long-time MX reservation holder, finally gave up and bought a MS category. Wish I hadn't waited so long. The CPO program pulled me over the edge.
See sig. Price (and the large size doesn't help).
