    Hi everyone,

    Why We're Launching the First $50,000 Incentive Program for 100 Tesla Model 3 Owners with Children Who Are Learning to Drive

    [​IMG]

    Our big idea here is to get teens interested in clean electric vehicles. Incentivizing teens to get some behind-the-wheel experience with a Tesla Model 3 is a way to show them what great potential (no pun intended) electric cars have. We are excited to be the first private organization to offer such incentive to Model 3 owners and we hope other companies will follow.

    Andrei

    Great initiative! Would be nice to see more of this initiatives around the world, to educate future drivers to a greener driving. Shame there aren't that many low cost EV's yet, because when teenager start to learn to drive in an EV I suspect they won't ever want to drive an ICE daily.

    We plan on our 10 year old son learning to drive on either our 2014 Leaf, or a Model 3.

    We have a Model X and a Leaf, and depending on when our Model 3 reservation comes up, may replace the Leaf with a Model 3.

    Only gasoline vehicle left is a 2005 Prius, that we plan to sell soon, and it does not get any use at all.

    I hope people are turning on valet mode to limit power before letting teens who can barely drive get behind the wheel.

    Model 3 proof of purchase -- that's the only think going against me.

    Please upload proof of your Tesla Model 3 purchase*
    A document with your name and your vehicle's specifications, including the final price.


    My daughter got her G1 and is so excited about our household acquiring a Tesla but we are in Ontario so June is likely the delivery date for any model, haha.

    The incentive program is valid for 2017-18.

    But only to the first 500 who have young adult drivers so these will all be in the US West Coast.

    i dont think this is particularly good idea. EVs do drive quite different to ICE cars and on top of that you will not be able to sit your test with a manual gearbox.

    My 8 year old niece asks me whenever I see her if I got my car yet. I told her that she could drive it when I do get it. She is really excited and knows more about how Autopilot works then some owners.
