    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.

    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.
