Hate to say it but this has generally been my experience in my area as well. It’s usually some nervous developer who looks like he’s holding on for dear life.Subaru and most other ICE group owners stopped waving, honking, RPM blipping or exhaust droning years ago.
Tesla owners typically don't care, few are enthusiasts or gear heads, grease monkeys. And fewer still want to make eye contact or talk (pre and post COVID).
No big loss.
Love the wave. We now have 3 model 3's in the hood, 2 Zoe's, one Leaf and 2 BMW 3i's.
I think that people that buy s model 3 here are just happy people. They tend to put solar
arrays on the roof as well.
Of course there is the wave we give to the bad drivers, tail gaters, and aholes on the road.
It is done by pressing the right foot firmly on the (gas) pedal.
...I've encountered people that are NOT driving Teslas do the "hands in the air" wave as I drive pass or by them...
