Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

It seems entirely possible that parking your Tesla Model S at a shiny new Tesla supercharger station could be a great way to meet people you'd like to date.

    You can almost feel the electricity between yourselves.

    You are incorrect, there are at least as many women driving these. The ones I've spoken with just love them because they are quiet and there are no trips to those yucky gas stations.

    I have never seen more wasted articles than some of these Tesla ones. This is completely worthless. Tells us nothing about the car. Then again, this is Internet writing, not Journalism. I probably have too high of expectations.

    every time i see tesla is driving by someone with their family or some middle-age man/woman (not sure if they are married or not). Unless someone working at IT and young or famous, the chance of someone buying this and want to date someone at the supercharging station is pretty slim...

    As a 20 something single guy if I had enough money to buy and support a Tesla I think I would have enough to find other venues for picking up a date like fancy dinner parties for the rich and famous.

    everyone who owns one is married w/ kids

    think I'd be slightly intimidated by a single woman my age who drives one of these...that brings up a deeper issue with the male pysche.

    I love the Tesla, but lets face it - if I were 20-something and single with some moola, I'd likely have something like a corvette or Porsche. Why drive around with the ability to seat 7 if you're the only one? If they still made the roadster then that might be different.

    For free? You've dropped $100k on a CAR and now you're going to buy coffee. Admittedly, the coffee is a very minor expense, but you paid enough on your car to get you a decent house in many, many cities throughout the U.S. Not for free.

    All very funny, but dunning15 is right. I want to hear more about why the stone-axe-simple powertrain only lasted 10k miles.

    For free? Uh…YES.
    eclogite misses the point that the Tesla S is competitively priced among other $100,000 cars from Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, Lexus, and Porsche. The difference is that none of these other brands offer a way to "Gas up" your car for free. Only Tesla offers that. That indeed makes it the only $100,000 premium sedan that can drink" free" fuel whenever the owner wishes to make use of that pump.

    It will be more often with Model E

    I'm a single guy and I own a Model S. However, it's more of a "dude magnet" than anything else. And thinking of the 30 or so owners I've met in my area, I'd say most are married, but at least 5 are single guys, and a couple are single women. Women love the car as much as men, but the first wave of buyers seem to be primarily in the IT industry, which unfortunately leans pretty heavily male.
