Coworker asked if I could show her 10 year old nephew the inside of my 3 (he’s apparently a Tesla fan). I say sure but how about a test ride too? She says He would love that! So she takes me by her office and her nephew is there with his brother and her two sons. Hahaha. It was going to be a full car.
Here’s where I started to get real impressed with these kids (age range from 8-12): as we walk to the car, they are asking all sorts of excited questions and they’re using the right terminology! None of this “Does your car drive by itself?” nonsense, no, they knew to ask “Does your car have Autopilot?”
“Can you show us Summon?”
“Show us the air conditioning screen with the air flow!”
“How fast can it get to 60?”
“How many miles do you get when you charge it?”
“It must be great to not need gas.”
“Everything runs through that screen, right?”
This was impressive; smart kids knew their Teslas. Unlike some adults who ask less informed questions.
During the ride, the first time in a Tesla for all four, they were squealing with every launch, loved the smoothness and relative quietness, and of course Fart mode and Beach Buggy Racing were big hits. I think Fart mode got more Oohs and Aahs than AP. Lol!
After the ride, they were chatty and excited, and later that evening, my coworker sent a picture of her two sons sitting at the computer: one was on the Tesla configuration page, the other was sitting next to him with pad and pencil. My friend said they were figuring out how much money they’d need to save to buy one, and what kind of job they’d need to earn enough money to save. : )
Like I said, these were some smart kids!
