How to convince my parents to sell their ICE

How do I convince my parents to sell their ICE and buy an EV???

SO | 18/02/2019

Have them test drive a Tesla.

How old are they? My ‘rents are 85 and 90 this year, the car is way too tech advanced for them to consider it.

And yet I saw an elderly couple at a service center with a Model S, so who knows.

Take them for a ride like SO says :)

I’m the parent with a Model S and Model 3. How do I convince my children to drive Teslas

As SO said, take them for a test drive.

I once ran a 5k and one 90+ year old finished in 26 minutes. This guy believes he is the oldest; could be but I wager there are some even older.

Another vote for test drive. My father is now a total Tesla fanatic.
I recommend start with a test drive in a Bolt, a Honda Clarity EV or PHEV, or a Leaf (pick 1 or 2, focus on whatever brand they're familiar with). Then get them a Tesla test drive.

Age is not a deterrent. Only ignorance.

Enlighten them with a test drive.

"How do I convince my parents to sell their ICE and buy an EV???"

What do they like about their ICEV? Show them the EVs that have those things, but are better at it.
What do they dislike about their ICEV? Show them the EVs don't have that issue.

If you want to sell them on a Tesla, first consider how well they like a smartphone or tablet - devices that work with touchscreens. If they don't like those devices but do like knobs and buttons you have a problem.
