Average age of a Tesla Model S owner?

Average age of a Tesla Model S owner?

Just wondering...What do you think the average age of a Tesla Model S owner is/will be? I'm 40, which I would guess would be towards the younger end of average, but by no means the youngest. What are your thoughts (not that this is relevant of anything, I was just wondering!)

So I find this interesting: a lot of owners are over 70 and some over 80, over 90.
Q: how do you get along with the touch screen? I personally cannot use it, too shaky.
Do any of you have an essential tremor and still able to drive a Tesla?

For icons near the edges of the screen I touch the frame first and then use another finger to touch the icon I want.
Most of the icons that are away from the edges of the screen are larger and easier to hit.

For anybody looking to compute an average based on numbers posted here, don't forget to consider the date posted, and adjust any posted age to reflect the difference between dates. Some of these people might have sold their Tesla, so assume an average ownership of 6 years and that 95% of Tesla owners who did replace their car did so with a Tesla. You should weigh things by assuming that 95% of the first 16 months of this thread represent posts from current owners of a Tesla and the rest replaced their cars with something else. It's fair to assume that nobody died. Or maybe it isn't but nobody claimed that this is a representative sample.

Coincidence. DickB. I lived 30 miles south of Boston and was a Mass and NH resident all my life My nickname was DickB . currently living on a Fl Island to escape NE winters I have a 2018S100D and my biggest bitch with the car is the support systems sucks. I am to old to have to talk to computer screens and press butttons. I like talking to a human. Thats not going to change in my lifetime, im going on 89. I luv the car, I have driven all Lexus LS400's since the came out. The lexus quality was great and the ride cushy but it couldnt match the performance of this car.

I bought my Tesla in end of 2016 and was 27 at the time.

sentabo | 30 december 2019

My son is 12 and he WANTS to buy a Tesla someday. Does that bring the average down?

Mathew98 | 31 december 2019

I transferred the time to my son at 17. He still doesn't have a driver's license 4 years later.

Don't even get started on why he is forbidden from getting one!

"how do you get along with the touch screen?"

Just fine, it's the little touch screen on my phone that causes me problems. (72)

I think many of the early owners were between old and dead. Average has come down, especially with second owners. Now probably just old.

Mathew98 | 31 december 2019

Speak for yourself, old man. I'm forever 25!

tes-s | 31 december 2019

We bring down the average. :)

CoinFitz | 31 december 2019

I'm 50. I read somewhere that the "typical" owner demographic is a white college-educated male over 45.

40-50 years older than those that design the UI.

marika.appell | 23 februari 2020

brent. You are a true Tesla lover!!!
Purchased my S100D in 2017 at 75. Wondering what to replace it with when the warranty runs out next year.

akikiki | 23 februari 2020

Marika, Sounds like you have the same problem I do. Is yours the car's warranty or you? Mine is me.

Haggy | 23 februari 2020

I would like to report that my own average age has gone up since I bought my Model S over five years ago. I think my average age has gone up about half as much as my actual age, if we are talking about the average over the ownership period, as opposed to my average age today.

akikiki | 23 februari 2020

Do we report this in Tesla years or regular years. I think Tesla years are about 3-4 times faster than regular years.
