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!)

mkent | 24 augusti 2012

By the time my car arrives, I will be 50.

mike | 24 augusti 2012

49 but going on 30 :-)

Brian H | 24 augusti 2012

It was sargun who asked the question! He wants to know if he's Least Among Equals. ;)

Theresa | 24 augusti 2012

I hate to rain on your grammar parade Brian but so far you have never spelled my name correctly. Must be going downhill fast!!! Looks like we need a new grammar cop! ;)

Brian H | 24 augusti 2012

Actually, I just did on another thread. Tho there!

Theresa | 24 augusti 2012

I was a few steps behind you. I posted there as well that you did finally get it right.

Brian H | 24 augusti 2012

Tho I thee!

hammy16 | 24 augusti 2012

S1006 74 years (might raise the average a bit.)

sargun | 24 augusti 2012

Yep. I am the 21 year-old who asked the question. I wonder if I'm the youngest, or just the youngest on here.

TSLAPWR | 24 augusti 2012

63 when it arrives!

Laurence1 | 24 augusti 2012

I guess I am the old man in the group. I am 80 1/2 but my wife will be 79 when she gets her model S. I am a previous sucessful aurocross driver. I drive about 2500 miles a month and expect to use the Signiture Series for all of it. I guess that makes our average age for the two cars at around 79 3/4. Can anyone top that?

44 expecting delivery Feb or Mar 2013

Is this the longest running thread here?

Oh, heck no!

E.g. Model S Reservation Tally! Going since April 2011, has 1475 replies.

mitrabbit | 24 augusti 2012

You have inspired me.I will be 72 when my S arrives. 2500 miles per month!?
Wow! Where How Why so many miles? You do get around. What a great vehicle to use over all those miles. What charging method will you be using?

Brian H | 25 augusti 2012

As far as overall youngest, only TM will ever know. Way less than 10% of owners use this site. <200 on this list, 12,000 reservers, we're at <2% sample so far.

Laurence1 | 25 augusti 2012


It is encouraging to to inspire a person. I am an Oncologist that serves smaller hospitals around Indianapolis, 4 of which are over one hundred miles from home, thus and am on the road over 200 miles a day on many days a month. Indianapolis Power and Light has a pilot program for electric car owners under which they will install a charging system with a separate meter at a cujstomer's home or office to charge at off peak hours at $0.2247 per kW hr. Since I am getting the 300 mile model, I can just charge each night but am negotiating with 2 of the hospitals for charging stations at their facility for my car and others as they come.

I am 66 but will probably be 67 when my Blue MSP arrives in November. In fact it just might arrive for my 67th birthday! Now that would be my best birthday present ever!!

jackhub | 25 augusti 2012

Laurence1. I am 77. It is wonderful to have someone to look up to in these forums!

prash.saka | 25 augusti 2012

@Teoatawki, oh yeah, I forgot about that one. MichiganModels did a very good job keeping track of all the numbers.

@Laurence1, good luck buddy.

Anonymous | 25 augusti 2012

45 when I reserved, 47 now, and hoping to get it for my 48th birthday next April.

Passion & Patience!


eurobeaR | 25 augusti 2012

@Laurence: Only in America! Where else would you find Oldtimers like yourself ordering such a car and driving so many miles in it? Really really cool - good luck!

J King | 27 augusti 2012

58.5 expecting delivery in November.

mfcnova | 27 augusti 2012

I will be 43 when I take delivery, I was 41 when I reserved. Laurence, you rock!

oyvind.hestnes | 29 augusti 2012

28 now. 29 (or close to 30) when taking delivery next summer/fall.

StevenP | 3 september 2012

P140 will be 55 when Model S arrives 11/2012, SW of Boston. A meetup would be superb!

phb | 3 september 2012

30 now, more likely than not, 31 at delivery.

Dmetcalf | 3 september 2012

Just turned 43.

Brian H | 3 september 2012

At 185 "participants", average has edged up to 46.8; waiting is making everyone older!

ahimberg | 3 september 2012


cerjor | 3 september 2012

Brian H: What is the standard deviation of the ages?

mdennick | 3 september 2012

I'm right there in the middle, 46.5.

Dr. Laurence, you da man.

Brian H | 3 september 2012

previously (p. 6) lobo426 computed SD=12.74. Prob'ly still pretty close.

Davidinkl | 4 september 2012


mw | 4 september 2012

43, can't wait to get my S hopefully in October. I'm not having a MLC, just want the coolest and greenest car I can get. Already downsized the house so this was the next step! I want to retire from corporate life around 50.

William Jones | 4 september 2012

I am 44, but will be 45 when I receive my vehicle in November/December.

ReeceWeb | 4 september 2012

45 at the moment, but waiting for my S to arrive is aging me quickly. I expect it to arrive just after my 46th bday. I hope to feel much younger once I get behind the wheel ;)

Oreo | 4 september 2012

Just a few weeks away from my 39th.
With an EU-P1206 reservation I fear I won't get my S until after my 40th bitrhday.

prash.saka | 4 september 2012

May be we should start a thread where we talk about what our professions are.

Hey, who knows, this way, we can build business contacts.

Joshua Burstyn | 4 september 2012

My husband and I are both 32. However I think he will be 33 by the time we accept delivery.

kidheme | 4 september 2012

I will bring up the average a bit. 56 now and if everything goes as scheduled with P2636, 56 when my car is built

kafahsholtz | 4 september 2012

47, but I'll be 48 when it shows up in the driveway...

Volker.Berlin | 5 september 2012

May be we should start a thread where we talk about what our professions are. (prash.saka)

There is one already, you could revive it if you like:
