The other day I went to the McDonald's near my house, and the young kid who took my money said to me "I am a total nerd, and I love your car." I responded that I was a nerd also, and love the car also.
Meanwhile, I was in Connecticut riding the Chester-Hadlyme ferry across the CT river, and there was a woman who was on the boat parked behind me. She said she knows pretty much every car logo and did not recognize the T. I told her it was a Tesla made by Tesla in California and was all Electric. She had never heard of the brand at all, so I told her a few positive things about the car. The funny thing is that she did not even ask about charging (which is what most people who find out it is all electric ask about).
Goes to show you... There are basically four classes of people out there.
1. Those who know about Tesla and absolutely love the concept and cars.
2. Those who know about Tesla and are somewhat interested, but not a fanatic.
3. Those who know about Tesla and are convinced that Tesla sucks for some stupid reason.
4. Those who do not even know about Tesla.
