Thursday evening I was going to a favorite bar and restaurant and passed two families chatting in the parking lot. A 10 year old called out, "There is a Tesla!" pointing to my Std Rng Plus Model 3. This is not the first time I've seen kids under 25 who pointed to my car and called it "a Tesla."

I never worried about EVs but this consistent recognition by young people shows how it works.

I got my M3 in Sept 2018 and had it backed in the driveway at my inlaws, where we were relaxing while my wife and her 2 nephews answered the door. One of the kids trick-or-treating said, "we really like your Tesla!", which caught me by surprise. Like you, I'm used to adults, not children, complementing my Tesla.

Here in Chicago....MANY kids call out about Tesla's. Many adults with them just look at their kids like they are strange.

I believe kids are more astute concerning cars / technology these days.

More than 40 years ago when my wife and I both had Pontiac TransAms (I had a white '75 400-4sp, my wife had a navy '74 400-auto), my wife remembers stopping at a 4-way stop and a 6 y.o. boy walked by with his mom, "oh, I've always wanted a TransAm just like that one". Of course this was probably right after Smokey and the Bandit made TA's famous. So it's been going on for years.
