Thought I would go ahead and get a thread going representing southern Alabama!

Really hope that the Model 3 will start turning the tide of EV sales here in Alabama. The presence of EV cars is nearly non-existent here and it sucks.

Now we wait..

I live in North AL, on weekends I frequently travel to Huntsville. While there, I'm always on the lookout for an EV. I include the Volt in my search for an EV. On occasion, I'll see a Volt, Leaf or i-MiEV. I even see a Tesla now and again, but I have to look a lot more carefully as they are less "distinctive" from some other cars.

Not really having fun with the "Now we wait.." part though, but I refuse to throw in the towel. Waiting since April 5th and expecting another year and a half. Sigh....

Thanks for starting this thread. It's nice to know Alabama is represented here!

I'm a Model 3 owner as of last week, and I'm the only one I know of around here. Wish I had some company!

I've been the lone-wolf Model 3 owner in Dothan since April. I feel like the spoiled only child that gets all the attention. It's pretty interesting getting asked about your car at red lights.

NW FL here. Pensacola. Hey Dothan! Not too far away. I've had my Model 3 for almost 2 months. It is pretty cool when people ask about the car. Lots of heads turning and people staring at traffic lights. And the occasional, "Hey! How do you like that car?"

I know of at least 2 other Model 3s within about 20 miles. I've seen 1 parked along the street downtown. Fairly routine ( 2 to 3 times a month) to see a Model S or X out on the road.

Hey Mobile and Dothan. If you ever get wind of any kind of get together / soiree / shindig, etc ... with Model 3 owners that's not too far away, let me know. It might be cool to go to something like that.
