Tesla is more than just a company or a car. A lot of Tesla car owners also support the company's mission to accelerate the transition to renewable energy and reduce the world's dependence on fossil fuels. This mission united the Tesla owners into one big family, who share some of these same values. But, Tesla is not just love for the mission, or a passion for high-tech cars; Tesla is a way of life, a lifestyle.
Unfortunately, not everyone understands that this is a huge aspect of what CEO Elon Musk and Tesla are offering consumers. Sometimes Tesla owners find it difficult to find a common language with those who have not experienced first hand the "Tesla vibe."
People are often afraid of what they don't understand, or that which is unfamiliar. For over 100 years, mankind has known cars that are powered by internal combustion engines, so electric cars are facing great resistance from those who are afraid of this new shift.
This is why Tesla owners who are looking for a romantic relationship might appreciate meeting people who are like-minded:
In order to help such people meet someone who will share their view and lifestyle, Ajitpal Grewal created Tesla Dating, reported Drive Tesla Canada. Tesla Dating is a dating app for Tesla owners only. To use it, the user needs to confirm that he/she owns an electric car from the California-based manufacturer.
So I went on a date today and he didn’t drive a #Tesla. Sadly, this is an issue that severely limits the available pool. Tell me to get over it, or that it’s ok to die alone. 😂🤷♀️🤓— Kim Paquette 💫 (@kimpaquette) August 13, 2020
At the moment, the application is still under development. But, in just a day, 160 people signed up for Tesla Dating. Grewal said that the idea of creating this app came to him when he realized that Tesla owners talk a lot about their cars, Elon Musk, and the environment--conversation that is not only mutually understood, but also supported and desirable.
“It became a big part of their identity, and they shared a lot of the same values, like wanting to reduce their impact on the environment, stanning Elon Musk, or appreciating high tech. Suddenly it hit me, these people would be perfect for each other," he said.
In order to register in the app, you must provide a photo of yourself in your Tesla. Only after that, you can set up your dating profile, which will include the model and configuration of your Tesla. After registration, the application will offer you some profiles to check out, and go from there.
Who knows? You might just find a great fit--and either way the sparks will fly.
Editor's Take: Personally, all I can think about is who gets to date the Roadster gal/guy?
