Why do rich people love Teslas

I work in a hospital, nearly half of the high earning workers (doctors, PAs, RNs, etc) drive a tesla. They're not even the expensive model S, but cheaper 40k model 3s and Ys. What's the fricking appeal. Is it considered a rich person brand? They can literally buy much nicer actual luxury cars. Here in SoCal all the upper middle class whites and Asians are obsessed with teslas

    >Why do Californians follow trends harder than sheep follow each other
    I have a theory and it has nothing to do with the shitty brand selling a terrible product in a shiny silver case with more marketing than actual R&D and innovation based on how Californians got everyone to buy an iphone and ruin the entire internet.

      It’s simply an I phone on wheels. Just like people with disposable income in the west pay 1,500$ for a new I phone every year that can’t do anything their old one can’t, they buy a Tesla because it’s currently “in” and seen as technologically advanced though it does nothing their older car can’t do.

      because commiefornia and other hot barren shitholes is the only places that EV’s will ever actually work.

      >enter any cold climate and the batteries shit themselves
      >middling performance in temperate climates that reach below zero.
      >no proper incentives in other areas or cost weighs “benefits”
      >gasoline and diesel are infinitely more effective and cost effective in cold shitholes and temperate climates that plunge below 0 during winter or have long commutes
      >those doctors realize that they can just take gubbymint handouts and pay dirt cheap “California electricity” compared to gas costs to charge what is the equivalent of a iPad with shitty pleather and interior on wheels.
      >Im 100% sure if they’re doing a long drive to another state they’re using a gasoline vehicle.

      They’re only doing it cause it saves money, it’s not “muh luxury” and wasting money on luxury cars that’ll shit out and cost more than a 20k+ battery replacement and “muh Tesla” (60-70k for Tesla and battery compared to 70k+ and repair costs and expensive California shithole premium gas) is moronic anyways.

      If California didn’t tax the shit out of their gasoline more people would be driving gasoline, but since gas is stupid expensive and electricity is barely “cheaper” electricity ends up winning over for short term commutes in a heat ridden shithole due to cost benefit analysis

      I’ll reiterate again that the actually wealthy dodge taxes and the moment those subsidies/tax exemptions for “muh climate muh world!” are removed and gas drops price, people will be using gas again. (Heavy industry owned by corporations does the damage not the individual for “muh emissions” and “chemical pollution” )

      But they are cars for people who hate cars tbh. I’m a doctor and the other doctors who own them are all into then ‘with me’ since I like cars but it’s like ‘so futurist can fast’. Of course I’m polite but the other guys I track day with don’t give a frick about Tesla, known they’re not useful for going fast and generally don’t talk about cars that way. They’re into pagid racing brakes and complaining about some stuff like the LSD in the corvette being annoying.

      Just mostly it’s non cars guys feeling competitive or like they short cut into the hobby.

      This is also true. It’s not the 1970s anymore. Any doctor infer 45 has no money

    Because Tesla being expensive is a meme. It costs 40k brand new before any benefits or tax credits. It's very good for that price level. Actually luxury cars brand new cost 60k+. If you drive daily Tesla also saves thousands more on gas.
    It's the cheap models for middle class. Looks and has sense of being luxury car but very affordable and cheap in the end. It's a lot like iPhones and macbooks in the early days when iPhone was 300$.

      Majority of wealthy people make good financial decisions which includes not spending money on a flashy car. A Tesla is cheap and has low cost of maintenance. It's the perfect vehicle to accumulate wealth. Idiots are willing to pay the Elon tax to buy a shittier vehicle though.

      Can confirm. Made 220k last year, retiring by the time I'm 50. Model 3 has ridiculously low cost of ownership comparable to a shitbox Mitsubishi Mirage, but top ratings on safety and feels pretty luxury. The cherry on top is that the government sprinkled free tax credits on top. Why the frick wouldn't I get one?
      Making poorgays on DA seethe that they can't afford literally the cheapest car to own is the cherry on top.

Most drs and lawyers have never-ending high school syndrome because they've been in education settings forever (they're also very agreeable because of this).

    i've never seen a rich person driving a Tesla. wagies drive Teslas and they like the full self driving feature to help them cope with their mind numbing commute

    my wife is a doctor and drives a model 3 and has a few coworkers that also have have the same. in my case i bought the 3 for her while she was in med school (which i paid for). she's thought about upgrading to the S to not have the "pleb" car and also have more space, range and comfort, but the car is so similar it's not worth upgrading now.

    she just drives one of my expensive cars if she wants to be in something fancy. it's actually nice having an average car that doesn't stand out as much and you aren't worried about taking out to someplace a more sketch.

    overall she likes it because it of the autopilot / FSD driver assists. the car is really easy to drive, no need to stop at gas stations and electricity at home is cheap. navigation works really well, the screen is easy to see and has good cameras for reverse / blind spot when changing lanes.

    tesla is for people that don't like cars
    they just want an appliance, so an ipad on wheels is the perfect choice.
    if samsung had made a car that works like a fridge they would have bought that.

    the appeal of a tesla is kinda growing on me. I can get in my car and just set a destination and it'll drive me 95% of the way their

    Probably cause its self driving and they can charge it at home. No need to warm it up or drop by petrol stations.

    Tesla owners rarely leave the city or live their life constantly trying to flex like those guys who used to do that awkward smile when they got a grille in their teeth or stick their feet out when they get new Jordans. Its a status symbols for techy poor people like low trim German cars and designer clothes sold in shopping malls.

    It's wealth porn because it is a trash vehicle. Driving a Tesla is like saying, "I have room and money for an extra car." There has to be a real car sitting at home too if they are driving the Tesla. Driving a Tesla to Tahoe would be misery.

    Doctors are more health conscious than most people and are weary of the harmful chemicals found in exhaust.

    >Why do rich people love Teslas
    Rich people can afford multiple cars. A Tesla is an ideal commuter car. They probably have other cars for longer road trips or fun if they're car enthusiasts.
