Tesla Model S
Why Tesla Cars Are a Good Choice for Seniors
The latest Tesla vehicles include some of the most innovative and modern automobile concepts ever designed, and because of that fact some may think that the vehicle is targeted for more of a younger buyer. However, that couldn’t be any further from the truth, as many Tesla vehicle owners are seniors who are looking for energy efficient new methods of transportation and who have the money to spend on Tesla’s pricey automobiles.
The Tesla Model S in particular has been an attractive option for seniors who want comfort, energy efficiency, safety, and who want to be on the cutting edge of vehicle technology and development. It offers a unique combination of features that cannot be found in other vehicle models.
The Tesla Model S is one of the safest cars ever
Safety features are important for senior drivers who often bring their families with them on trips, and the Tesla Model S tops the charts when it comes to being one of the safest vehicles ever made. The vehicle made news when it passed safety tests with flying colors and was rated as one of the safest vehicles ever made by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The vehicle received an average of 5.4 stars in safety which made it the safest vehicle ever tested. As a result of its industry leading safety, it is an excellent option for seniors who travel with their families often or who just want a modern vehicle with the best safety features available.
Tesla cars have minimal maintenance
Compared to gasoline vehicles, Tesla cars have minimal maintenance and as a result they last much longer than traditional cars, which is another good reason why they are well suited for senior drivers. The Tesla warranty is one of the best in the industry, including the Infinite Mile warranty on both the drive unit and the battery pack for the car. The warranty is also for 8 years which is one of the longest in the industry.
The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk mentioned that his vehicles are more reliable than gasoline powered cars because of the lower amount of moving parts and they don’t build up oil residues that can cause parts to break down more quickly. There is also the option of paying more money to upgrade the length of the warranty. The convenience of the warranty and the lack of maintenance requirements makes the Model S a good option for seniors with limited time to spend on car repairs and maintenance.
The Model S is roomy
Although it is a 100% electric car, the Model S is much roomier than its counterparts and is a great option for seniors who may have mobility issues and other physical limitations. The legroom space in the driver’s seats as well as passenger seats is very generous, and most drivers report that it is very comfortable to drive in. The vehicle’s features are also intuitive and easy to use.
With unparalleled energy efficiency, the latest safety features and excellent safety ratings, and plenty of space, the Model S is a great option for senior drivers and future vehicles from Tesla will likely continue in this trend.
