Like many married couples, my wife and I have differences that complement each other. She is passionate about the environment and protecting our planet. As a Patent Attorney, I love a technological solution to address man-made problems. As many of you can guess, Tesla provided an ideal solution that marries both of our passions.
While relaxing one evening several years ago, my wife expressed her long-held desire to move away from her efficient, but gasoline dependent car to an electric vehicle. While I support my wife’s environmentalism, I expressed a lack of enthusiasm at what the automakers had offered in the way of electric vehicles. In my mind, they did not compare to other luxury, gas-powered cars. Rather than end our conversation there, I decided to start doing some research on a car I had recently read about, Tesla Model S, which was then only in prototypes. And there we were, less than 10 minutes after my wife started the conversation, I sat there holding up a webpage showing Model S and simply said, “if I get an electric car, it will be this!” My wife replied, “Let’s get it!”
