I worked at a Toyota Dealership in the early 2000's when the Prius was first introduced...actually I worked at Hollywood Toyota as their Fleet Manager and I sold MANY new Prius's to many celebrities! I still have the drivers license (copies) to Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Larry David and Cameron Diaz just to name a few. I am SURE that some "A" list celebrities are now driving Teslas but I have not heard of any?! Does anyone here know if any "A" list celebrities that own and drive a new model S ?

Just curious....

Lot's of them will get a Tesla. A celeb friend of mine ordered his simply because he doesn't want to stop for gas due to autograph / photograph requests...

haha

"because he doesn't want to stop for gas due to autograph / photograph requests..."

this makes no sense, he will be stopping more to charge up on trips...

and for longer too ;)

@kilimats, I have been driving my Model S since November and for the most part have entered my Model S in my garage with a full charge, drove it to my destination and around town then back into my garage and haven't had to stop to plug it in anywhere. Makes complete sense to me, if I also was an A list celebrity but I'm barely a B lister... ;)

"I still have the drivers license (copies) to Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Larry David and Cameron Diaz just to name a few."

I am sure Toyota and its customer's appreciate employee's retaining copies of customer personal information.

"on trips" -- which is a small percentage of driving outings and time.

Yes because I want to drive what the pop and movie stars are driving!!!

Yeah Bieber getting the Fisker was the only reason I wanted a cool looking EV - but then I wanted a car that actually drives so got interested in Tesla, hehe

Jay Leno drives a Volt to work and has reviewed Model S on Leno's Garage and gave it a thumbs up. That is one of the few celebrities I would pay any attention to, because he actually loves cars...

Some A-lister trying to make a statement by buying a Prius does not mean anything, doubt they would actually drive the thing... Maybe they bought it for the nanny...

Will.I.Am from Blaack Eyed Peas talking about his Roadster with Elon:

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. Blue P85. Although I don't know if its hers or his....but SHE was driving. :-)

I won't say who, however, one of the MOST powerful movie executives, and one of the most successful directors ON EARTH are both driving MS's.

Every Model S owner is a celebrity!

I am not a celebrity, but my car is.

Klimats,

Are u an owner? Ive had my60kwh for a while now. I drive a crazy amount around the DMV and just charge at night. BTW Celebrites dont use superchargers..they have something called private jets.

I can imagine how painful it would be to be a celebrity and have people taking pics all the time. I'm already tired of people taking pics and video of my car while my wife and son are inside. Also make me nervous to have people leaning over peaking through windows when parked. It's gonna scratch!!! Haha

Tom Leykis, the radio celebrity has one and raves about it on his show, says an acquaintance of mine.

Also, Leonardo got a Fisker when they first came out. That is sad.

I wonder how much used Karmas go for now.

Ashton used to sport his Karma on Two and a Half Men. I doubt we'll be seeing it again.
Actually, I just thought of a new episode. The garage burns down and...

Tweet or Facebook comments to any named celebrity here to get them to help promote Tesla.

I won't name, names... however, I work in the entertainment industry and lets put it this way, some of the BIGGEST directors and producers of TOP Oscar winning films are driving MS's.

I was going to a meeting on a studio lot, at a production company of a director who's always got some crazy fancy sports car parked out front. My partners and I were discussing what it'd be this time... And sure enough, a Model S.

Tiki, stimey;
Do you suppose they will swear of ICEs like non-celebs, or will the urge to get the latest glitziest overcome them? And will they regret it if it does?

typo: swear off ICEs ...

All posters who know 'celebs' please get them behind the petition.
Thanks

Brian,

-Rockstars... maybe.
-Fashion Models... doubtful.
-Movie / TV stars... for sure!
-Movie / TV professionals... for sure!
-Reality Stars... likely don't even know how to spell Tesla, much less know what an EV is.

Some of the MOST green-minded people I have ever met in my life are TV / Film stars, directors, producers, professionals. I guess because they are far more educated on global issues and technology, and tend to be far more pro-envroment, and anti-pollution. Thus the reason why Elon hangs with so many A-list'ers! :-)

Let's get George Takei on this!

Should have gone private thread with this one.
