In case 2020 wasn’t wanky enough, somebody has gone out and created a new dating app, exclusively for Tesla owners. While we know there are a bunch of ultra-specific dating websites, from Sizzl; the app designed for like-minded bacon lovers to Hater; the platform that aims to match people based on their mutual hatred for everyday things, Tesla Dating seems a little contrived. But then again, maybe that’s the point.
Matching with some based purely on their car isn’t a new premise. We regularly see gold digger pranks on YouTube where the guy cruises off in a Lamborghini much to the dismay of onlookers, but Tesla is taking things to new heights. The site appeared a while back and features the genius tagline ‘You can’t spell LOVE without EV’. If you’re thinking that sounds like a joke, you’d be right.
“To be honest the site was put up as a joke,” Tesla Dating founder Ajitpal Grewal told Mashable. But apparently, after seeing how much traction the site was getting, Grewal turned that joke into a reality, with Tesla Dating currently under construction. “It seemed like once they became a customer, that’s all they wanted to talk about. It became a big part of their identity,” Grewal said. “It hit me, these people would be perfect for each other.”
If you jump onto the site now, you can see there is an option to subscribe to receive early access. Apparently, you’ll need to prove Tesla ownership before launch, which seems like a given, but the best part of the new dating app is the example conversations, which house ripper conversation starters like “Your eyes are as blue and beautiful as the deep blue metallic exterior on your model X”. If that doesn’t get your engines racing, nothing will.
