The average consumer doesn't know a lot about new cars, let alone electric cars. For the most part, they go into a car purchase blind. They might know what color they want and how many doors they need, but that’s just about it. They spew out a few buzzwords every now and then to seem knowledgeable and unscamable. It doesn’t work.
Not you, you read an EV blog, you know your stuff. You’ve been scouring the web for the best prices out there. You’ve configured your next car online and know exactly what you want, down to the exact options.
You step foot on a lot and are instantly prowled by a scummy salesperson looking for his next mortgage payment. Oddly enough, you know more about your inquired vehicle than he does. Your thoughts go unanswered and misinformation fills the air. You question the responses, his morals, and life as a whole. The salesperson’s just there to make the already dreadful experience that much worse.
You guessed it, the car in your preferred specifications isn’t available. You called prior, you checked the dealerships website, you were assured it would be there, it’s not. But they got you in the door and that’s all that matters to them. Now you can either continue your search elsewhere, settle on another similar vehicle, wait a few days for a dealer trade, or wait months on a custom order. Simply because you despise this process, you want it over with as quickly as possible.
Juggling you around from one employee to another with a smile that says “I hate this process as much as you”, you’re just waiting on the unknown. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, it’s all checked and caught up. What now? Refusing to make any actual human interaction (ew) you watch the scratchy local channel on that sweet 42” screen and grab yourself a free watered down coffee in a shot-glass sized Styrofoam cup.
