Meet our Members
Our members are the heartbeat of the Motor community. We’re excited to share some of our favorite stories.
We’re lucky. In a world where in-person interactions have become more limited, we still have an opportunity to meet our members safely and responsibly. Every member receives a full introduction to their new car provided by our Delivery Agents during their delivery. This interaction allows us to meet Motor Members and learn how they came to join the Motor community.
We’ve compiled some of our favorite stories below.
The Electric Curious
Jenn and her husband were two of our first members. During our initial launch, we were fortunate enough to pick up some great local coverage on Motor and our mission through IBJ, Indianapolis Monthly, Inside Indiana Business, and more – but it was our coverage in the Indy Star that caught their attention.
Their son was graduating college soon and needed a car while he finished his degree. Electric cars have been intriguing to them for a while. They decided to give their son one of their old cars and replace it with an EV for themselves. After catching their attention in the Indy Star article, Motor became the leading choice. The flexibility of a monthly subscription, savings compared to traditional leases through an all-in-one package, and our concierge assistance made Motor the obvious choice for them. They have since made further commitments to the electric lifestyle, taking advantage of our free faster charger installation we offer any member who signs up for a minimum 4-month commitment.
After some time away from the Hoosier state, Peter recently moved back to Indiana joining a local real estate agency. He lives in Bloomington and commutes to Indy 2 – 3 times a week, making his commute on those days 100+ miles. Peter previously owned a Tesla Model 3 and fell in love with the drive. Upon returning to Indy, he knew he wanted to get another one, but had some concerns over range due to his commute.
Peter reached out inquiring about our vehicles, wondering if there was an electric car that could meet his long-range needs. We were able to put Peter’s mind at ease with the Tesla Model Y and its 326 miles of range. As Peter quickly found out – whether you are looking for range, the latest tech, or car size, Motor has vehicles that can fit anyone’s needs.
After years of moving around while in the military, Damon made his way to Indy through career opportunities. He doesn’t have any family here; work is the only thing that brought Damon to the Circle City. Damon had never driven an EV before joining Motor, but it was the freedom and flexibility in a monthly subscription that he fell in love with.
Realizing that he is unsure how long he’ll remain in Indy – we hope forever! – Damon didn’t want to commit to the long-term payments of buying or leasing a car. Motor’s commitment-friendly subscription is helping Damon as he still figures out where he will be putting down roots.
Amanda has been with Motor since before our public app (iOS/Android) existed. She and her family decided that they wanted to go electric, but weren’t sure which car was right for them. Amanda has been exploring our different tiers to see which one is just right, spending multiple months with each vehicle before moving on to the next. After starting with the comfortable Nissan Leaf and moving up to the Tesla Model 3, she concluded that she loved the unique aspects of every Motor car she’s tried – realizing the Tesla Model 3 has similar ample storage as the Nissan Leaf with more performance in her drive. Still undecided about such a hard choice – Amanda has fallen in love with the freedom and flexibility in a Motor Drive subscription.
The smooth handling, substantial passenger and storage space, and ease of charging are making the choice challenging. We are here for her as she works through the decision – giving expert advice and honest opinions to find the EV that’s just right.
Patricia loves getting into new cars. A long-time lessee, she enjoys being able to get a new car every two years. With Motor’s all-in-one pricing, she ran the numbers and calculated that her family could save up to 25% compared to traditional leases through Motor. With the added benefits of a 24/7 concierge and saying goodbye to the hassles of traditional car ownership, Motor was a clear choice.
Each of our members has their own unique story about why they joined Motor. Electric cars are starting to pop up everywhere in our daily lives – on the road, in our Super Bowl commercials, and through some very newsworthy announcements from GM, Ford, and the entire U.S. government fleet going electric.
Today’s electric cars have the range, size, and technology to fit every one of your vehicle needs. As more people start their electric journey, Motor will be there to help guide you. Whether you are interested in the comfort of a Nissan Leaf or Chevy Bolt, or the performance of a Ford Mustang Mach-E – you can check them all out on our Motor Drive page.
