Whether they’re sporty, creative, techie or into something entirely different – all Dad’s are unique. In this list, we explore various types of Dads, and the electric vehicles that suit their personalities best if they were to rent or buy an EV!

The Techie Dad – Tesla Model Y

Always ahead of the game, the Techie Dad is smart, sophisticated and not afraid to go out of his comfort zone. He keeps up to date with the latest tech for all things – especially cars.

Tesla’s latest model the Tesla Model Y is the perfect EV for him – a midsized SUV, with all the cool Tesla technology including Autopilot, Sentry mode, App control, wireless chargers, flat folding seats and an impressive tinted glass roof.

The Outdoorsy Dad – Polestar 2

Whether he’s into hiking, swimming, gardening or other outdoor activity, the Outdoorsy Dad is sure to fall in love with the Polestar 2.

A slick and futuristic looking SUV, the Polestar 2 combines practicality with performance. With the ability to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in under 5 seconds whilst also providing intuitive technology and a comfortable interior – it’s a great all rounder.

The Creative Dad – Lightyear 1

He’s hip, he’s cool and he thinks outside the box. The Creative Dad would definitely drive a Lightyear 0, the world’s first solar electric vehicle.

The Lightyear 0 charges itself whenever the roof absorbs sunlight (even whilst driving) – allowing owners to drive the car for months without charging externally! With an impressive battery range of 625 km, creatives are sure to go mad for this futuristic EV.

The Sports Dad – Tesla Model S

The Sports Dad loves performance, precision and high-speed, so he’ll love the Tesla Model S! Reaching 0-100km in a mere 2.1 seconds, the acceleration of this vehicle is simply breathtaking.

Built for endurance and range, the S is the classiest of the Tesla family, and boasts a top speed of 322km/h and an estimated range of 637km – now that’s something to write home about.

The Handyman Dad – Hyundai Ioniq 5

We all know that Mr Fix-it type Dad, who just seems to know everything about anything. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 can relate to that sentiment – as it seems to cover all bases of what an EV needs.

With quick charging (10% – 80% in 18 minutes), an affordable price point, a spacious interior and even a  ‘relaxation mode’, the Hyundai Ioniq 5 has all a Handyman Dad needs for a comfortable and exhilarating driving experience.

The Joker Dad – Tesla Model 3

The Joker Dad is categorised as someone who; tells Dad jokes left right and centre, never ceases to embarrass his kids and doesn’t seem to have a filter. It is for these reasons that the Joker Dad and the Tesla Model 3 go hand-in-hand.

The Tesla Model 3 sedan (and other Tesla models) includes an ‘emissions mode’ – which allows users to change the indicator sound to fart noises, a car-a-oke feature which enables singalongs in the car as well as a light show which is loud, and quite embarrassing if done in public. The Joker Dad would love and utilise all these features, there’s just no doubt about it.

The Show Off Dad – Tesla Model X

Not afraid to brag about his new toy, his new clothes or his kids achievements for that matter, the Show Off Dad is unashamedly loud and proud about the people and things he loves.

The Tesla Model X is the ultimate show-off vehicle, with Falcon winged doors, auto summon capability, a panoramic windshield as well as seating for up to seven people – all in all it’s a car that’s sure to turn heads!

The Adventurous Dad – Rivian R1S

Always up for a challenge or a new experience, the Adventurous Dad would drool over Rivian’s flagship R1S EV.

With off road capability, a high towing capacity, ample storage and a large battery pack,  this SUV is perfect for long roadtrips and family car rides for the adventurous kind.
