Thanks for joining us. Over the next couple months, we aim to populate this blog with our experiences about driving across the USA, in a 100% electric car. While we know this has been done before, we’re pretty sure that no one has had the opportunity to do it in a Tesla Model S, and that other well documented trips have had a significant support crew. We will have none. Among other things, with this journey we aim to:
- Thoroughly ring out Tesla’s Model S. What kind of car is it? Is it as good as the automotive press says it is? Is it a viable alternative for someone in the market for a mid-sized luxury sedan?
- Examine the existing infrastructure, especially away from the coasts, for electric car charging that exists today. Not tomorrow, not in a year’s time, but today. Where is charging available? What sacrifices, if any, does one need to make to go on a long road trip via electric car?
- Spread the word about EVs, generating publicity and awareness along the way.
- See the US via car (never done that before).
Stay tuned as we gear up for the trip. We’ll keep you posted!
