“Two Tesla Enthusiasts, one wild idea…”

That’s how I started our ‘About us‘ post. Now, if some of you thought that driving from Victoria BC to Ft. Lauderdale FL and back (round trip about 9,000 mi/ 14,000+ km) In.An.Electric.Car! was ‘wild’, or that crossing Canada in a Tesla Model X is ‘wild’ you ain’t seen nothing yet 😉. On May 1, we’ll announce what I would really call a ‘wild idea’!

Stay tuned…

General Motors fighting Tesla

Leilani Münter’s article on what’s going on between GM and Tesla in Indiana and other US states, speaking from my heart:

So much more relaxing…Well, not this time… 😉

In winter, the weather is always on the front of your mind. With an electric car, certain weather conditions can have a big effect on your range. However, there can also be weather that makes the trip outright dangerous or impossible. Continue reading

‘Twas the night before Christmas…

’Twas the night before Christmas and all through Victoria, not an engine was stirring… – At least that was true for the convoy of six Electric Vehicles from our Victoria EV Club (VEVC) that participated in Saturday’s Santa Light Parade.


In its 34th year, the light parade was bigger and more exciting than ever. With over 80 entries, it can now claim to be the biggest light parade in Canada, even leaving Vancouver and Toronto in its wake. An estimated 40,000 spectators cheered along Government Street despite the cold. It was viewed by thousands more in the comfort of their homes – all the way to the Northwest Territories, we know that for sure!
