Ian Pavelko and Trevor Page from Tesla Owners Online have finally been able to complete this epic coast-to-coast nonstop road trip across Canada. It took them 73 hours… who said EVs can’t be used in cold weather? Or bad for road trips? This is amazing and will for sure help a lot of people realize EVs are a solid choice and are here to stay. Check out their video sharing the good and the bad of this adventure.
