My EV Story: Lucas' Tesla Model 3

February 07, 2020

Blue Tesla Model 3 parked in garage with snow on the hood

I have been wanting an electric vehicle ever since I saw the first Nissan LEAF. 

At the time, I never had the need to switch. But when I started to drive full time for UBER, my old Hyundai Elantra was not cutting it when it came to cost or maintaining the car. I drive 60k miles a year and all city miles.

I thought to buy a LEAF but saw a Tesla Model 3 was only $3,000 more, so I bought the Tesla.

It has been problem-free and costs me only $4 a day to operate and charge under EWEB power at home.

I love my EV. It helps keep costs down and drops my reliance on fossil fuels. I will never switch back to a combustion vehicle.
