Other than animals, just like most big boys, I love cars.
Almost every expedition I went on I needed 4×4 vehicles, from Jeep Wrangler to Land Rover to G-Wagon. Back in town, having a G63 as daily driver and a Lambo for track days is just adrenaline pumping dream.
However, all of the mentioned vehincles have that one thing in common I had to forget about. No, not the price tag. It’s fuel consumption.
No matter how much fun these rides are, I decided not to use them any more, at least not as daily drivers.
So one year ago I bought a Tesla for daily driver to replace my Land Rover. Since then, my motorhead friends never texted me. Despite the fact that Tesla is even quicker than most of the latest Ferrari models, gas car owners tend to disagree. But this is what’s unique about Tesla. If you don’t own a Tesla, you are most likely a hater.
Even my PR crew suggested that I should avoid mentioning my car as it’s a luxury item which would be in conflict with my conservation work. I disagree. To me, Tesla is never anything luxurious but a transport option which is noiseless and zero-emission people use to help reduce pollution. Not to mention safe and fast.
Anyways, what I have achieved matters more than empty words – I helped save the environment by not burning 2,500 liters of fuel in a year.
My Tesla turned 1 year old. I hadn’t visited a gas station for 1 year. 20,000 km of pure electric mileage was done. That would have burnt approximately 2,500 liters on my previous daily driver, a Land Rover, which had a fuel consumption of 8 km/l.
