Tesla Demonstration Drive – The Model 3 and Model Y

For a number of years I’ve been trying to get a Tesla for a test drive, but their media people have been AWOL – even when I had their actual email address, I was ignored. So how did we get this test drive? Patience really. I signed up on their website for a Tesla Test Drive Event – where they actually come to you – or close to you, and let you get behind the wheel of the vehicle of your choice for 30 minutes or so. Since I’m an Auto Journalist, I took the opportunity and asked to drive both the 3 and the Y so I could write an article, and they were happy to oblige!

Media Day At The 2019 Canadian International AutoShow #CIAS2019

The great thing about attending the AutoShow during the Press/Media Day is the lack of people, and the ability to get some good shots of vehicles without a million people getting into the shot and ruining it. The show runs from Feb. 15-24, 2019 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North and South Buildings. You can purchase tickets online at www.autoshow.ca/tickets  Note: Tuesday, Feb. 19th is Super Tuesday and tickets are only $14 Here’s a collection of my pictures from the show…

This time we’re focusing on the future of the automobile and transportation as we’ll come to know it. Like it or not – EV’s are going to dominate all modes of transport in our future and that’s for the better. Already China has cities that have ditched the diesel and run exclusively on electric buses… bye bye diesel fumes. In the U.K. they are pressing forward with electric commuter trains and the infamous black cabs (taxis) are being muscled aside with the new EV variant. Time to check out this years’ EV future and present vehicles.
