I just drove 3121 miles solo from Mexico to Canada in a Tesla Model S Electric car. No gas. No fuel cost. AMA

I'm Norman Hajjar, Managing Director of PlugInsights, an electric vehicle research firm that is part of Recargo, Inc.

I just drove 3121 miles solo from my home in Thousand Oaks, CA, to Tijuana, Mexico then north to Canada in a Tesla Model S Electric car. Trip took 4+ days (returning to Thousand Oaks). Got back 11/25/13 at 230AM. Spent zero dollars on fuel. 100% electric. Used Tesla's incredible Supercharger network the whole way.

I have a Flickr set with pics of the journey here.

And here's the PlugInsights web site.

UPDATE AT 11PM PST: Been at this for like 6 hours, and need to hit pause. I will look in on the AMA in the morning and catch up if there are more questions then. Thanks for a great back and forth!

Please also note: do NOT attempt this costume if you are planning on going to my friend’s party in San Francisco tonight. Think of how embarrassing it would be if we showed up wearing this same exact thing!! —Walter Green
