Electric Americas Foundation is filming a documentary as they take on the Pan-American Highway in two Tesla electric vehicles.
Founders of the Electric Americas Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, are driving across the Americas from Alaska to Patagonia using Tesla electric vehicles while also filming a documentary about their drive. The trip is a long one covering 20,000 miles in seven months, ending in December 2022 if all goes according to plan. Since we published an initial article about this road trip, I spoke with Martin Canabal, the founder who had already begun the trip.
The team consists of Martin, his wife and newborn, and Tuti Iraola and Oliver Umpierre. As they travel through 12 countries, they will work with local governments, organizations, and schools to raise awareness about climate change while promoting sustainability initiatives, all while proving that it’s possible today to travel without using fossil fuels.
