Robert Cole got his first EV, a Tesla Model 3, in 2019 after researching and
weighing options for a couple of years. Due to COVID and selling the other
family car due to non-use, Robert now is EV-only and loving it. In his free
time, Robert enjoys traveling and camping, which has been easy to do in the
Tesla with the amount of storage he can make use of. He joined KEVA and local
Tesla groups and increased his involvement in the EV community shortly after
that, and has been working with the local community to increase adoption of
EV’s in urban areas as a Downtown resident and stakeholder.
I need to take a picture of me with the car, though. Just have pictures of the
car and others with it right now.

What a team effort yesterday was!! Thanks to all the KEVA members who helped
make it a success, and especially to Markus Iturriaga and Jerry Kring who
brought (respectively) a Kia Niro and Mach-E!!

like Pierce Brosnan from “Tomorrow Never Dies” driving my Tesla around with
