Victoria’s Jim Hindson and his daughter, Laurie, joined thousands of international enthusiasts this week by happily laying down $1,000 each to reserve Tesla’s new Model 3 electric car.
“Because it’s the future,” Hindson said Friday.
Hindson already owns two fully electric cars and the Model 3 is not in production yet. Still, he’s willing to wait to support the electric vehicles and to get a car able to travel longer distances on one charge and offer faster charging.
The Model 3 is expected to be able to cover 346 kilometres per charge.
