Another batch of Canadians is planning to drive from the west coast to the east coast in roughly three days.
This time around, it’s a team of two people. The pair is hoping to be able to drive constantly to make the trip as fast as possible. The drivers are Ian Pavelko from Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec and Trevor Page of Aurora, Ontario.
They’re driving a performance Tesla Model 3 and are banking on Tesla’s new V3 Superchargers that can refill 50 percent of a Model 3’s battery in roughly 15 minutes.
The route will take them from the Tsawwassen reserve area in Delta, British Columbia all the way to Point Pleasant Park in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
This is the second time that two Canadians have attempted this feat. The first trial took place in late December but didn’t get completed due to bad weather conditions.
This time around the new team is more hopeful that they can show Canadians that battery range anxiety isn’t as bad as most people think.

Update: According to Twitter, the trip has been delayed until next week.
PSA: Just a reminder that @IanPavelko and I are waiting until next week to begin our trip, not today as originally planned.
Ian is resting in Calgary to quell his flu bug and I've decided to stay in Vancouver for the duration instead of flying home and back again. https://t.co/BnpsCEeC5J
