About

My name is Omar and I am an Tesla fan.  Somewhat ironically, Nissan is to thank for this, largely because of this commercial:

While Nissan helped me see the light,  EVs were not workable for me until Tesla announced the Model S with its 265 miles of range. The rest, as they say, is history.

There are a lot of folks that helped me get the most out of my Tesla and this site is my way to give back and help the next generation of EV owners have a great ownership experience.  While the site is focused on Tesla, much of what I cover around charging, trip planning, etc will be useful to any first-time EV owner.

This site has three sections:

  • The Co-Pilot Manual: a resource that is part of an owner mentor program run by the NorCal-Reno Tesla Owners Club for new Model S, Model X and Model 3 owners
  • My musings on all things Tesla and EV
  • My take on some of the negative myths and stereotypes about EVs that seem to magically propagate on the web
