In the first chapter of our new blog series “Charged-Up About EVs”, Randy explains what it’s like to drive the Tesla Model S for the first time after being in the automotive industry for over 33 years.

Meet Randy McMahon, the Prairies Region Remarketing Manager for Jim Pattison Lease.


“Having been in the car business for over the last three decades and having sold just about every type of vehicle under the sun, the one type of vehicle that has always intrigued me is the electric vehicle or EV. Over the last ten years or so I have been watching the EV technology in the automotive industry grow and evolve into what it is today- it is not a fad, it is something that cannot be overlooked. The demand for EVs is now global. As consumer interest and confidence grows in the segment, sales increase and we are now seeing almost every manufacturer coming out with an EV offering.

To best familiarize myself and inform our company about the technology and to find out what struggles (if any) face an EV owner, I decided, why not drive one for a while? So that’s what I am doing. Over the next several months or more, I will be posting and talking about the challenges and benefits EV owners face. I do a lot of reading about the technology and would like to be able to share it with everyone.”

Stay tuned as we follow Randy on his personal experience with EV’s.
