Touring Route 97 as a road trip now has another option for travel. Power Trips, a Vernon-based electric, luxury vehicle rental company is now renting TESLA electric cars and currently offers the model S P85 sedan all wheel drive vehicle. In the near future, Power Trips will add the brand new X model SUV. Packages, Tours, hourly, daily and weekly rates are available for touring and with the significant number of destination charging stations along Route 97, travel will be relaxing and affordable. The cars will be supplied with adapters that allow for any electric charger to be used, not just the TESLA units. The TESLA S sedan is rated at 426 kms per full charge but that does vary based on driving routes and individual driver characteristics.
