It is a Tesla underneath!

If you've been watching YouTube for many years then you will likely know who this man is, however if you've been out of the loop then it's possible you won't. This is Louis Cole, but most people know him as FunForLouis.

He set up his YouTube channel 10 years ago and has been travelling the world and documenting his life in this style of vlogs for a decade. His latest venture has been converting a 70s VW campervan into a fully-electric vehicle as a way to reduce his carbon footprint while he lives in Los Angeles.

There is a whole serious of build videos on his YouTube channel, and he has just posted a 1,000 mile update video which covers what it's like to live with and its running costs. It's been a great journey to follow, and I am interested to see what he does with it next.

  • Why isn’t it called an “Ampavan”, surely a missed opportunity?!

  • Tesla’s are crap. The whole concept of electric cars are short term. They are not environmentally good.
