2 / 2

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Many of us take summer roadtrips, but few like this.

Steve Sasman is driving all the lower 48, plus four provinces in Canada in an electric car.

He is making the more than 25,000-mile journey without paying for any gas in his Tesla model S.

When he visits communities, he invites random people into his car to drive around and talk on camera.

From charity organizers to average Joe's, he says meeting others is his favorite part of the trip.

Steve Sasman- Cross-Country Tesla Driver: "And it's just so neat to see the transition and the different types of people and what's going on in all those different communities. To me, that's really fun and interesting."

He expects to complete his journey in three to four months.
