The American Automobile Association (AAA) expects 100 million Americans and more than 50 percent of families to pack up the car for a road trip this summer (even more than last year). In Minnesota, the popular trip ‘Up North’ to Lake Superior is the first to go fully electric with the Interstate 35 corridor now boasting enough chargers to power any electric vehicle (EV) from the Twin Cities to Duluth.
Sam Villella is one of those drivers whose family thoroughly enjoys exploring tourist attractions while their car recharges and knowing the trip helps benefit the environment and economy.
