EP#27 Steve Distante – Driving Teslas. Living Electric

Steve DIstante is an Entrepreneur and car aficionado from Long Island, New York. He started his first business when he was only 5 years old. He is the CEO of Vanderbilt Securities LLC, member of Long Island Exotics Club and an incoming president of Entrepreneurs Organization(EO)

I was fascinated by his love and enthusiasm for electric vehicles(EV). He owns the model S, P90D with Ludacris mode, The Roadster 2010 and other non-teslas. The first part, We talked about his experience with the cars among other things. One of his car’s number plate is “USA FAN, THE EMPIRE STATE, ZERO EMISSIONS”

This Podcast is relevant on so many levels, its appeals to car geeks, electric car geeks and electric car doubters. I asked Steve the questions that the above groups might ask and his answers are definitely valid because he plays with these toys. It was a fascinating talk really.

I did a part 2 with Steve where we talked about Entrepreneurship, his advice and philosophies are quite unconventional and profound. I recommend that you check it out and subscribe.
