Anne O’Leary, Vodafone ceo, is really ‘charged up’ about her Tesla and doing her bit for the planet
What was your first car?
My first car was a red, little Ford Fiesta. I think it was about 10 years old and I got a loan from the bank and paid it off every month, and I was delighted with it.
What do you drive now?
I’m now driving the Tesla 3, or the ‘baby Tesla’ as I like to call it. I got it about a year-and-a-half ago, and I really love it. It was time for me to change and upgrade my car.
Why did you go electric and how has it been?
I was thinking about sustainability and the planet, and my responsibility as a leader. I’m lucky because there’s a charger in work, I can charge at home, and I often would overnight. Driving from Dublin to Cork has been nice. You would get there on a full charge, but I like to take a break for 20 minutes along the way to charge and have a cup of tea.
