Leilani is a former race car driver, an environmental activist and she’s a Tesla Model S and 3 owner who charges her cars with the solar panels on her home. She’s been named the #1 eco-athlete in the world by Discovery’s Planet Green, one of the top ten female race car drivers in the world by Sports Illustrated and was given the Genius Award by ELLE Magazine. She’s an advocate for renewable energy, electric cars, veganism and animal rights. Leilani worked with the Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS) on a documentary called Racing Extinction where she drives a very special Tesla Model S. The film is very powerful and brings to light animal extinction in a way that’s very relatable to all of us. At the Summit, Leilani was part of a Tesla Community Panel alongside Bonnie Norman and Ryan McCaffrey. She was also the keynote speaker on the last day and spoke to the clubs about wildlife preservation, and what our responsibilities are going forward. #StartWith1Thing. She was also kind enough to make some time during the event to sit down with me and answer a few questions about her Tesla and her work as an activist. I’ve been following Leilani for some time and idolize her in many ways. Spending time with her in LA was a personal highlight.
