About David Havasi

David was born and raised in Michigan, the youngest son of a "Big Three" auto executive and a teacher, his childhood was immersed in Detroit's rich auto culture. Being both a performance car enthusiast and environmentalist, he had long felt the need to reconcile his love for cars with their negative affect on the environment. Before Tesla came along, there was a direct correlation between how fun a car was to drive and how bad it was for the environment. David was a member of the Tesla team for almost seven years and served in a number of roles while helping develop Tesla's sales/delivery presence in the Northeast and Florida.

David lives in Sarasota with his wife and daughter.
