…but we do know Franz, Elon, or Maye would all look cool in a pair. As would you!
The curvature of the eyewear mimics the shape of Tesla vehicles. The repeaters (side front cameras) are accentuated on either side of the arms symbolizing the wide range of vision. The nose bridge highlights the grill of a Model S and X.
Patrick Ho, Founder
Patrick’s drive (ironically) is to lead not by sight but by his unwavering faith in the greater good.
After graduating college in Canada, Patrick began working in the eyewear industry in the United States. In 1990, he acquired Rochester Optical Manufacturing Company in Rochester, NY, and quickly grew the business to a diversified global powerhouse. As a Tesla Model S P100D (with Ludicrous) owner, Patrick has been a long-time Tesla aficionado. He first-handily experienced the revolution of electric vehicles (EV’s) in 2014 when he test drove the original Model S and was blown away by the high (and clean) performance.
Since then, his passion for green energy and reducing his carbon footprint led him to co-found Tesla Owners Club New York State (TOCNYS) in 2018, which is now a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As president, Patrick leads the club’s mission of accelerating New York’s transition to sustainable energy and the adoption of EV’s statewide.
As his adoration for the eco-friendly lifestyle and brand values grew, Patrick wanted to connect even further. Knowing Tesla continues to be at the forefront of innovation, Patrick saw the opportunity to merge the elegance of the vehicle design into an international eyewear brand.
Thus, DRIVE was born – the world’s first eyewear inspired by both Tesla’s aesthetics and Tesla’s core function of providing a better vision for drivers.
