Meet the behind GoElectric
Jim Steil has always been an outside-the-box thinker with entrepreneurial tendencies. Concrete proof of this came at the young age of 15 when he opened a neighbourhood bicycle repair shop. His fascination with science and mechanics led him on a 10-year world tour teaching High School Physics and Chemistry. Storytelling was his tool of choice, therefore his students learned through hands on experience, not by cracking textbooks.
It was a natural progression for him to become interested in electric vehicles; like him, they are unique, purpose built, and full of surprises when the hood gets popped. He was so enamored with their particular blend of science and functionality that he was compelled to start a project to convert his classic Volvo into an Electric Vehicle. This enthusiasm soon mixed with his entrepreneurial spirit and he co-founded GoElectric with David Lloyd. Together they are working to share the joy of Electric Vehicle ownership with people just like you.
To learn more about Jim, please connect with him on LinkedIn.
David Lloyd is a certified tinkerer whose interest in electromechanics was fueled early on when he received his first Meccano engineering and robotics building set. As he grew he became interested in speed and was soon building electric go-karts for his kids to race around the neighbourhood. He passed down his love of speed and building machines to his 3 children, all of which went on to obtain Engineering Degrees from the UofA.
David received his Electrical Engineering Degree from the University of Waterloo and spent 3 decades as a Control Systems Specialist. After retiring from Spartan Controls he co-founded GoElectric with Jim Steil with the goal of spreading awareness of the positive environmental and economical impacts that electric vehicles have.
