Also included are charge cards for both charging networks (Blink and Chargepoint) Charging is included in the rental of the car however any charges due to leaving the car plugged in after it is charged, will be billed at the end of the rental.

This vehicle had been configured to allow supercharging with the ChaDEMO chargers. Unlike the Tesla supercharging network these superchargers are found in more populated areas and in cities.

There a learning curve to an electric car but it was awesome! No range anxiety. And it's a really cool car!
Car is awesome; Kevin's awesome. We had a fantastic time. Will definitely rent this car again when I'm in LA next time. If you're running around town or not driving too far, this is PERFECT!!
My only warning for future renters is related to RANGE. This car has a limited range, because it's a 40, not a 65. Kevin made this clear so I knew exactly what I was renting. For my use, which included freeways and traffic running A/C all the while, the charging limit was about 130 miles of range. In practice, I could drive about 110 miles between charges, as I didn't want to go much below 20 miles remaining before charging up. YMMV, of course.
ONE MORE THING. When using ChaDemo's network with the PlugShare app, CHOOSE LEVEL 3 CHARGERS. You can find out whether a ChaDemo station has Level 3 chargers by tapping "Station Details." We found out that Level 2 needed 75 minutes or so and anything below that needed between 2.5 and 5 hours. Level 3 charged the car in about 40 minutes. Cool.
Kevin's a great communicator and super generous. I HIGHLY recommend this car — just as long as you keep your expectations within range.... :-)
Had a great time exploring 'life with a Tesla' via Kevin's Model S. The car was very nice - quiet, powerful, smooth ride, very nice sound system. Intuitive and well designed user interface. Kevin was very responsive during my initial confusion re: charging options stemming from delay in my receipt of his detailed email of directions. Otherwise all went smoothly. In general, it was a good trial of the shift in behaviors required by an all electric vehicle.
It was nightmare for me and my family - driving that Tesla car!
1. No 150 ml. You will only have 130 ml. maximum in case you will not use A/C, Brake and Accelerator! 😃 But you have to be sure you always have the opportunity to charge the car. In real life - not more, than 100 ml. from full charge.
2. No SuperCharger!!! I tried to find the proper charger at list 40 min. till 14 hours for full charge! Then you can drive for just 2 hours. 😃
3. Horrible milage limit: 150 for one day, but 1500 for one month!
4. No AutoPilot!
This car is good to drive in LA for couple of days in order to get the idea of Tesla. But no AutoPilot there!
1. No real information about car.
2. No real help in any emergency situation.
3. He gave me the instruction to go to one charger, but it doesn’t work with Tesla! I spend at list 700$ for tow my car away 3 times per one day! And no compensation from the owner!
I`ve spent twice as much money for this car for towing and for extra millage! For that price I could rent Tesla X P100D!
I spent three days driving an amazing car! A great experience driving the Tesla S. Very different from my Dodge Challenger :) I would absolutely rent it again. Kevin was very responsive to any questions. What's more fun then driving through the LBC in a beautiful white Tesla S with the sunroof open?!
