2017 Tesla Model S 75kwh with latest-gen autopilot and FREE unlimited charging at any Supercharger location!
This is a truly amazing, 100% electric car. Three things make this Tesla quite different from others listed for rent on Turo:
- Glass roof that spans the entire top of the car, with no bar in the middle (Tesla only started shipping these in December 2016)
- Latest generation "HW2" autopilot (Tesla only started shipping this hardware in December 2016)
- Premium sound system with subwoofer
- 100% free Supercharger access
- Updated exterior look (mid-2016 design refresh)
Driving this car is an amazing experience - if you're reading this and debating between spending a bit more to rent this car, I hear you - I'm generally price sensitive, but there's a night/day difference between driving this versus even the nicest gasoline burning car:
- It's dead silent inside. Without a combustion engine, there's barely any road noise. Conversations, music, podcasts all sound much better.
- Regenerative braking, so you rarely need to hit the brakes. When you take your foot off the accelerator, the car regains energy and slows down, without you having to hit the brakes. Once you get the hang of this, the drive becomes effortlessly smooth.

Where can I charge your car?
You can charge at literally any charging station - there are adapters and a charging cable in the trunk of the car to support whatever you need.
Tesla Supercharger Network:
- 100% free, extremely fast (about an hour), locations across California. View a map here:
Public Charging Station
- There are hundreds throughout the Bay Area and thousands throughout California. Some are faster than others, a full charge can take between 3 and 6 hours. See a map here:
Any electrical outlet
- The slowest option, but literally anywhere that you can plug into a normal 3-prong outlet, you can charge this car. It'll take quite awhile to charge, but means you can't ever truly get stuck.
This car can really drive itself? That sounds cray.
Yep, it really can. You'll still need to keep your hands on the wheel, and be prepared to take control, but autopilot can be quite helpful. I'm happy to show you in person if you'd like - there are also a number of helpful YouTube videos online that will give you a sense of what Autopilot can and cannot do. It's a pretty amazing experience.
How much does charging cost?
Charging is 100% free at any Tesla Supercharger location:
Public charging stations vary in cost, but generally at $0.50/kwh, it's equivalent to the cost of filling up a gas tank on an equivalent vehicle.
Do I have to return the car charged?
Nope! It'd be nice, but not required if you don't have time.
2017 Tesla Model SBrendan and Brittany's Tesla15521
If you are curious about electric cars or are a fan of Tesla like I am, I highly recommend renting this car. Brendan takes really good care of it and he made the renting process very simple. I will definitely be renting this car again.
I used Brendan's Model S for a drive up to Ukiah (Mendocino County). It was a pleasure to ride this intergalactic spaceboat of light & wonder! Loved the glass roof and the fast Supercharging along the road. Brendan made it very easy to pickup the car from the Turo lot off SFO. I would rent this again in a heartbeat!
Great car: Glimpse of the future! Wish I could afford one. Brendan immediately responded to all enquiries: on one occasion I even locked myself out of the car and he remotely unlocked it within minutes of being contacted! Saved me a big hassle! Thanks! Bruce
