This is a 85KWh performance edition car, with Pearl White paint, Panoramic Glass Sun roof, Black performance interior, 17" touch screen, Leather seats, Tech Package, GPS and Ultra High Fidelity sound. It's a real pleasure to drive. Note: This car does not have autopilot features.

You can charge the car for free at Tesla superchargers. In the trunk, you will find cables and adapters, that can be used to connect to different charging systems. Details here: https://www.teslamotors.com/models-charging.

Useful tips to prevent range anxiety (that worked for me)
1. Always assume that the last 50 miles of charge is not there. If the remaining charge shows 200 miles, you should plan on getting to a charger in 150 miles. The displayed range is under ideal conditions - 55 mph on a freeway, at warm temperatures.
2. Take every opportunity to charge at a supercharger. Even if you have 150 miles left when you are near a supercharger, please go ahead and plug it in for a few minutes. It might save anxious moments later.
3. Use waiting times to charge. If waiting near SFO Airport, instead of the cell phone parking lot, plug in at the San Mateo supercharger. On long trips, take breaks at superchargers.
4. Never cut it close. If the car runs out of charge, it will have to be towed on a flat bed truck.
5. If no supercharger, where possible, it is preferable to use 220V electrical sockets. These have the NEMA 14-50 or J1772 connectors. They typically charge at 20-25 miles an hour. The 110V chargers will give you just 5 miles an hour.
6. You can use the GPS in the car to find chargers. On a PC or phone, you can use this link: https://www.tesla.com/findus
Videos, providing information about the operation, of a Tesla Model S
Car was great. Chris explained how everything worked. Fastrak already in car no extra charge. Phone charger provided, even bottles of water for us to drink. Excellent experience all around. Rent this car you great fun great price. Thanks again.
We were happy to rent this Tesla! The communication was easy and smooth. The owner was flexible with time and place to pick up and return the car. It was always easy to reach him via phone.
The car itself was in a very good condition.
This Tesla is awesome, insanely fast, so much fun on the Pacific Highway and great savings for no gas needed, because most electric chargers are free.
The only drawback - need to plan ahead all the charges, otherwise could get stuck at long distances, but eventually when entire U.S. will get covered with the superchargers - it would be a way to go everywhere. Made a trip SF-Morro Bay and had to stop at Super chargers twice each way, and some of those were not on my way at Pacific Highway 1.
What a car! Definitely an experience you need to try. My first experience being inside, and driving a tesla. The car was in great condition and chris was very helpful in making sure i was comfortable with its operation, as well as being flexible about pick up. Can't recommend this enough!
I loved this car. I feel so privileged to be able to drive Shubhang's Tesla. It is the most amazing car I have ever driven. If you have never driven a Tesla, you should rent this car. I am starting today to save my money for a used Tesla.
This was my second Turo rental and it went well (as did my first). I enjoyed driving Shubhang's Tesla S. Chris delivered the car and met us at SFO baggage claim with the vehicle for pickup/drop off - he was great to work with! Good communication and very punctual. It made the rental very smooth - much better than the standard rental experience.
My trip was really nice.
Car is in really good shape.
It even has baby booster in front trunk.
No daily miles limit & good supercharges allows you to travel a lot in this Tesla.
Shubhang & Chris were really easy to communicate and pretty flexible.
Car return was smooth and fast.
In care there were bunch of small details like water, napkins & chargers for iOS & Android that makes life better.
My trip was awesome!!! I did not want to end it. The car was clean. The instructions on driving and charging were explained completely. Shubhang and Chris were excellent hosts. I can't wait to rent from them again.
Great experience! Owner was quite accommodating of our schedule for pickup/drop off and provided a nice tutorial of the cars features. The car was in great condition and very fun to drive. Strongly recommend this Tesla for any Bay Area visitors
Chris took care of everything. He has been amazing. Charging the car in town is really an issue. Either the pretty fast chargers belong to hotels and they charge from 65$ up or you find really slow free chargers which take 10 hours. Very challenging. Thank you for this great experience
It has been a recent dream of mine to drive in the unmistakable style of the all new Tesla Model S. Well, thanks to Shubhang, that dream has become a beautiful reality.
The experience started better than I dared imagine, with all the convenience of TURO but much better. The standard online signup was a breeze, but car itself over delivered on my expectations. The car, despite being a 2013 edition, drove smoother than the recurring dream I've had. I would say it "purred like a kitten," but it was actually more silent than a church mouse. In excellent condition, the dream car was clean, fully charged, and stocked with extras such as mobile device charging cables and water bottles.
Besides the slick ride, the customer service was also unbeatable. Friendly and very helpful, the owner spent time with me explaining every detail and tedious question I threw at him, with knowledge and grace. I could not have been more pleased. I will love to rent this car again in future!
Shubhang and Chris were really professional. Chris brought me the car and showed me some tips. Communication was easy and fast, Chris tried to help me with some tips for my trip by text messages. The car and its super good condition, the unlimited mileage, the kindness of Chris (he provided us with phone cables, water, gums etc) and the Tesla Supercharger made the trip great!!!
Booking was a piece of cake. Car was VERY nice and the acceleration gave me a stupid-big grin every time!
We drove to LA and back so waiting around at SC stations was a bit of an annoyance but I guess that is "EV Life." Thankfully, the car figures all of it out for you so you just have to do what it tells you. Where the car really shined was around town. It was so quiet and fun to drive, especially without any range anxiety. Thanks to Tesla's network of SC stations it is also a fine road trip car but maybe not ideal if you have a tight timeline or you are prone to anxiety.
The only big problem was the pick-up. There was a miscommunication on the owner's end and the car was not ready at the agreed time. We ended up getting the car an hour late, uncharged and uncleaned. However, the owner was very apologetic for the fiasco and gave us a generous refund for the stress and inconvenience. He definitely turned the experience around from negative to positive.
I'd definitely rent this Tesla from Shubhang again!
We had a wonderful time with the car, it was clean, in perfect working order and the owner was nice enough to provision it with a few bottles of water and plentiful USB cables. We had some traffic trouble that delayed our drop off and the owner was exceedingly graceful when we called explaining the situation. Will rent again when we are back in these parts.
4 stars for it being a tesla, and 1 for good communication with Chris, who delivered it on behalf of Subhang. -1 star for condition/cleanliness of the car.
Great car, and a pleasure to drive. However, 1. There was apparently an issue charging it fully overnight so Chris took it out to a supercharger to get it to about 70% for me for the day, then delivered it directly to me. Communication about this was great, as was coordination for drop off
2. The car was not clean. Certainly dirty outside, but inside there were chip crumbs and the touchscreen controls were pretty smudged. I cleaned the touchscreen but didn't do much else. For this price I would have expected the interior to at least have been cleaned.
3. Turned out at night that the left headlight didn't work consistently
4. Car does not have the newest tesla features like adaptive cruise control or autopilot, which is fine, but would have been nice to know upfront in details.
Fantastic quality service and very flexible with time During the trip we had a few question and when we called he was always picking up and ready to support us. We will for sure recommend this to anyone we meet. And the car was amazing to experience and drive.
Every Model S is quick, but the performance RWD version like Shubhangs are by far my favorite, This car didn't disappoint me one bit, easily putting a smile on my face with every press of the accelerator. The only thing I could criticize Shubhangs car on were the Getaround stickers. Teslas get a lot of attention on their own, and having to explain what Getaround was when stopped got a little old. But that aside, I see myself renting this car over and over.
I had a great trip to Oregon. The car has panoramic roof, alcantara headliner, and lots of room. It's in a beautiful white over black leather. I'd say the only worry I had was the thought of not enough charge. There was one scare while raining, traversing mountains up and down effected the range considerably, and I barely made it to the supercharger. I can't wait to drive one again!
This Tesla was so much fun to drive! We drove from San Fran up to wine country for a couple wine tours and back that night. The car drives fantastic and the technology in the Tesla is amazing! Shubhang made pick up and drop off of the Tesla very simple for us. Thank you!
Everything went perfectly fine, before the trip (with a lot of useful tips, including a video tutorial for the tesla first-timers like me:!) as well as during the trip. The car is awesome ; just beware if you're not used to it, the lack of motor noise leads easily to underestimate your speed... Would totally rent it again, and recommend it!
The car was in great condition and was an absolute pleasure to drive. The owner was very accommodating, flexible with the start/return times, and even drove us to our hotel after we returned the car. I couldn't wish for a better experience.
I had great time renting this Tesla. The car was nice and clean and the arrangement for picking up the car and dropping it was very convenient. Shubhang was also very supportive in terms of this rental experience. There was a mistake in my drop off time but he was kind of enough to work with me/Turo to resolve it. I would definitely recommend renting car from him to everyone.
