Does the Tesla have a gasoline engine?
No. It is 100% electric. It requires recharging at home, or office, hotel, public charging or Tesla Supercharger.
How do I recharge the Tesla?
At home: use the power cord & 110V adapter to plug into an outlet in your garage. That will recharge at 2-5 miles per hour plugged in. Slow but steady.
Public charging - use the PlugShare App to find public charging (hundreds of chargers in Atlanta & Georgia). Use the Level 2 adaptor to mate the public charger to the Tesla. You will get 18-22 miles of range added per hour connected. Most public charging stations have a fee. A Charge Point card is included for use during your rental. Other stations use credit cards.
Supercharger- drive to Atlantic Station red level P1 and find 10 chargers. Just plug in & charge up fast- 30-45 minutes. Same at Tesla Decatur store: 4 ports.
Nav system will route you to Superchargers & local hotels & restaurants which have Tesla level 2 chargers.
How do I know when to charge?
If your battery range is at 50 miles its time to find a local charger.
What is Auto-Pilot?
Auto-pilot (version 1) combines Adaptive Cruise Control & Auto Steer to create a driver assisted capability. It will keep the Tesla 2-7 car lengths behind, stay in the lane and execute left & right lane changes.
It also has Auto Park for parallel parking & Summon to retrieve the Tesla from its parking space.
Tesla constantly updates Auto Pilot so ask about the latest features.
What happens if the Tesla has a service issue while I am renting it?
Call me & Tesla Service (number provided) and we will resolve the issue.
What happens if I run the Tesla out of battery?
Call me & Tesla Service to arrange a flat bed tow. You will be charged the cost if the tow plus a $100 service fee.
Can I drive out of state?
Generally no. But there are exceptions. I permit trips to Chattanooga because there is a Super Charger at the airport & that gives North GA travelers a chance to experience Tesla ownership.
Can I let my spouse or friends drive your Tesla during my rental?
Only if they are added to your trip reservation and are approved by Turo which includes setting up a Turo account.
