Tesla Model S85 with autopilot, black leather interior, free charging on Tesla's supercharger network. Range is about 400km at 105km/h but depends on outside temperatures and speed. 120km/h at -20°C yields about 300km and 80km/h at +20°C yields 500+ km. Quebec has a well developed charging network but Ontario and the maritime provinces requires more planning. I'm always happy to help plan charging options if you are road tripping off the main highways (which are mostly covered by Tesla's supercharger network). Non smoking car, thank you.

My car spends a lot of time parked at the airport. If I'm working we need to do the handoff remotely. I will direct you where to go to access the car. Please take the required pictures and when you are satisfied that all is good I will unlock the doors remotely. There will be a key fob inside the car in a metal case. Simply remove the key fob from the metal case so that the car can detect it and off you go. You can return the car to the same place and put the key fob back in the metal case. Please read Turo's FAQ with all the details on how remote key exchanges work.
Where can I recharge the car?
Tesla Superchargers are preferred. Their location can be found on the cars navigation display by tapping on the lightning bolt icon. Supercharging typically recharges the entire battery in about an hour. Charging on level 2 chargers (220V/40A) also works but is much slower and charges at a rate of about 40km of range per hour it is charging. There is an app called PlugShare to help find these charging stations. If nothing else is available a good old 110V outlet also works but is extremely slow at about 5km worth of charge per hour. This is only useful for giving you an extra 40km overnight.
How can I maximise the car's range?
You can maximize range by using smooth and steady acceleration and avoiding last minute braking, relying on re-gen instead. This transforms the car's kinetic energy into electricity and feeds it into the battery instead of wasting it. As in any car driving faster uses more energy. The colder it is the more energy the car uses. Heating the cabin draws a lot of power so using the minimum and opting for the heated seats instead is more efficient. Headwinds affect range negatively and tailwinds extend range. Using the radio or fog lights has virtually no effect on range.
Can I recharge on non-Tesla charging stations?
Most public charging stations use a J1772 plug. The Tesla has an adapter to use these charging stations. Simply put the adapter on the charging cable and then plug it into the car. Make sure the LED ring around the charge port is white before inserting. If it is not just use the key FOB and press on the trunk button for a few seconds until the charge port unlocks and then plug it in. When it's charging the LED ring will flash green.
Some public charging stations are free but most require a small fee. This is the case for circuit électrique charging stations. To use them you must first download their app and create an account. They generally cost $1 per hour.
How does autopilot work?
If you chose to use autopilot, first you need to know that you are still the driver and you are still responsible for the car's actions. You need to remain focused on the road at all times and your hands should still be on the steering wheel and ready to take over at any time. "The autopilot did it" is not a valid defense in court. Autopilot is to be used on divided highways and only where there are no intersections.
Autopilot can be engaged by pulling the small stock on the left side of the steering wheel toward you twice. You will hear a double tone and see the steering wheel icon on the instrument display turn blue. This confirms autopilot is on. Autopilot will follow the flow of traffic and keep the car in the lane. To change the speed simply give the autopilot stalk a full tick up or down for 5km/h or a half tick for 1km/h speed change. To change lanes make sure there is no one in the adjacent lane and use the turn signal to change lanes. The car can not detect fast approaching cars in the adjacent lane. If you are following a slower moving car and decide to change lanes the autopilot will automatically accelerate to the previously selected speed. To cancel autopilot push the autopilot stalk away from you. You can also disengage the auto steering portion by overriding the steering wheel. This leaves traffic aware cruise control engaged. The cruise control portion can be cancelled via the stalk or by a light tap on the brake pedal.
