Please be aware, my Model X does NOT have autopilot!
The Tesla model X is, without a doubt, the closest thing to traveling in one's own private, luxury space ship. Certainly, the rear falcon-wing doors are a sight to see (as well as making it incredibly easy to access any of the five full seats in the back of the vehicle), but they are mere garnish on a technological dish of unbelievable power and versatility.
With a Tesla, you can also take advantage of the fact that you will not have to visit any gas stations. Charge quickly (45 minutes or less), and for free, at Tesla Super Chargers, to get over 200 miles of range.

Gets you over 250mi range if charged to capacity.
If you've just arrived at SFO make sure to tell me whether you are at the international or the domestic terminal. Then, at the arrivals level, let me know the number of the exit doorway near which to meet you.
If you want a delivery somewhere in the city, please make sure that there is a place I can easily park the car.
No smoking in or near car. No pets in car.
Where should I charge the Tesla?
The simplest thing to do is to use the built in GPS to search for the closest super charger. Not only are they free, but you can get close to a full battery, from empty, in about 45 minutes. The most important thing is to plan your trips carefully, noting where to stop along the way if the trip is longer than 200 miles. If you use the built in GPS, the car will plan the route for you, including charge stops.
What is regenerative breaking?
This is a system built into the engine of the Tesla that allows it to use deceleration to add some charge back to the battery. The most important thing to note about this system is the way it will affect what would be coasting in other vehicles. The regenerative breaking is fairly strong, meaning that unless you maintain light pressure on the accelerator, the car will slow down quite quickly, even if you don't press on the brakes! Accelerating and decelerating are different in a Tesla, and you should take a few minutes to get used them.
2017 Tesla Model XStephen's Tesla1555
It was a really great experience. Stephen was great and the car is really nice! Nothing could be better.
Stephen was awesome to work with. He was on time, extremely clear about the functionality of the car and all it's features. The Tesla Model X was super practical and fun, my family really enjoyed our time with it and will hopefully book it again in the future. Can't see enough good things about the experience!
Stephen can most definitely be the poster guy for Turo. He went above and beyond to ensure our experience was absolutely perfect. His is a brand new Model X and I don't think I need to write anything about the car itself. It is the coolest piece of tech on four wheels on this planet and Stephen keeps it spotless.
What really surprised us was how willing Stephen was to invest his own time in making our experience awesome. He was always available for every question, showing us how the car works, and even went out of his way to drop us back to our destination at the end of the trip. If you are looking to rent a Model X in San Francisco, I guarantee that there can be no one better than Stephen to rent from.
It was truly an amazing experience! Stephen was warm and inviting to work with. His Tesla X was perfect and immaculate. This was my first experience with Tesla and now I know it won't be my last. My next car will be a Tesla! Thanks again Stephen and Turo!
