Description

***Auto-Pilot - YES!*** Auto-Steer + Smart Cruise Control ***Return Without Re-Charging - $18*** MAX RANGE: 240 Miles MAX SPEED: 85mph (Speed limited for all rentals) MAX DRIVE MODE: CHILL (Hardwired to Max Speed) 0-60MPH Around 6 exhilarating seconds! ***Pay-As-You-Go*** Tesla Supercharging - Tesla charging costs are about $7.00 per 100 "Battery Miles". This will be billed back to you separately at the end of your trip. "Battery Miles" equals "Actual Driven Miles" if you stay at or below 65mph and don't stomp on the accelerator pedal. But of course it is fun to do so, just will cost you more at the charging station. Scroll down to the end to find out more. Superb road trip vehicle with abundant Tesla supercharging stations. Premium vegan leather seating and stunning sound system that is superior to most cars out there. Both wireless & wired phone charging (up to 4 devices) included and additional 2xUSB ports at the rear. Phenomenal panoramic glass roof! BUYING A TESLA? Get FREE SUPERCHARGING MILES (1,000 miles) Some guests rent to try out this base (240 Mile) model to see if it fits their needs and have already bought as a result. Use my referral code to get this special offer! http://ts.la/stephen1242 No charge for cleaning, but Sorry! No Pets, No Smoking, No Vaping. Professional detailing charges of $150 apply. This charge will only apply if the car is left excessively dirty (or with odors) as described here. BATTERY LEVEL - Upon Pickup: You will have at least 150 miles to start your journey, just plug into to Tesla Superchargers when you need to. BATTERY LEVEL - Upon Return: Please re-charge to 150 miles (allow 30 mins in your trip for this) More if there is a line at the charging station. MEXICO & CANADA destinations are prohibited. Additional costs will be applied. MIN AGE: Drivers must be 25 years or older. CHARGING PRICE PENALTIES: $1.00 per minute for late return to car after charging is complete. Unfortunately ALL Charging stations have a punitive "Idle Fee" if charging is completed and not unplugged and RE-PARKED. So please set your timer on your phones to when the car's displays says charging is completed (charging is usually complete in 30-40 mins). Return to the car immediately, unplug and RE-PARK the car in a different legal parking spot, even if the station is empty at the time. These fines/penalties are not included in the rental price and will be billed back. DRIVER ASSIST FEATURES: - Enjoy Intelligent Cruise Control... the car will adjust speed to slow down or speed up depending to what the cruise control is set to. Very good also in stop and go highway traffic jams or rush hour traffic. - Autopilot... Do not recommend using. Is quite difficult to get use to unless you are a seasoned Tesla driver. - WARNING!!! This car DOES NOT "SELF DRIVE"... not in the least. The driver must be attentive at all times and is responsible for all accidents, traffic fines and insurance claims. However, please use all the safety "assist" features and don't panic. Some of these features are so advanced, it is easy to get confused at first. Just lightly tap on the brakes and slow down until you know what is happening. Cruise control or anything that could be confusing is controlled/disabled by just tapping on the brakes. It's that simple. - You may also charge at home if you have an Oven/Dryer outlet (NEMA 14-50) or at a 3rd party charging station on your own account. - Driving Electric & Tesla is so relaxing and rewarding, however driving above 75mph and then getting stuck in 10 mins of stop & go traffic, results in nothing but significantly fewer "battery miles" when you reach your destination. It takes an hour of driving at 10mph to gain a distance of 10 miles arriving earlier at your destination. - To add insult to injury, the "lost battery miles" due to stomping on the accelerator and going at 85mph will take you roughly an additional 20 mins to recover those miles when charging. Not really worth it to drive at 85mph. - The best way to drive electric is just set the cruise control and auto-pilot to 65-75mph and let the car do most of the driving for you. You will gain more time by changing to faster moving lanes at 65-75mph, than pushing it to 85mph and then getting stuck in stop & go for 20 mins.

Guidelines

***CHARGING - Please see the "Car Guide" on how to do this. ***AUTO-PILOT - Please see FAQ's, This is still BETA software! ***INSURANCE - Please see the "Car Guide". Accidents may not be your fault, but it is very expensive if you are not covered under Turo's pricing policies.

Faqs

  • How long does it take to Fast Charge the car?
    For this car, the simple answer is 80 miles for each 15 minutes! So plugging in at one of Tesla's Supercharger for 30 minutes will get you around 160 miles. NOTE: Getting that last 80 miles (240 miles total) is not a good use of your time during the rental. The last 80 miles will take at least ANOTHER 30-45 minutes of time you may not have. If you are having dinner and want that total 60-90 minutes, then sure... maybe it is okay to charge up fully. It is your time during the rental. If you are on the road, that other 30-45 minutes is better spent charging at the next stop along your journey. A few tips... on the car's display, the Superchargers will show the power level at each location. It may seem that the larger the power level, may suggest a faster charge time. For instance power levels of 120kW and 150kW may be shown, but most of these locations "SHARE" the power between two cars, so the resultant power to YOUR car is halved to 60-75kW for the duration that both cars are plugged in. So it maybe better to just head to a 72kW supercharger as those ones do NOT share power. This 72kW is dedicated to each car/stall in order to get the 80 miles for each 15 mins. Lastly, there is no need to charge unless the battery is down to 30 or 50 miles left. Charging the car when you still have 100 miles, will reduce the charge speed, so when you sit there for 15 minutes, you may not get the full 80 miles per 15 minutes. Of course this depends on where you are in your journey. Just plan ahead according to your needs.
  • Does AUTO-PILOT "Full Self Drive"? Can the driver be handsfree and not be responsible for accidents and mishaps?
    NOPE, NOPE, and NOPE! This car has exactly the same Auto-Pilot software as the optional extra $7,000 feature that other owners may decide to purchase. Neither option, functions better than the other. The $7,000 option owners purchase is for additional features such as "Automatic Lane Changing", "Automatic On-Ramp/Off-Ramp on Freeways", "Smart Summon" and other newer features as time goes on. It also will include an upgrade to newer hardware that allows for more computational cycles to process the additional software features. It requires a lot of brain power to do all these new fancy things and all at the same time! Tesla classifies ALL "Auto-Pilot" and "Full Self Driving" features INCLUDING "Auto-Steer" and "Smart Cruise Control" as BETA software! All guests who rent this and other Tesla cars must know that the driver is ALWAYS responsible for any mishaps and accidents when under any version of "Auto-Pilot" control. AUTO-PILOT DOES MAKE YOUR LONG TRIPS VERY REFRESHING when you reach your destination. Reduces stress and allows you to relax more, especially in stop-and-go rush hour traffic. However, unfortunately with all new technology, there have been deaths (around 6 cases) due to Auto-Pilot not being used in the correct manner. There have been more than dozens of non-fatal accidents, along with "close calls", such as phantom breaking issues that may cause drivers behind you to rear-end you, driving too close to wall barriers or other vehicles, not seeing cars that cut into your lane too fast, or just not recognizing pedestrians etc... It is AI (artificial intelligence) software and it is still learning. Please enjoy it for what it is and know that you are helping it improve should you choose to use it. Lastly, if it makes you uncomfortable, you DO NOT HAVE to use it. Consider it like a new/young driver, it can make mistakes and you need to always supervise the new driver.
