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: The car will be charged before pick up. Please do return the car with at least 30 miles of charge. If you would like to purchase a Tesla Model S or X, this referral link can get you 6 months of free supercharging:

Pet fee
As a policy, pets are not permitted in this car. If you do need to keep a pet in this car, it will incur a $250 cleaning charge. If you prepay, the charge is $150.

Parking details

We have a monthly pass for the parking garage near Pier 39. Please coordinate with Chris. Once he takes the Tesla out, you can use the same pass to park your car.


It is best, to not let the remaining charge, fall below 50 miles. Please return the car with at least 50 miles of charge. No pets, and no smoking, please! A $250 cleaning fee will be applied if there are any stains or traces of smoke, foul smell, or pet evidence detected.


  • Save on gas! Drive electric
    This car includes free Tesla supercharger access. Most Tesla destination chargers are also free.
  • Videos, providing information about the operation, of a Tesla Model S
  • Does this car have Fastrak?
    A Fastrak toll payment device is installed in this car. All Fastrak tolls are included in the rental.
  • 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.

  • What is the cleaning policy?
    Please help keep the car clean. Here are the Turo cleaning policies: LIGHT CLEANING - NO CHARGE Minimal amounts of trash. Small amounts of crumbs, sand, or dirt on floor mats that can be shaken off or vacuumed out. Small marks that can be cleaned off easily by hand. MODERATE CLEANING - UP TO $50 Car exterior is returned significantly* dirtier than it was received (e.g. dirt on car body, wheels, or windows). Floor mats or upholstery are returned significantly* dirtier than they were received (e.g. requires more than a shake-out to be restored to original condition). Large amounts of food, dirt, or mud that cannot be shaken out and must be heavily vacuumed to remove. Light stains or residue on hard surfaces (e.g. liquid spills or sticky substances). *In the event of a dispute, Turo will use its discretion to determine the amount of the reimbursement. HEAVY CLEANING - $100 Major stains or residue on seat fabric or other hard-to-clean surfaces. SEVERE CLEANING - $150 Situations in which a car contains the aforementioned violations on an egregious level that would require steam cleaning or a full detail. PET HAIR - $150 If a pet enters a vehicle at any time without a host’s consent, the guest will be held responsible for having the car cleaned. Hosts may still charge cleaning fees if they give consent and the car is returned with significant amounts of pet hair. Service animals are not excluded from this policy. SMOKING - $50 OR $150 $50 for smoke scent removal only. $150 for smoke scent removal and physical remnants of smoking (e.g. ash, cigarette butts). If there is damage to your car (e.g. a burn mark), you should submit a damage claim, not a cleaning reimbursement. MAXIMUM - $250 If a car is returned with multiple cleanliness issues (such as a combination of severe cleaning and smoking remnants), the maximum fee that will be assessed is $250.

Last minute we had to switch to a Model 3, and it was more than seamless with the transition. Thank you for all the help & will absolutely use again next time I am in San Fran!

Overall a great experience. Chris and Shubhang were very professional, responsive and a pleasure to work with! The car performed as advertised, however, note that it does show its age with over 230K miles on the clock. If your looking for a “fresher” Tesla experience, I’d unfortunately recommend another vehicle. That being said, I’d most definitely rent another vehicle from Shubhang!

Everything was great. The only exception was that the steering and drive train felt more loose than should be expected. Check when you can but not enough to dock a star. Thank you again!

What a fantastic experience! Shubhangs Tesla is a blast to drive and highly recommend if you have not driven a Tesla before. Acceleration is instant and seamless and the user iPad interface made traveling simple and easy. Also free super chargers were a plus. It was great to not pay for gas! Rent a Tesla and you won’t be disappointed.
