Drive a Tesla

The future is here and it’s electric

When it comes to electric vehicles, one name still rises above the rest: Tesla Motors. The California-based automaker gets all the buzz because they’ve proven that EVs can be appealing, exciting, and powerful.

Driving a Tesla is a whole different experience than driving a traditional car. If you’ve never been behind the wheel, you can find Tesla rental alternatives here on Turo to get a full sample of the electric lifestyle.

The ultimate in EV

Tesla is the biggest name in electric vehicles because they were the first to make them appealing to the masses. They’ve won car buyers over with impressive battery range, cutting-edge tech, and a novelty factor that still hasn’t worn off.

Sleek simplicity

The Tesla design language is one of sleek minimalism, both inside and out. Tesla models famously come with one giant touchscreen that controls just about every function inside the cabin — no more buttons, knobs, or dials.

Mind-blowing speed

Long gone are the days of small puttering EVs. Tesla makes some of the quickest-accelerating production cars on the planet, thanks to instant electric torque from their giant batteries — especially with Ludicrous Mode.

Test drive a Tesla on Turo

Curious about all the Tesla hype? Want to know what it’s like to drive and live with an electric vehicle? Book a Tesla here on Turo and test drive it for a few days to get a sense of what the electric life is like. You can test out charging a Tesla at your home, at your office, or at charging stations around town.

Top Tesla models

Tesla Model 3

The smallest and most affordable Tesla is the Model 3, a compact sedan that comes at an accessible price but still has all the Tesla toys. The Tesla Model 3 Performance comes with dual motors and can accelerate to 60 in 3.2 seconds!

Tesla Model S

The Model S was the first mass-produced Tesla model, and helped launch the company into legitimacy among consumers. The seven-seat sedan is a top-notch luxury vehicle that just happens to run on electricity.

Tesla Model X

Falcon wing doors! There’s a lot to love about Tesla’s incredibly fast and exceptionally capable SUV, but besides the P100D’s Ludicrous Mode acceleration, the Tesla Model X’s dramatic falcon wing doors are the most exciting party piece.

Best Tesla Rental in the San Francisco/Bay Area. Looking forward to renting from Dan again! - JW

Tesla Model 3 2018

Great car for winter... Set up for Tahoe trips with genuine winter tires (not the m+s tires that some people claim are winter) combined with AWD and the Tesla advantage (fastest reaction for traction control) make this the best car for snow trips in California in any rental car. The roof rack is useful as well although I want skiing on this trip and didn't use it. The Tesla itself is of course a great car, long range but small enough to still fit through San Francisco streets. Drop off and pick up was pretty painless at the long term parking.

Daniel bailed me out when the host that I had a booked with cancelled my reservation at the last minute. If you want to rent a Tesla in San Francisco Daniel is your man. Great service, great cars at a fair price. If your thinking of buying an E.V renting one first is a great idea. I realized after driving his Model 3 that it is the best car on the road by far Nothing comes close!

Joseph's Tesla was a real delight to drive. Smooth and luxurious for sure. The car is immaculate and Joseph did a great job of walking us through the different settings in the car. Joseph was also very accommodating to our schedule. When I come back to San Francisco I will definitely be driving Tessy again.

I have to say my First time utilizing this service. And I love it. It was simple easy transaction and Monk the owner of the Car. the car was just amazing by explaining how the car works and by giving me a full description and really talking me through the how to use the car. If you are a first time Tesla driver that is. Amazing Service from Car owner. This is something you must do in San Francisco rent a Tesla, feel like you are really in the San Francisco area.

Leopoldo was a superb host! Very communicative. Everything went as planned. His Tesla was brand new and amazing to drive. I noticed that this was among the most popular cars in San Francisco- Model 3s everywhere. And I see why. It’s the perfect car for the streets of SF as you need to parallel park a lot and also good for Lombard aka Crooked Street lol - and nice to avoid the gas pump. My family and I did a ton of site seeing and we all enjoyed the car. We even put the caraoke to use and the fart feature made us all laugh 😂 You’ll see lol! All in all it was a fantastic experience!! I highly recommend Leopoldo and his Tesla! You won’t regret it!!

Awesome! Rented John's Tesla for a cruise from San Francisco to Monterey for a long weekend. It was so good. Turo Valet a convenient but I would not hesitate to arrange meeting the host at another location if it makes more sense. Turo is the future.

As a first time Tesla user, I throughly enjoyed the experience of driving Jasmit’s Tesla for the day in San Francisco. Jasmit (Jesse) is a fantastic communicator and very punctual. I would not hesitate in recommending the experience to drive a Telstra.....it’s very different but so cool. Only a five would be to figure out in advance where to find supercharge areas as it can be a pain to find.

Fun to take this new Tesla out for the weekend. If this is your first drive in a Tesla there is a learning curve, like going from PC to Mac. The car is mint condition and your host is reliable and responsive. If you are a Tesla enthusiast, I recommend this car and host.

Tesla Model 3 2019

I rented this Tesla for a long weekend and found just how comfortable they are on long drives. I went up north from San Francisco and all through the redwoods of Northern California. I’m so glad I got the extended range on the Model 3 because there were times that I followed a canyon road just to enjoy a few more miles. And then a few more... You get the idea. I was still always within a good rage to return to a charging station. So this Tesla was the perfect introduction to riding long trips with electric cars. As for Ryan himself? Well, Ryan exemplifies exactly what a Turo renter should be: 1. Clear, safe, and concise communication from the start. 2. Additional options to cover any type of trip (the added game controllers were great) 3. Clearly passionate about electric cars and the care shows throughout the ride Conclusion: if you are interested is renting any Tesla here, make sure to rent with Ryan first.

Another fabulous trip in Michelle’s Tesla model 3. This is my second or third time renting from her and will continue to do so each time I’m back in SF and her car is available. Communication/ delivery/ extensions are always super easy and tbh, the best turo experience I’ve ever had.

Garland was a great host, he made pick up and drop off an absolute breeze. His car has all of the bells and whistles you would hope to experience when renting a Tesla. A lot of Tesla’s on turo do not have autopilot/autosteer, but Garland’s model S90d definitely does. Overall my experience was top notch and I don’t think it could have went any better. I will definitely be looking for this car in the future when I’m back in SF. Thanks, Garland!

Jason was an incredible host. His Tesla model 3 was just what I needed for my trip. The only negative was that I could not extend for (the 3rd time) an additional day, totally not his fault and completely my own fault for not planning ahead. Jason’s Tesla was great to drive and he kept an open line of communication the entire time. Not much more you could ask for out if a host. Will definitely recommend/rent from him in the future. Thanks, Jason!

Always great to drive a Tesla, and Emal was very helpful and even set up a "profile" for me. The only caveat is that, one the booking, insurance, and charging fees are added in, the cost was closer to $200 than the $119 listing price.

This was my first time using Turo and Fenil was the most delightful/ helpful host I could ask for. Extremely helpful and always got back to me in a timely manner.
