Tesla to Offer Loaner Car Service to Owners
There’s good news for Tesla owners: company CEO Elon Musk recently announced that he plans to create a fleet of loaner cars that owners can borrow while theirs is in service.
So what does a Tesla loaner look like? Musk says they will be the performance version of the Model S, which means a 4.2-second 0-60 mph sprint and up to 265 miles of range. The fleet will be composed of about 80 cars now that production is starting to catch up to consumer orders according to USA Today.
Not only that, but the loan program will see those cars delivered to owners at their homes, offices or whatever the most convenient place might be.
Musk was recently in the news after a trip he made to Texas where he lobbied for the brand to be allowed to sell cars in the state. Tesla uses a direct-to-customer sales model instead of a traditional dealer network, which is prohibited in the state.
