    Battery Charging between LA & SF [edited title]

    I’ve purchased a SR+ model 3 and will be driving back and forth between LA & SF fairly often (~360 miles). Will I be able to make it only stopping and charging once along the way? I don’t mind stopping for a longer 30-40 min charge if I only have to stop 1 time. But since I’ll be making this...

    Where can we rent a Model 3 (or any Tesla) in LA?

    Travelling to LA today for a business trip, and as we’re going to SF on Wednesday, and need a car up there, I figured it would be nice to drive up along the coast (my co-worker has never driven that route). As we both have Teslas (Model X), we really don’t want to drive an ICE, so I’m trying to...
