Hey, what happens if you buy two Model Ses?

    So, going to buy the second MS in a couple of months and I just realized that I don't know if the systems can handle it. For example, what happens to the phone app? Which car is associated with it? What happens to the web pages where I see buttons and it tells me my status? Am I going to have to create a new account for the second MS?

    Has anyone done this yet?

    This is not a bad problem to have!

    The good news is it appears the App has the capability for it.

    It's not an issue at all, Tesla thought of this. The only "problem" might be deciding which one to drive. :smile:

    With multiple electric cars in the garage, do you have to charge them one after the other? Can they all be plugged in at the same time?

    Tesla app and website are not a problem as Laurent's screenshot shows. You can toggle between cars easily. We regularly charge simultaneously from two 240v outlets. No issues at all having more than one Model S, except being quite a bit lighter in the wallet! According to our delivery specialist when we picked up #2, there are a few his and hers Model S's in the Bay Area. We're huge fans of the company and really want it to succeed, so when my husband and I were both in need of new cars, the choice was clear.

    Cool, I'd wondered this too. I guess Tesla was prepared for folks wanting to jump in with both feet (and hands).

    I have three on my account (my brother, father, and mine). All three work on the app, and your "My Telsa" account on teslamotors.com displays each car. I have a Model X reserved (for my wife). The real question is: what happens when there is a fourth car on the app?

    perhaps the app scrolls up or down to see the 4th car and so on...

    I have two and the app works fine. In the category of too much information ;), my wife and I no longer call to see who will be home first/ where are your/ etc. We just check the app and we can see where the other car is. We have even called and reminded each other to plug in while traveling...

    Did you report the bug to ownership that the color is wrong on your blue vehicle in the phone UI?

    We've just ordered our second, so now we'll have his and hers. Thanks for showing the app. We were wondering how that would work. It was hard to choose a different car for the second one when we know how great the Model S is.
