Have to add, they also do 'short term garage fit' tests, but as was said here, having it for the whole day and doing a real test drive, multiple tests in the garage, driving around town, perhaps a drive to a Supercharger (as we did), is really an excellent test of how you like it. Also gives you a real test of AP without Sales people in the car.Yes they do. My wife and I scheduled a regular test drive but asked before we showed up, that if we liked it after the at-store test drive, could we take it for 24hr. They made it happen.
It was very helpful. We where able to see how it fit in the garage and then we where able to drive the MX to work, lunch, etc... By the time we brought it back to the SC our mind was made up. Hope this helps.
hi all, new here. I was curious if Tesla offers extended test drives to non-owners? Thanks in advance!
They do. I was torn between a getting a 6 seater vs a 7 seater. I ended up having an overnight test drive for a 6 seater for a Friday overnight, returned it and got a 7 seater for Saturday overnight. It really helped me make a decision with the kids at the back seat going around with our normal weekend routine.
As we live 828 km from the nearest (Montreal) location, I asked if we took the time to drive up and stay overnight if this was possible to have it overnight.
Nope, best we can hope for is 15 minutes.
Gotta think that driving 8 hours each way would show we're serious. maybe they think this sale is already in the bag as I've been driving another EV for 4 years and have displayed a fair bit of research completed.
They would be wrong, especially as we are seeing a fairly high level of delivery issues with the X that would be difficult to deal with so far away.
I'm thinking this purchase is close to being delayed another year while we see how things go.
Will definitely do that if we can resolve the service at 800 km away issues (supposedly soon to be ONLY 600 km away)
How did you get it?After a couple of short accompanied test drives it was no problem arranging a weekend test drive here in the UK. Although I did actually order the car ahead of the extended test drive as the finance rate was about to go up and I didn't want to miss out. Luckily it was as good as I'd expected from the short test drives!
